The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Costa Rica has the first two digital classrooms in Central America and the Caribbean, at the Lyceum Julio Fonseca School in La Uruca and the other is in IEGB Yanuario Quesada School in San Rafael de Escazú, as part of the “Smart School”.
This program gives teachers the ability to provide interactive lessons and group activities in real time, through a Smart TV that is equipped with special features that allows you to share content, text, images, and other tasks.
Students benefit from the digital classroom by being able to receive and share notes and the topics covered in class and maintain a more direct communication with teachers’ tablets, which will allows them to make quizzes, surveys, and send and receive support material, allowing more activities faster.
According to Mario Mora Quirós, Deputy Minister of Institutional Planning and Regional Coordination of the Ministry of Public Education (MEP), these are the first virtual classrooms in Central America, contributing to the strategic guidelines established by the MEP to bring innovation to educate students.
The innovative project “Smart School” is currently being developed in Panama, Costa Rica and Nicaragua, and is expected to expand to other countries in the region soon.
