The Alternative School for Math and Science (ASMS) announced today that it is preparing for a major new digital learning initiative to be launched at the start of the 2014-2015 school year. With the integration of a full Samsung School digital learning solution, ASMS will be able to bring its interactive, collaborative learning model to a whole new level of excellence.
Samsung and Corning Incorporated, who share a long-standing partnership in the development of display technologies, are partnering to provide the most advanced technology for today’s education. Included in the full technology package are Samsung Galaxy tablets for all faculty and students, interactive whiteboard displays for each classroom, wireless printers, and the Samsung School software enabling real-time instruction and interaction. Installation of the system is currently underway, with full implementation planned for September 2014.
