Putaruru College Celebrates Edtech Success
Putaruru College is located in the Waikato Region of New Zealand’s North Island, and is home to around 410 year 7-13 students. Putaruru College staff were well aware of the benefits that technology can bring, but as a low-decile centre they didn’t have the budget to make large investments to modernise their classrooms. The college were relying on dated Chromebooks which they felt were hindering learning, particularly in film classes where students were working on video creation.
Putaruru College staff felt that the Promethean ActivPanel would suit their needs as they were looking for a flexible hardware and software package that could support learning across the curriculum. The effort put in by staff and students saw Promethean Case Studies ANZ Grant Winners them win an ActivPanel, which they decided to place in the library so that everyone would have a chance to use it.
