The installations are part of Moscow’s drive to invest in cutting edge infrastructure for its "digital natives"
The City of Moscow is installing customised interactive flat panels from NetDragon in 7,600 classrooms across the city as part of its smart city initiative. As a result, more than 14,500 educators throughout Moscow will be able to engage students using the latest advancements in interactive digital technologies designed for modern classrooms.
The network community builder developed a best-in-class interactive flat panel display tailored to the specific needs of Moscow’s teachers with customised features and user experience.
Moscow selected technology from Promethean, a NetDragon subsidiary and interactive technologies for education provider, as its preferred solution for its schools.
The new interactive flat panel display called the Irbis by Promethean panel, features vivid 4K resolution and enables up to 20 simultaneous touches for small group activities. In addition, the 86-inch panel will set a new standard for interactive display surface touch and writing experiences, NetDragon claims. Incorporating InGlass touch and writing technology it offers a naturally smooth writing experience with no script-lag or response delays.
The project will form part of a broader system-wide, digital learning environment and will be deployed across over 1,500 school buildings in the City of Moscow.
Each Irbis by Promethean panel will act as an integrated, all-in-one platform for Moscow teachers that will provide access to teaching tools including curated digital teaching resources and content, interactive lesson-building software, an internet browser, and a bespoke digital lesson-delivery platform. Installation will begin later this month and will be completed before the end of 2017.
“Our children are digital natives so technology is the key to untap their full potential. Making school environments more playful and interactive is an essential part of our ‘Moscow digital school’ programme launched last year,” said Artyom Ermolaev, CIO of Moscow and head of City of Moscow IT Department.
“In the next few years, we will keep investing in cutting edge digital infrastructure for our public schools – and we are honoured that this is a global effort with leading technology companies like NetDragon being part of it.”
