Boxlight’s original 5-year, district-wide contract was a key component of Atlanta Public School’s quest to increase student engagement and accelerate learning by equipping classrooms with a transformational 21st Century Learning Environment designed to improve “The Four C’s”: critical thinking, creativity, communication and collaboration. Atlanta Public Schools selected Boxlight as the vendor of choice for all middle and high schools because of their award-winning educational presentation and collaboration software, along with superior hardware and integration.
