In total, Prowise and its partner Media Service België may install 1500 touchscreens in the Belgian capital for the next 3 years. The invitation to tender, issued by i-City, the technological partner of the City of Brussels, is seen as a prestigious project in the sector. Price, quality, included software, after-sales support, warranty conditions, training opportunities and CSR were decisive factors in the choice for the Prowise solution. In addition to the delivery of the hardware, Media Service België and Prowise will also provide various training sessions. On a technical and didactic level, the end users are guided to get the most out of the new digital learning opportunities. The hardware and software, for example, are extremely suitable to enable ‘distance learning’.
The touchscreens of the Dutch market leader Prowise are used by almost a million teachers and students in 26 different countries worldwide. The touchscreens are being developed entirely in-house, allowing the screens to excel in pre-installed educational software, privacy and security and ease of use for both teacher and student. With the included software the class can start an interactive math race, create a digital mindmap, play an educational quiz, enjoy game based learning and ‘stream’ content from a device on the big screen for a joint discussion.
“This tender is a major step in the conquest of the Belgian market. We are enormously proud that a big city like Brussels has made a long commitment to us. Especially now, education needs smart, reliable and secure digital learning tools to keep the quality of education at a high level. By developing our own products we are able to set a new standard for privacy and security within classroom technology. Together with Media Service België we will make sure that students in Brussels can enjoy their educational experience in a safe and meaningful environment”, said Prowise director Michael Ahrens.
