Keeping pupils engaged isn’t easy at the best of times. If they’re not absorbed in what they’re learning, they’ll often find something else that interests them instead.
With the help of Smarter Surfaces, however, you can revamp your learning environment in a way that will help to keep pupils engaged and stimulated. Our products transform walls and desks into wipe-clean writing and drawing surfaces, which your pupils can use to work collaboratively and simultaneously without few restrictions.
By applying Smarter Surfaces finishes to walls, desks and doors, the dimensions and productive potential of a classroom can be radically transformed. Our low-tech products can also help maximise the use of hi-tech equipment by opening up potential projection surfaces and even magnetising certain parts of the room.
Teachers love using our products, as they can help create a better learning environment in a cost-effectiveness and straightforward way. Students love them because they’re both fun and productive.
According to one user at the Waterford Institute of Technology in south-east Ireland, “We use Smart Wall Paint as an alternate solution to whiteboards, which has additional side benefits. It does exactly what it says on the tin. We found it to be an excellent product, which fills all available space. It provides a much larger writing area, creating a fantastic working space for the teaching environment.”
A representative of Highgate School in London, meanwhile, comments that, “The pupils were immediately engaged with this new phenomenon. This has really allowed us to maximise the use and potential of our classroom spaces. The Smart Wall Paint has also proven very useful in our department staff area too, with to-do lists and notices popping up on the walls.”
Our most popular products currently seeing use in educational environments include:
Our award-winning Smart Wall Paint can transform classrooms, corridors and other areas into interactive spaces in which students can write and draw freely, without the boundaries of a notebook or sheet of paper and with the ability to easily erase mistakes.
Many teachers have applied our whiteboard paint to the desks in their classroom, making them an ideal canvas for all manner of daily classroom activities.
Smarter Surfaces’ Magnetic Paint can be used to create wall spaces that are perfect for planning and brainstorming sessions with your students, posting examples and organising themed displays.
This paint allows you to apply a projection surface of any size to the walls within your classroom – great for viewing documentaries, films and online video. It can also be used in conjunction with our Smart Wall Paint to create a multi-purpose magnetic whiteboard surface that will help bring interactive games and activities to life.
These multi-use disposable whiteboard sheets are not only cost effective, but also quick and easy to use. Replacing traditional flipcharts and wheeled whiteboards, they can be stuck to any smooth surface without the need for adhesive material or thumb tacks. Perfect for group meetings, workshops or teaching in locations outside the classroom.
If you’re interested in witnessing what our innovative products can do in person, members of the Teach Design initiative have kindly agreed to demonstrate the products in 12 schools across the country.
