Newline Smartboards – Lusitania Primary School, Zimbabwe

The Challenge

The Lusitania Primary School needed to modernize its learning environment. To meet the need for global competitiveness, the learning environment needed to be more engaging. The school was looking for long-term, modern, and interactive solutions for their classrooms and computer lab.

 

 

The school had overhead projectors, but the cost of maintaining them was prohibitively expensive. Lamps were blowing up, and there was the added expense of purchasing additional teaching devices.

 

The Solution

TRUTOUCH displays were installed in 12 classrooms at Lusitania Primary School. The all-in-one solution from Newline significantly reduced maintenance costs while impressing teachers and students alike with its ease of use and interactive nature.

 

We as a Microsoft Education Partner and Newline’s Official distribution Partner in Zimbabwe, facilitated the TRUTOUCH displays. We  came with a wireless presentation solution from that works seamlessly with the TRUTOUCH display. The non-proprietary nature of Newline displays enables schools to work seamlessly with their preferred software.

The Results

TRUTOUCH displays from Newline were installed with full broadband internet. This provides teachers with online research platforms, aids in content creation, and allows classes to collaborate with other schools around the world. Students enjoy doing daily exercises on the TRUTOUCH displays.

 

The TRUTOUCH displays enable Lusitania’s teachers to deliver more effective interactive lessons. Students can actively participate by dragging and dropping or writing answers on the display. Teachers in Lusitania can also use the TRUTOUCH setup to administer tests and quizzes.

 

Classrooms are more modern, interactive, and engaging than ever before thanks to Newline. According to the Minister of Education and the Portuguese Ambassador to Zimbabwe, the TRUTOUCH setup is the best so far in the entire country of Zimbabwe.

“It’s an outstanding job and learners are more motivated to attend classes as they are more interesting. The school has become the first Microsoft Testing Center with all the latest technologies in place. Students can write international exams and teacher can be trained and certified at the center too. “
