Interactive Flat Panels
In April 2015 LSF has installed 3 interactive flat panels from the SMARTboard range. This investment is part of an educational and excellence initiative undertaken by the school and will continue in 2016 with the purchase of further panels.
These new interactive flat panels, already present in 80% of British classrooms – as opposed to a mere 8% in France – are totally innovative in their interactive and multimedia approach. Students unanimously agree that they clearly provide an added value in terms of interaction, dynamism and add variety to the media used in class. Classes now include the use of the latest multimedia resources which promote oral comprehension, production and interaction.
LSF teachers have followed a specific training course in order to master the use of these new panels and to help them create new teaching materials, activities and games.
