Samsung has announced the opening of a Digital Classroom at The Prince’s Trust Kennington Centre.
Samsung’s Digital Classroom intends to enhance Prince’s Trust programmes running at the Kennington Centre and aims to improve young people’s exposure to the latest digital technology, helping them to advance in school and also in the future job market.
This is part of a wider strategic aim at The Prince’s Trust to embed digital and STEM skills across its programmes.
Samsung Digital Classrooms offer an engaging and collaborative educational environment for nurturing future talent. A suite of Samsung technology will be provided along with teacher training, connectivity and maintenance support to the centre. This enables not only creative teacher–led learning but also increased peer-to-peer interaction through device mobility.
