Interactive Displays Help Young Students Learn to Be Tech Savvy

A preschool in South Africa implements interactive display technology to boost learning and tech skills

Challenge

Cows & Calves Preschool (Koetjies & Kalfies Kleuterskool, Centurion, South Africa) encourages their students to “learn and explore the world in which they live through discovery.” This includes integrating technology that enhances the learning experience for their young students. Because of their small class sizes, each student receives personal attention ensuring that individual needs can be met in dynamic and innovative ways.

With the help of The Smart Idea Group and Interactive AV Solutions, Cows & Calves Preschool invested in Clevertouch® interactive displays. More schools have implemented interactive displays in their learning environments because of their state-of-the-art features that are teacher- and student-friendly. The Cows & Calves community was no exception. "We invested in Clevertouch (interactive displays) in our classrooms as a teaching aid to assist children to broaden their knowledge and be techno smart,” stated Anell Harper, Principal of Cows & Calves Preschool.

Key Solution

Key foundations of the school’s educational mission are encouraging their students to learn and explore the world through discovery, as well as learning to share and show respect for one another. The Clevertouch interactive display helps teachers boost class collaboration and nurture teamwork via built-in apps such as Lynx and Snowflake.

    “We have found the Clevertouch interactive (displays) user friendly and are being used as an additional source of information regarding our weekly themes.”

    • Clevershare allows users to mirror content from a phone, laptop, or tablet onto the interactive display for increased opportunities to collaborate and connect.

    ​​​​​​​Benefits

    The implementation of interactive displays has had a positive impact on student learning. Harper commented, “We have found the interactive (displays) to be beneficial in developing hand coordination, midline crossing, and problem-solving skills.”

    They have also noted the favourable reaction of parents. Harper observed, “Our parents are extremely happy with the technology being introduced into the classrooms (because) it sets us apart from other preschools.”
