Wynnewood, PA (May 20, 2010) - Allen Independent School District (Allen ISD) Allen, TX, is now able to manage all of its digital resources and to increase instructional value in the classroom through the integration of Pathways SM, a SAFARI Montage module that enables districts to control, manage and schedule classroom devices easily within one common interface. The implementation of Pathways SM allows educators to seamlessly integrate high-quality videos, images and other digital media into the curriculum to facilitate district-wide visual learning.
Allen ISD is comprised of 20 schools serving more than 18,000 students in grades K-12. It was essential for the administration at Allen ISD to implement a technology solution that would support teachers with their digital lesson plans, engage today’s students in learning and deliver Professional Development and Superintendent messages cost-effectively.
According to David Spann, Director of Technology, Allen ISD, “It goes without saying that today’s students are engaged with digital media – it surrounds them everywhere, all the time. Therefore, it is critical for us to provide teachers with the tools and resources to maximize the educational technologies they use in the classroom every day.”
Allen ISD decided to upgrade its legacy SAFARI Video Networks Pathways system through the Texas regional systems integrator, Delcom Group, to today’s more comprehensive Pathways SM solution for its increased functionality, ability to perform All-Call, better management capabilities and greater reporting resources.
“It was crucial to have a reliable and easy-to-use technology solution in place that would support instructional objectives and enable visual teaching district-wide,” states Norma Williammee, Account Executive of SAFARI Montage, “and Allen ISD leadership vision is the driving force.”
