IPEVO in Guatemala? If you are wondering what’s IPEVO got to do with Guatemala, read on to find out more!
IPEVO’s journey into Guatemala dates back to November 2015 when Trevor Gardner, a high school physics teacher from the Grove City Area School District in Pennsylvania approached us for a possible sponsorship of several IW2 Wireless Interactive Whiteboard Systems. At that time, Trevor was on a sabbatical teaching experience in a rural school in Canillá, Guatemala, and was lamenting not having an interactive whiteboard there.
As Trevor told us, most of the classrooms in the Grove City Area School District that he was teaching come with conventional interactive whiteboards which he finds to be rather cumbersome and overpriced, yet serve as a tremendous resource for his lessons. But things changed when he was preparing to teach in rural Guatemala, and that was when IPEVO came into his mind.
Affordability, Portability and Simplicity
“It was the affordability, portability, and simplicity of the IPEVO IW2 that made it the most viable option for use in rural Guatemala”, said Trevor as he summed up the reasons for approaching us. Due to its easy setup and fast calibration nature, IW2 can be taken right out from the box and be ready for use within a few minutes. Just download the required software, connect its Sensor Cam to an outlet, plug in the Wireless Receiver, start calibration, and voila!
