Hall County Schools - Education
Hall County Schools

The Hall County School has embraced new, collaborative technologies in its classrooms. Through this approach, their students will thrive in the new economy of the 21st century.

Challenge

The Challenges : What were Hall County Schools’ Challenges and needs?

The Academies of Discovery are part of the Hall County school system in Georgia, which supports 27,000 K-12 students across 33 schools. With the vision of transforming the traditional learning environment, the Academies focus on problem-based study and applying classroom learning to real-life situations and goals.

Immense diversity of devices poses the problem of solitary learning

The Academies’ Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy has resulted in a diverse set of devices and systems being brought to school by 75% of the student body. This posed a significant challenge to the schools' collaborative learning environment, which needed to foster interaction, rather than work in individual silos.

The issue of individuated students working alone on separate screens

Hall County schools sought to create a place within the Academies where students could gather to work together on a single, large screen. In order to do this, they had to incorporate several large-format displays throughout the Academies’ 96 classrooms and their Learning Commons.

Solution

SAMSUNG Solutions : What are the Key Benefits of Samsung Displays?

To solve the challenge of integrating students' diverse devices with large-screen displays for group collaboration, Hall County schools chose Samsung LED digital signage. Samsung displays were chosen for their exceptional picture quality, the range of interactive solutions available and the displays' cost-saving, energy-efficiency. Hall County schools were also familiar with Samsung displays from their success on a previous Lanier Charter Career Academy project.

Result
