Ballon National School, Co Carlow
We have recently upgraded to Donview Boards in all 11 classrooms in our school. They are very popular with teachers and pupils and I would recommend them to any school wishing to invest in technology.

I am a Senior Infant teacher with the responsibility for IT in St Attracta’s Junior School in Dublin. Recently we changed our Promethean Whiteboards for Donview screens. SPSolutions installed 12 Donview screens. The staff are delighted with the new technology as the screens are clear and we do not have to pull down blinds to see them. The touch screen feature is fantastic and a number of children can practice letter & numeral formation at a time. The in-built computer allows immediate access to the internet, resources and files. I hated having to link my laptop to the whiteboard each morning and wait for the projector to warm up or cool down. We hope to reduce our maintenance cost as the other boards and projectors had to be cleaned yearly as well as replacing bulbs. SPSolutions have been extremely supportive and have provided excellent service when we required it. They have always tried to solve any IT issues quickly and with a smile.

This year we moved from a genee powerboard to a Donview 75 “interactive flatscreen. Our senior class teacher really enjoyed using the board during the two week trial and commented on its ease of use. Particularly the fact that it didn’t need to be connected to the laptop to operate the software or the apps. Overall we are very happy with this board so far!’

The Donview board has made a massive impact on teaching and learning in our school. Students get to interact by just using their finger. Up to 10 students at one time can come to the board. For senior Biology students have been able to see human anatomy in 3D mode, a massive advantage into their learning. Apps such as “Human” allows students to explore all the systems in the human body. From a teachers perspective, the Donview board has made life so easy. No laptop, no time delay before each class. I simply just have to press a button and all my resources, internet etc. are there. I would highly recommend the Donview board.

My name is Sinead Moore and I’m a teacher in 6th class in Askea Boys School. I had the Donview Interactive Screen at the end of last school year. I just wanted to write an email to say how fantastic it was and thank you for the trial. The picture was exceptional and the colours were crystal clear, which is not always the case with projectors and whiteboards. Having no cables and wires was great as I always find there are too many cables which need to be connected. Being able to cast directly onto the screen from my phone was another great feature. The touch screen was easy to use and it was a great advantage being able to have two people touch it at the same time. My class were so engaged in learning the weeks which I had the screen. It was a great resource and I hope this resource will be in all classrooms in the near future.

The Donview Smartboards are a remarkable upgrade from the Interactive Whiteboards of before in terms of resources, picture display, maintenance etc. A very good service is provided by SPSolutions both at the initial stage and at any follow up stage requested by the school.

We have been dealing with SPSolutions for many years. They previously serviced our Promethean Interactive Boards & over the past two years we have replaced them with Donview Interactive Screens in all of our classrooms. The team at SPSolutions provide an excellent service & when contacted with queries or technical issues they deal with the matter in a most prompt & efficient manner often providing same day service

A delight to use. No more darkening the room to use the board. The children can work at the same time the board is on. No more expensive projector bulb replacement and maintenance costs.

My name is Tom Percy, principal of Scoil Mhichil Naofa, Galmoy, Co Kilkenny. We recently purchased a 65″ Donview Interactive Board from SPSolutions. I am extremely happy with the picture quality as it’s fully HD. In essence it is similar to a 65″ Microsoft Surface as it runs a Windows based operating system. Microsoft Office comes as standard and this is extremely useful in presenting slideshows, homework etc. In addition it has fully interactive software loaded onto it which is very user friendly. As a teacher who is passionate about teaching coding, this interactive whiteboard is perfect. We use it especially for Lego WeDo and Crumble (Redfern Electronics). There is also the option of attaching an Android Player which is something I may explore into the future. There are plenty of connection ports available at each side of the board which make connection of peripheral devices very convenient. The build quality of the board is extremely good and the screen is made of tempered glass which should pass the tests of time. Finally the engineers at SPSolutions are really helpful and excellent at communicating the technical specifications of the board. I have found their service to be top class and highly recommend them.

I got a Donview interactive board in my infant classroom a few years ago and I honestly don’t know how I managed before without one. We use it every day for every subject. The children love to come up to the board to play games and do activities. It is so much clearer and less maintenance than a projector. The built-in computer is great for accessing online ebooks and websites and I also use it with a visualizer. We enjoy the board so much that we got a second one for the middle room during the summer. We would highly recommend them. Jennifer, Stratford Lodge National School, Baltinglass
