This week Samsung Canada introduced what they are calling “the classroom of the future” at Riverside Secondary School in Port Coquitlam BC.   The school is the first in Canada to pilot Samsung School, a digital classroom package.

Samsung School is designed to be a “more interactive form of classroom communication” also, “delivering improved classroom management for teachers, and enabling deeper learning for students through real-time screen and content sharing and interactivity features.”

For the first Canadian pilot, Samsung is providing the 11th grade physics class at Riverside Secondary School with Samsung School, which integrates 31 Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 units, a 65-inch digital e-Board and Samsung software.

“Samsung School is the classroom of the future, and it’s here today for Canadian teachers and students,” said Philippe Lozier, Director of Business Solutions for Samsung Canada. “In a technology-savvy world, educators have been eager to see digital classroom innovation move beyond just piecemeal device integration and toward a fully integrated solution. The pilot program in partnership with Riverside Secondary School will help us showcase that the solution is here and ready, and can give educators the ability to digitally engage their students like never before.”

To date, more than 20 schools around the world from Africa to Asia, Europe and North America have piloted Samsung School. As will be the case with Riverside Secondary School, each of these real-world pilots have helped enhance and prove Samsung School before it launches. Research has shown improvements in class convenience, student engagement and lesson comprehension.

“Although we’ve only just introduced Samsung School, it’s already bringing such a dynamic energy to the classroom,” said Anthony Ciolfitto, Principal of Riverside Secondary School. “As educators, there is nothing more fulfilling than seeing a class full of students who are engaged and excited to learn. This is revolutionizing the classroom experience for our students and teachers alike.”
