Minnesota middle school chooses StarBoards

Hidden Oaks Middle School, located in Prior Lake, MN, has selected Hitachi Software StarBoard interactive whiteboards. The school uses the FXDUO-77 model in math, social studies and English classes.

Brent Stufft, English teacher at the middle school, finds the StarBoard helpful for editing paragraphs—for example, he “can take an article and set it up with mistakes for the students to find and correct,” which he says makes the lesson “much more interesting for the students.

Sarah Sheets, a math teacher at the middle school, says that “students love to write utilizing the StarBoard” and adds that she finds the product’s tools helpful, such as “the ability to display shapes, rotate them, and use a protractor on the screen” during her geometry lessons.
