Breaking Down Barriers
OneScreen canvas brings collaborative learning opportunities to over five hundred primary schools in the KPK region of Pakistan.
Chris De Leon, Donna ISD’s Head of English for Diverse Learners, explained, “While student needs change every year, one constant is the increasing pressure from parents, school board members, and the students themselves to see hands-on applications of technology in the classroom. Collaboration across devices, self-paced homework, usage analytics… things like these are becoming as vital to us in the modern classroom as pencils and notebooks were in the old world.”
Teachers recognized that they needed to convey, not just more detailed knowledge and life skills, but also hope and wonder. The teachers in this rural community have read the same studies as their urban counterparts, which concluded that collaborative projects with rich, interactive learning experiences show students how to succeed. Digital learning experiences in the classroom awaken a driving curiosity about the world, but telling doesn’t work without showing. Students truly immersed in blended learning are better able to navigate this new world they’ve inherited.
With their budgetary constraints and tight school-year timeline, the teachers and staff at Donna ISD had no room for error. They needed a technological platform that worked from Day One, tech that was as easy to use as a chalkboard, yet contained the potential for unlimited learning.
OneScreen gave Donna ISD a plug-and-play interactive flat panel that put the collective knowledge of the internet at their fingertips — literally. OneScreen incorporated the most advanced tech for interactive whiteboards, blended and distance learning tools, classroom collaboration tools, formative assessment tools, and functionally infinite variations on lesson plans.
Best of all, the OneScreen team was there for the teachers long after launch with capacity-building support and unlimited online training. Our Screen Skills Guru technical support is available to ease the transition via video, phone and live chat for six years, and an interactive knowledge base for the longer term.
Donna ISD’s Director of Science Emily Anderson said, “OneScreen has been the ultimate eLearning solution that allows students to seamlessly blend classroom and online learning. Teachers can organize, present, or assign assessments, collaborate with students, and record learning at every step of the way.”
