This notable school in Spain innovates classrooms with Interactive Displays to Boost
San Vicente de Paúl School
A school with over 125 years of history continues to encourage collaborative learning with the multi-functional Clevertouch® IMPACT display.
The San Vicente de Paúl School (Limpias, Cantabria, Spain) provides Early Childhood, Primary, and Secondary education to the surrounding communities. The school has long been a proponent of using digital media to innovate learning experiences for their learners. Antonio Medina, Director of San Vicente de Paúl School, stated, “(We are) applying training and innovation in our educational work, emphasizing new technologies and languages.” The ongoing aim of this is to support students strengthening their skills. “(The intention is) that the students discover and enhance their physical, emotional, intellectual and attitudinal skills, assuming their own qualities and limitations,” added Medina. San Vicente de Paúl School was always on the lookout for technology to innovate student learning. This is when Clevertouch Technologies’ solutions were introduced.
In its continuing endeavor to improve the teaching and learning experience through the use of new and cuttingedge technologies, San Vicente de Paúl invested in the Clevertouch IMPACT interactive displays. With the help of Clevertouch partner, Charmex AV Technology and distributor Elematica de Cantabria, IMPACT interactive displays were installed in some secondary classrooms. After an initial training on the basics of the interactive display, including practical examples and uses, the staff was ready to start.
Thus far, there has been positive feedback regarding the innovative features of the IMPACT displays such as helping teachers save time when planning classes because of the considerable number of resources and learning activities available with the display solution. Cleverstore, included free with the IMPACT, makes available hundreds of educational apps that are vetted and are aligned with key learning objectives.
In addition to Cleverstore, the following features innovates what teachers can do and boosts student engagement:
Annotation and lesson planning software that maximizes collaboration opportunities. This cloud-based multi-device software permits teacher and students to search images, videos, and GIFs and drag-and-drop them directly onto the lesson, including content searched from Google.
This education software enables teachers to personalize instruction while making lessons relevant to students’ lives. The Snowflake technology also allows teachers to create zones for independent, personalized student work which not only meets students’ needs but boosts engagement and collaboration.
“The (interactive displays) offer an intuitive and collaborative experience which adapts to the cooperative learning methodology with which teamwork is encouraged so that (teachers’) students acquire necessary skills.”
