How the digital school encourages self-education
An educational center of a new type has opened in Kemerovo city recently. The digital school in Lesnaya Polyana invited more than a thousand children to its classes. The school uses the latest digital technologies and modern equipment to educate a new generation of children. Among the innovations are touch kiosks, multimedia devices, and digital laboratories for natural sciences studying and research.
To make children adopt new knowledge and skills better, the school needed an interactive system that allows learners to find the information independently. Touch Systems developers proposed an effective solution. Relying on TouchInform: Navigator software and digital kiosks, they built the Interactive guide on the Kuzbass region. The system contains historical and geographical data and other interesting information on the area and its local towns.
How the Interactive guide works
The school has launched an Interactive guide to involve children in self-education. The project uses touch kiosks, special software, and a video wall to present all the information to a large audience.
The software part of the solution displays the map of the Kemerovo region and allows one to explore any locality on its territory. In addition, one can get an information card on the chosen city with place descriptions, historical references, and a sightseeing video. All the data is broadcasted simultaneously on the interactive kiosks and video wall.
The scholars and their parents are interested in innovative learning with game elements. For example, at the school opening, they enjoyed digital kiosks to watch interesting videos about their environments and learn the history of their city.
