"AVer educational solutions"
have improved our learning process on so many levels. Personally, now I have a lot more opportunities for creativity and interaction with students.”
- teacher Sanja Maričević, Elementary School Izidor Kršnjavi, Croatia
Izidor Kršnjavi elementary school is located in the Croatian capital city, Zagreb. Their students are regularly among the most successful in various regional, national and international competitions, and it is regarded as the top school in Croatia.
As a part of a national project called E-Schools, which aims to establish a system to develop digitally mature schools by evaluating the application of ICT (information and communication technology) in education and business processes in schools, Izdior Kršnjavi was the first chosen to be equipped with multimedia equipment including tablets, charge carts, projectors, sound systems, video conferencing systems, document cameras and other devices.
AVer’s Intelligent Education Solution Rocks Croatian Classrooms
AVer’s CC30 USB classroom camera, C30i charge cart, and F17HD+ visualizer (document camera) have enhanced teaching efficiency at Izdior Kršnjavi.
The CC30 USB classroom camera makes a variety of activities far more accessible than otherwise possible, including communicating with schools in other cities, virtual visits to museums, guest lectures, and distance learning. It also helps the students have entertaining, educational and thrilling video calls with Dalmatia elementary school*.
Izdior Kršnjavi has also benefited greatly from AVer’s C30i charge cart. The C30i provides a very simple, efficient, and secure way to store and charge 25 tablets in a classroom, making it practical for them to be used regularly and bringing revolutionary changes to the way students are taught. The C30i’s mobility is a big plus, as teachers are able to conveniently move it between classrooms.
AVer’s F17HD+ visualizer (document camera) has also proven to be an indispensable part of the learning process at Izdior Kršnjavi. For example, in natural science class, teachers can easily show the whole class leaves, stems of plants, and small insects, immersing everyone in the lesson and attaining better understanding of the subject matter in less time. During mathematics and especially geometry class, teachers draw on paper under the camera instead of writing on the board. Even in art class the teacher uses the document camera to compare and comment on students’ work, creating a greater sense of participation as every student has a chance to shine. The visualizer’s recording function is of course also invaluable for teachers when they prepare materials for class.
Teacher Sanja Maričević said, “I'm really thankful that I had the opportunity to participate in this educational digitization project, because I believe that it is necessary to introduce new technologies in the learning process.”
