We visited the Hämeenkylä secondary school on October 26th 2017.

The school uses the TravelMate B118 laptops in the Math class. The test group has given very good feedback. They say that combining the device into the studies has improved the concentration of the students and the results are better than before. Furthermore, students have more courage to try more difficult math calculations as TravelMate B118 offers a new way of learning, deeper and more focused than before.

We interviewed the test group and they were really happy with the device: they told that it’s easier to magnify the current calculation to ease the concentration on that. Making an example, also if they draw a simple line, the device helps it to be straight and no ruler is needed: this fastens and makes easier the learning process.

It was amazing to see that the room with 75 7th grade students had a really low noise level, because everyone was studying. One of the greatest aspects is that the new technology and learning environment also give teachers the chance to discover new ways of teaching, making it more innovative and helping them to better organize their work and their effort.

The Hämeenkylä secondary school teaching staff was so glad to have Acer as partner in this pilot project that they can’t wait to share this partnership when they get visitors from other schools and municipalities.

Below you can see a few pictures from the math class we visited.
