NEC Display Solutions Europe is now working with Ministries of Education and schools as part of the Creative Classrooms Lab (CCL) project.
CCL is a two-year project funded by the European Commission’s Lifelong Learning Programme. It focuses on bringing together policy makers, teachers and technology suppliers to jointly develop tablet-based solutions for new learning methods.
NEC is providing all interested CCL pilot schools with a free license to use DisplayNote software, and is donating hardware to four CCL schools including ultra-short throw projectors and 65-inch touch displays. More than 20 schools in eight countries will be using the DisplayNote software with their tablets.
ICT vendors and other interested stakeholders can participate in the CCL project at their own expense as unfunded Associate Partners. Other partners include Samsung and Smart Technologies.
The project is coordinated by European Schoolnet, a network of 31 Ministries of Education in Europe.
Ulf Greiner (pictured), Product Line Manager for Business Projectors at NEC Display Solutions Europe, said: "With our long heritage in developing interactive display solutions for education, combined with our close relationship with DisplayNote, NEC is in an excellent position to assist in this scheme and furthermore complement the tablet-based scenarios with interactive technology also on the main screen. This provides maximum flexibility for the teacher."
