The Woodmansterne School is a community school in London, United Kingdom. Beginning as a small yet well-regarded primary school, Woodmansterne has since expanded its scope to include secondary education. In pursuit of its mission to give students the best education, Woodmansterne proudly adheres to six core values: integrity, cooperation, aspiration, respect, unity and responsibility.
It’s brand new secondary facility was completed in 2019 and the team took the opportunity to create a unified interactive teaching solution that would encompass every classroom in the school, without having to integrate with legacy systems. Woodmansterne could put aside compatibility concerns and focus solely on which solution would create the best learning environment.
To help the school staff make a more informed choice, BenQ loaned Woodmansterne a fleet of RP7501K Education Interactive Flat Panel displays for testing. Featuring exceptional image quality as well as a robust set of classroom-ready features, these panels were such a hit that the teachers who tried them couldn’t imagine sending them back.
The biggest selling point of BenQ Education Interactive Flat Panels was the Account Management System. With AMS, teachers are able to create lesson plans and materials, store them in the cloud, and then access them from any compatible display, all without the need for a laptop or PC. Better yet, there are no passwords to remember: teachers can log into a display by swiping a personal NFC card and instantly access their materials.
Because Woodmansterne installed BenQ RP7501K Education Interactive Flat Panel throughout the entire school, it’s easy for teachers to move from classroom-to-classroom. The AMS provides teachers with an unprecedented level of comfort, instantly making them feel confident in using the technology from any classroom. In addition to loaning the school panels for testing, BenQ also offered multiple on-site training sessions to help teachers and staff familiarize themselves with the new boards and learn how to use all the classroom-friendly features.
