August 26, 2010 – With the aim of Building Better Schools through Innovation, REDFOX Technologies joined the Adopt-A-School Program of the Department of Education by donating sets of REDFOX MultiLearner Station and InterActive Whiteboard to Quezon City High School at Kamuning, Quezon City.
This was made possible through REDFOX’s coordination with the Quezon City High School International Alumni Association (QCHSIAA) which donated part of the total equipment in the now-called QCHSIAA / REDFOX ICT Hub.
The event started with the ribbon cutting ceremony led by QCHS Principal Dr. Diego Amid, QCHSIAA ICT Coordinator Carmelita Villanueva, and CEO of REDFOX Technologies Inc. Andy Te. Special guests in the event include REDFOX General Manager John Macasio, Adopt a School and Technical Services Director of DepEd Mari Paul Soriano, and Microsoft Country Manager John Bessey
Demonstration of MultiLearner Stations and the InterActive Whiteboard was attended by all guests, officers from REDFOX and Microsoft, the press, and the teachers and students of Quezon City High School.
The REDFOX MultiLearner Station connects several monitors, keyboards, and mouse devices to only one CPU, while allowing 5, 7 or 10 users to work simultaneously and independently in each workstation. A USB hub fixed at the back of each monitor connects other components to the CPU. Each MultiLearner Station is powered by The Windows MultiPoint Server specially developed by Microsoft for this setup.
On the other hand, Interactive Whiteboard (IWB) is a board + projector device which promotes interactive classroom learning. It can be used in discussions, trainings and other purposes to view presentations and manipulate it directly through the whiteboard.
