The Flint Cultural Center Academy (FCCA) in Michigan is a technology-focused K-8 charter school that shares a multi-purpose campus with a museum and cultural center. To foster engagement and adoption, the FCCA replaced existing Miracast dongles with ScreenBeam 1000 EDU and 1100 Plus devices in classrooms and meeting spaces throughout the campus. This change created the flexible learning environments required to address a wide array of use cases and was easy to provision, manage and adopt.
“It had become a constant battle with the consumer-grade dongles. This experience ruined the vision for the teachers to be dynamic within the classroom.”
Systems Administrator, Ryan Castiglione,
“Learning to use ScreenBeam was easy, and I picked it up on my first try. The kids found it easy as well and they all know how to press CTRL+K.”
Chelsey Nolan, Principal FCCA
“We had massive interference between each room and couldn’t share video to the displays. It became frustrating for the teachers, causing them to give up and revert to USB connections. Once we recognized the limitations of the solution, it prompted us to look at enterprise-grade solutions.”
Director of Technology, Todd Tiffany, FCCA
