How and why one school upgraded all of their classrooms with new technology.  With their projects and Smartboards hitting the end of their lifecycle, Gann set out to reimagine the classroom technology. The key goals were flexibility, unchaining the teacher from the front of the classroom and taking advantage of BYOD. The solution is a combination of wireless projection, teacher 2 in 1 tablets with a digital pen, and Office 365.
