With the proven benefits of advanced audiovisual technologies in the classroom, including increased test scores and interactivity, Principal Russ Brown wanted to bring these results to his campus. He heads Pemayetv Emahakv Charter School, located on the Brighton Seminole Reservation in Glades County, Fla.
The K-8 campus opened in August 2007 and today teaches 233 students. Founded by the Seminole Tribe in order to maintain the tribe’s cultural identity with future generations, Pemayetv Emahakv fills its curriculum with Seminole culture, language, and arts and crafts classes.
“Our motto here at school is to build successful leaders today, so that they can be unconquered leaders tomorrow,” says Brown. “When we can incorporate experiences of everyday life here at school, it makes assignments more interesting for the students. It also helps to keep them focused longer as they learn new lessons,” he adds.
Today, advanced audiovisual technology can be found in every classroom at Pemayetv Emahakv. The school’s cutting-edge solution focuses on the implementation of SMART interactive whiteboards, Elmo document cameras and high lumens XGA projectors from Dukane and Vivitek. SMART wireless slates, as well as the SMART Response system, were introduced into the curriculum as well.
