GAFE Compatible Technology that Ignites Learning

Elmsford Union Free School District is dedicated to providing excellence and optimizing teaching and learning for student achievement. The District covers three schools and over one thousand students from Pre-K to 12th grade.

Challenge

Elmsford UFSD wanted new interactive displays that would be brighter than the projectors they were replacing. As the whole district transitioned to Google Classroom, and a Google Apps for Education (GAFE) school district, the Technology team looked for a solution that was compatible with Google Chromebooks, Chromebox, and GAFE. The solution they chose also needed to be intuitive and easy for teachers to use without much training, so the two technicians for the department could still easily manage and assist all of the educators and teachers across all three campuses.

Solution

Several TRUTOUCH interactive displays were installed in the Elmsford Union Free School District. The backlit LED touchscreen provides the sharpest and clearest image, which outshines projectors and helps ignite inspiration in the classroom. Their non-propiretary nature easily allows them to be compatible for any learning program, from Windows and Microsoft, to the rull range of Google’s education innovations. With the TRUTOUCH’s built-in Android whiteboarding system, teachers can directly annotate over any program or Google App.

Results

The ease of use and intuitive nature of the TRUTOUCH interactive displays made it easy for anyone to walk up and instantly start using the fast responding multi-touch display. Connected to Google Classroom and Google Drive, teachers have access anywhere to their materials and can make changes from home for the next day’s class. Newline’s technical support team and online knowledgebase gave educators plenty of assistance and video tutorials, allowing the Elmsford Technology department to be able to easily cover all of their classrooms and make sure all teachers could integrate the TRUTOUCH displays into their lectures.
