Problem

The school was having a number of problems with its long-throw interactive projectors, including reduced picture sharpness and loss of interactivity in bright classrooms, as well as the additional costs required by lamp service or replacement. With plans to invest further in educational technology, the school looked for new projection alternatives that would improve the students’ classroom experience and offer a better cost-benefit ratio.

Solution

Edulink, a specialist in educational technology solutions, suggested ViewSonic ViewBoard interactive displays as the best solution to replace the school’s aging projectors. With a 4K Ultra HD 20-point touchscreen, a ViewBoard display remains bright and visible even in well-lit classrooms. In addition, the school also liked that Edulink would be responsible for ViewBoard installation and training.

In total, the school acquired eight units of the ViewSonic ViewBoard IFP7550: a 75” interactive display with 4K Ultra HD resolution and immersive 20-point touchscreen. The displays were installed in second and third grade classrooms for the benefit of more than 240 students.

Result

The administration and staff at Colegio San Agustín de Chiclayo have been extremely pleased with their new ViewBoard displays. With superior image quality, immersive interactivity, and incredible audio, the ViewBoard displays have provided a huge upgrade over the outdated long-throw projectors previously in use by the school.

“The ViewBoard displays deliver increased classroom collaboration, and allow for lessons that are more dynamic, interactive, and multifunctional,” said Janinne del Carmen Rojas, Coordinator of Information Technology for Colegio San Agustín de Chiclayo. “The displays also allow teachers to use different resources that, together with the Internet, enable them to immediately investigate and solve various student concerns. And thanks to the 4K images, children can begin to shape their ideas and imagination.”

In fact, these positive results have helped to reaffirm the administration’s decision to continue their edtech investments for the remaining grades over the next year. To take full advantage of their ViewBoard displays, the school plans on installing wireless systems throughout the campus. In addition, with ViewBoard displays in place of old projectors, the school’s concerns over support, filter and lamp replacements, and maintenance costs have all but vanished.

Alex Carlos, Manager of ViewSonic Peru, stated that more and more educational institutions are investing in technology not only at the university level, but at earlier stages to make pedagogical practices more dynamic. In that sense, Carlos believes that Colegio San Agustín de Chiclayo is committing to the future with its ViewBoard investment, while also strengthening its educational leadership in the northern Peruvian region.

“Today’s educational institutions cannot grow with their backs to technology,” said Carlos. “And it is gratifying to see cases like this in which the school is committed to implementing technology fit for today’s students, while also meeting the educational expectations of their parents. We hope to continue supporting this growth and establish a relationship of long encouragement and satisfaction.”
