SEOUL, Sept. 20 (Korea Bizwire) — Singapore Korean International School has chosen to install Samsung Flip, an interactive whiteboard developed by Samsung Electronics, in its classrooms.
According to Samsung Electronics, the school decided to adopt the Flip because of its capacity to connect education information with smartphone devices, allowing for improved communications between students and teachers.
Having first opened its doors in 1993, the Singapore Korean International School has been accredited by the governments of South Korea and Singapore.
Currently, 450 students in the pre-school, primary, middle and high school levels study at the institution, which has been lauded for its innovative educational system that stresses a creative and interdisciplinary approach to learning.
In the school’s classrooms, library and labs, the Samsung Flip is being used to help students with the learning process.
The Flip, with help from its 55-inch ultra-high definition display screen and multi-use pen function, makes it possible for images and videos to be conveniently retrieved from smartphones and tablet PCs thanks to a mirroring function.
Notes taken down in class can be shared with other students immediately via email or cloud software, lessening the burden for students to jot down everything in class, and enabling them to concentrate on the material itself.
Dr. Kim Soung O, the principal of the institution, said that the school decided to install the Flip in order to create a digitally enhanced educational environment for students.
“Students are able to make good use of the various functions that the device offers,” said Kim.
