Samsung continues to find ways to creatively engage students in the school as it partners with the Philippine Science High School- Southern Mindanao Campus in putting up the first SMART Classroom in Mindanao, and second in the Philippines. The establishment of the SMART Classroom is a response to both Samsung and PSHSSMC's desire to effectively incorporate technology in the classroom and to take another step towards building a learning platform that will empower teachers to deliver instructions through an interactive learning environment. The classroom will feature two units of 65-inch interactive whiteboard and 30 units of Samsung Galaxy tablets.
The launching of the Samsung SMART Classroom will be on December 11, 2015, 10:00 AM at the Philippine Science High School Southern Mindanao Campus, Sto. Nino, Tugbok District, Davao City. The expected guests will include Samsung Electronics Philippines Corporation's President and CEO, Mr. Chung Lyong Lee, Samsung Electronics Philippines Corporation's Head of Public Affairs, Ms. Arlita Tayko-Narag, PSHS Foundation Inc., Executive Director, Ms. Linda Cordova, Department of Science and Technology Region XI Director, Dr. Anthony Sales and PSHS System Executive Director,
Dr. Larry Cabatic. The launching will also feature a demonstration of how the SMART Classroom works to students, teachers and staff of the school.
