Case Study

Case Study Du Bois Integrity Academy

Riverdale, GA bears the distinction of being one of the most viewed yet least visited towns in the world. More than 100 million travelers see this iconic American town from the air each year as they come into Hartseld-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the busiest airport on the planet for 20 years running. Du Bois Integrity Academy strives to provide excellence in K-5 education for the 4000+ households of Riverdale as the population steadily ows from the urban center of downtown Atlanta to surrounding suburbs.

The Problem

Du Bois Integrity Academy is one of approximately 60 charter schools in the greater Metro Atlanta region. As such, it operates independently but with public funding. That means that it’s required to meet all of the academic and other performance benchmarks as a public school in order to maintain its charter.

Stephanie Payne, principal of Du Bois Integrity Academy, said, “We operate under tremendous pressure to prove ourselves on the ground every day, helping kids from all sorts of backgrounds discover that they can learn more and achieve more than they ever thought possible. The entire world is right outside our door and it’s up to us to make sure these child children understand how important they are in the big picture.”

The reality she faces is that Georgia schools have to work harder with less. Georgia ranks among the top 10 states with he highest poverty rates for K-1 students. Ending generational cycles of poverty will take 21st century tech that can deliver on broader educational goals and more positive outcomes. Du Bois asked OneScreen to be their partner in creating a future that works for everyone.

The Solution

The teachers of Du Bois Integrity Academy didn’t have the luxury of taking time off for training. They needed intuitive software and tech that just worked from day one. Our sales team evaluated their needs and recommended the OneScreen Canvas.

This touchscreen whiteboard is ready to go to work straight out of the box. With touch capability for up to 10 10 eager fingers or pens at once, the Canvas brings an entire classroom into focus around motivational themes, with all the intensity of 1.07 billion colors on a 4K Ultra HD display and a 60Hz refresh rate.

Teachers maintained command and control of their lessons from a web-based dashboard on any mobile device. Du Bois administrators were able to put everything in place at a price low enough to y through layers of approval for publicly funded school materials.

The Results

Once the teachers and staff installed 38 Canvas whiteboards in classrooms through the campus, students immediately gained access to interactive displays, pre-built web-based lessons, Common Core practicums and tools, and the confidence that comes from world-class learning.

Retired US Air Force Lieutenant Deatrix (Dee) Morris, who sits on the board at Du Bois Integrity Academy, said, “We’ve paid careful attention to the volumes of research available on how STEM-focused schools increase educational equity and quality for ALL students regardless of their race and socio-economic status. We believe a lack of money should not equate to to a lack of opportunity.” Now, with dedicated educators and world-class learning equipment in the classroom, these kids will not be shut out of a brighter future. The lessons they learn here about themselves most of all will be integral to their success as they grow into leadership roles across the nation.

We operate under tremendous pressure to prove ourselves on the ground every day, helping kids from all sorts of backgrounds discover that they can learn more and achieve more than they ever thought possible. The entire world is right outside our door and it’s up to us to make sure these child children understand how important they are in the big picture.

    OneScreen Canvas has been a huge success here at the Boys and Girls Club. The touchscreen allows images from the computer to be displayed and available for interaction with the students. It can be modified on the screen and its touchscreen feature allows teachers to run programs directly from the screen. It can easily accommodate different learning styles from marking on the board to having a discussion, or simply having that visual component right in front of the student.

    Your excellent teaching skills and courteous personality has helped us tremendously through our training session. Without your helpfulness and directness, using OneScreen would have been more challenging. We appreciate you being stern and letting us know what we are doing wrong along with giving us ways we can correct our mistakes. It is comforting to know that whenever we have a question you answer right away, which you know is all the time. We like that you refer to your personal work-related situations as examples when teaching a lesson. We have learned so much from you and we look forward to learning more. Thank you for being a remarkable instructor and we are very grateful to have you as instructor.

    It was a pleasure working with Kevin Wong and his staff in making this purchase. My co-worker and I had a training session with Adil and he helped us understand how to best utilize the capabilities of the OneScreen. I know that the longer we have the technology in our classroom, the more we will utilize the many features of the OneScreen.

    Although the training did meet my basic expectations but it could be even better if more in-depth details were provided regarding the OneScreen. As far as the price is concerned a lot of other features can be added in the OneScreen product that will further enhance the customer experience. Furthermore, with the help of your team and our support staff, we were better able to resolve our technical queries quickly. The smartboard product is great and as we continue using the OneScreen, we're gaining familiarity.

    Just a note to say thank you for our recent session with the OneScreen. You provided an excellent overview of the software which I found very helpful in rolling out our new interactive boards. I especially appreciated your helpful email with the diagram that explained how to connect the laptop to the OneScreen and how patient you were when answering my questions. While our teachers are just getting started, I already see teachers projecting notes for their class, they love having the ability to just pop in their flash drives. So easy! Teachers are playing videos for instruction and using the annotate software for class notes and collaboration, and using the features for math and science, like the Periodic Table. I look for the usage to improve and expand after you have sessions with both our elementary and middle level teachers. Overall, it is really helping us grow.

    Onescreen is awesome! I use it for my livestreams, course creation process and to teach my students to leverage all things related to digital marketing. The Screen Skills support team helped me learn all software. If you are in the market for touchscreen TV, Onescreen is the way to go!

    I just wanted to take the time to express my appreciation for Farhan's detailed training session on OneScreen Annotate software.  Bamberg School District has used many software’s with our interactive devices, but the Annotate software has features that far exceed the capabilities of the others that we have tried and are still using.  The features such as annotation on a live web page, deletion of images features, image sizing and numerous other features make this product one of the best that I have ever evaluated. Thanks!

    Thank you for the wonderful training that you conducted for 13 faculty members. Everyone enjoyed the presentation and when I sent follow-up questions at a later date, you got back to me pronto. We are using the OneScreen hubware for our nursing students in classes and your software for micro, chemistry and A&P. Also several students are using it on their laptops for group study sessions right outside the classrooms. We are impressed with the software. Thank you sir.
