SMART Board Upgrade – Pinders Primary School, Wakefield
Pinders Primary School contacted Elementary Technology looking for advice on how to upgrade their ageing interactive whiteboards and classroom projectors. After an initial conversation, it was clear the best place to start was our Classroom Healthcheck – this provided them with a detailed overview of ‘where they are now’. Was their current technology supporting their teaching and learning?
After discussing the results of the Classroom Healthcheck, the headteacher concluded; ‘the highest priority was that teachers could no longer deliver lessons effectively’.
It became clear that for several reasons, the school needed to address the technology in virtually all their classrooms; the exception being two which used an interactive touchscreen yet without support from a previous supplier.
The result is a cutting-edge SMART Board 6000 Series interactive touchscreen in each classroom, and with the support of SMART Learning Suite software and our detailed, inclusive training, pupil engagement was transformed.
Since the upgrade took place we have worked closely with Pinders Primary School, supporting their ongoing school improvement and also their staff CPD.
An important part of this was working with their Deputy Head Teacher, Craig Fraser, who has since become a certified SMART Exemplary Educator! Recognised for his outstanding knowledge of SMART, and its effective use in the classroom to improve teaching, reduce workload, streamline assessment and more.
We look forward to continue our work with Pinders Primary School which to date has also included an upgrade of their School Hall technology and more.
