Digital equipment becomes standard at Arsakeia-Tositseia Schools

Epson and the Arsakeio society for the Promotion of Education and learning

The Society for the Promotion of Education and Learning chooses Epson to equip Arsakeia-Tositseia Schools with the latest projectors for interactive lessons.

The Society for the Promotion of Education and Learning governs Arsakeia-Tositseia schools and was founded in 1836 as a non-profit welfare foundation. The society's five-school complex in Greece, the Greek-Albanian College in Tirana and Albania accommodate thousands of students of all educational levels.

The Society for the Promotion of Education and Learning always supports educational opportunities such as the programmes which have been integrated into each of its schools this year.

Between 2009 and 2010, Arsakeia-Tositseia schools created a digital programme by developing the e-arsakeio digital school. This uses the award-winning e-learning platform eFront; an integrated electronic learning management system which covers the entirety of primary to secondary education courses being taught to students at the Arsakeio schools. This allowed an interactive learning system to be developed.

In 2013 the Society for the Promotion of Education and Learning equipped its classrooms with new projectors and ink tank system printers that are compatible with its schools’ learning platform, as well as meeting the needs of students and teachers. Epson was chosen by tender after extensive research and testing for the supply of visual equipment – interactive projectors and high-brightness projectors – and part of the educational foundation’s printing needs specificially high-performance ink tank system printers.


 

Easier and more effective learning and presentation

The schools installed 56 EB-465i Interactive Ultra Short Throw projectors, 53 ΕΒ-460 Ultra Short Throw projectors, 43 EB-485Wi Interactive Ultra Short Throw projectors, one EH-TW480 projector, one EB-W16SK 3D projector and six L550 multifunctional ITS systems.

Epson’s EB-465i and EB-485Wi projectors were chosen because of their short throw projection (just 31cm), their long-life bulbs, which are required for extensive use on an everyday basis, their high colour and white light output (3,100 lumens) – necessary for bright classrooms – and the interaction that they offer. Participation in lessons and presentations increased, while notes were more easily and quickly distributed in electronic format to all participants, without having to use an old-fashioned whiteboard.

Enhanced productivity and participation

Epson projectors have been installed in almost all of the classrooms in the ten primary and eight secondary Arsakeia-Tositseia schools in Greece and Albania.

As part of its collaboration with the Society for the Promotion of Education and Learning, Epson has donated an ΕΒ-W16SK – a 3D passive projector system that delivers bright projections – which will be installed in one of the new technologically advanced laboratory classrooms in a school in Athens.

The L550 printers have been distributed to specific primary schools and lyceums in Athens, a secondary school in Patras and the primary school in Thessaloniki.

Epson projectors have made lessons fully interactive and more interesting for everyone. Students are now able to actively participate in shaping the course of lessons and see everything that they read in real time. In addition, the Epson projectors are fully compatible with the e-arsakeio lessons and the platform they use. At a mere $0.005/page or $2.50/500 pages, the L550 multifunctional printers deliver low-cost colour photocopies to meet the needs of classrooms or offices.
