Christian Brothers College in Fremantle is moving towards a paperless education environment thanks to a Panasonic electronic whiteboard solution form Panasonic Australia , won as part of last year’s TOYOTA AFL Dream Team competition.
Student, Patrick Mirosevich, was awarded the runner-up prize of a Panasonic UB-T880 electronic whiteboard and a Panasonic PT-ST10 short throw projector for his school in the competition last December.
According to Andre Leicester, Head of Mathematics at Christian Brothers College, the school chose to install the new whiteboard and projector solution in a dedicated maths classroom to allow all teachers the opportunity to use it on a weekly basis for scheduled lessons. He also noted that the technology had allowed the school to move closer towards being a paperless environment.
The Panasonic UB-T880 (77-inch) electronic whiteboards feature multi-touch operations which allow the panaboards to be used by up to three students at once, encouraging more students to get involved during lessons. The touch screen operation also allows for dynamic image control so images can be easily moved, scaled or rotated with the fingers or the electronic pen. The durable and long lasting multi-touch surface can be operated with a finger or the electronic pen, with all movements relayed directly to the board surface for smooth, seamless and comfortable operation.
The PT-ST10 short throw projectors can project an impressive 80-inch diagonal image from just 0.71 metres away from the board, allowing users to create large images in confined spaces. This is an ideal solution for classrooms and conference rooms. The Exclusive Daylight View Basic technology delivers sharp, clear images. They also feature a built-in ambient light sensor to measure ambient light and correct the image in real-time to project clear, crisp images even in brightly-lit rooms.
