  • Stage 1 of the project – 11 classrooms, digitalised with EWIS Smart Classroom Solution
  • One of the first international schools to use digital technology for teaching

The revolutionary interactive based education methodology has now enthralled AIS, with the launch of smart classrooms. 

The EWIS smart classroom solution was launched at Asian International School recently with pomp and flair. A total of 11 classrooms were transformed by the school which included all Grade 6, Grade 7, Grade 8, the Audio-Visual Room and the Art Room – giving students of AIS the opportunity to learn daily programs the ‘fun’ way using state-of-the-art interactive board coupled with most current interactive educational software.

“In today’s millennial era, the world is shrinking, and the academic and professional dynamics are changing. Keeping pace with this change means embracing digitisation and technology. At AIS, we want our students to be ready and grab opportunities the world has to offer, and we felt that the EWIS Smart Classroom technology provides that platform we seek, to ensure our students have an edge over the rest of the world,” stated Asian International School Principal Harshana Perera.

This all new Smart Interactive Display, which is the foundation of smart classrooms, was installed and facilitated by E-W Information Systems Ltd., a pioneer within Sri Lanka’s ICT industry. This Smart Interactive Display is said to be able to co-exist with the traditional whiteboard or blackboard, transforming the way teachers educate students in a classroom in addition to providing a better and more interactive, learning experience for the students.

“The EWIS Smart Interactive Display and the relevant components with the aid of interactive software and tools would enable the teachers to deliver their lessons in an efficient and interactive manner,” commented E-W Information Systems Chief Operating Officer Nirmal Pieris. “The students would benefit from having access to the online libraries and where they themselves could interact and learn various topics and lesson using the Smart Interactive Display which is positioned between the existing magi boards in the classroom. This introduction of technology in the classroom would certainly boost the levels of attention and engagement thus pave way for the auditory, visual and kinaesthetic learner to get the best possible outcome when being examined,” Pieris further commented. 

The EWIS Smart Interactive Display combines the features of a Smart Television and a Computer. The main features include the 10 Finger Multi Point Touch Facility, with a superior resolution which has the capacity to even play Ultra High Definition videos and multiple ports which can be utilised to connect external displays or storage devices. Based on the customer preference; the device can be provided in three screen sizes (65”, 75” and 85”). 

Since it made its foray into the IT industry by paving the landscape for IT products and services which were relatively new to Sri Lanka, EWIS continues to revolutionise and transform the industry with a reputation for reliability, quality of solutions, teacher training, support services and unparalleled dedication in ensuring customer satisfaction. Over the years, the company continues to integrate its existing processes and enhance value creation across all its businesses as a total IT solutions provider based on its corporate philosophy of being a total IT solutions company, maintaining sincere and strong business relationships to ensure unmatched service standards and most importantly, a passionate and proud Sri Lankan organisation aiming to take education to the next level.
