T-Systems: Individual student development with digital tools

 

Which tools do you need in today’s classrooms to teach children the skills they will need tomorrow? This summer, T-Systems Hungary launched a nationwide “Modern School Program” using Legamaster solutions to answer that question and help schools with the digital transformation. This enables teachers to focus on the individual student development and optimally prepare the students for the challenges of the digital age.

First digital classroom

In September 2019, T-Systems Hungary installed the first digital classroom at the St. Nicholas Greek Catholic School in Edelény. The classroom is equipped with an ETX e-screen from Legamaster in combination with the Display Note software and Samsung tablets. On the ETX e-screen with touch functionality, the teacher can write, draw and display the teaching materials to the entire class. If needed, the teachers and students can also easily share their tablet screens using the Legamaster AirServer Connect.

"The digital classrooms are a great concept to bring
the latest technologies to schools of any size."

“We are very happy to partner with T-Systems Hungary in this project. The digital classrooms are a great concept to bring the latest technologies to schools of any size and we are looking forward to equipping more digital classrooms with the Legamaster solutions in the future,” comments Gábor Herzcog, Managing Director at Stiefel Interactive Ltd., Legamaster’s distribution partner in Hungary.

New teaching tools

“Classic teaching tools like drawing and writing on a blackboard improve motor skills and eye-hand coordination, but it is no longer possible to engage children. We must constantly find new ways to reach them," says József Barta, Head of the Edelényi school. He believes that with the advent of the digital world, knowledge in mathematics, science, technology and information technology is becoming increasingly important. Therefore, he is continuously searching for new teaching tools that can strengthen the students’ knowledge base.

Responsive learning environment

“Advanced technology is increasingly becoming a part of everyday life in schools. That’s why it is essential to create a learning environment that is responsive to today's times and the accelerated technological revolution,” said Zoltán Kaszás, CEO of T-Systems Hungary.

"It is essential to create a learning environment that is responsive to today's times."

At the St. Nicholas Greek Catholic School, the digital classroom is very popular with teachers, because they have already experienced how much the new tools help them to do their job more efficiently and effectively. "In addition to mastering algorithmic thinking and applied mathematics, following classes in the digital classroom improves the children's cooperative skills while fostering horizontal learning, and it gives students a taste of project-based work," says József Barta.
