Samsung’s Smart School program has helped connect elementary students from Portugal and South Korea using its video conferencing and virtual reality technologies. Samsung launched its Smart School program in Portugal in 2013, and has quickly expanded it to 13 smart classrooms.
The South Korean technology giant has been trying to improve education for disadvantaged students by helping to bridge IT accessibility gap in classrooms. Samsung used its teleconferencing devices, tablets, and the Gear 360 virtual reality camera in its Smart School setup to connect kids who live eight time zones apart from each other. The program has also helped classes achieve a 100 percent success rate and increased the enrolment number.
