One of the greatest benefits of spending over $100m for a new High School in Franklin, MA is the fact that the new facility solves a major problem that plagued the old one: outdated technology and a physical plant completely unable to support modernization. The new High School is literally packed with computers and other high tech devices. What’s even better is that it has the physical design and modern wiring and ventilation needed to use that technology to its full advantage in educating students.
NEC Displays in every classroom
The amount of technology evident at the new Franklin High School is truly impressive. Each classroom has wi-fi and uses a NEC Display interactive white board.
These sync with the Chromebooks each student has been issued by the school.
The Display’s software is a collaboration platform allowing teachers and students to present, work together on and share content in real time during class or anytime via stored content on the Cloud. Sure beats an overhead projector!
