Why do Educators Recommend Smarter Surfaces?

  • We are a vocational school with 450 students. Since 2014 we have been using Smart whiteboard paint from Smarter Surfaces, starting off with one classroom and then in 2017 we expanded. We now have approximately 25 classrooms with a wall of 2.6m X 7m. as a whiteboard.
    On the wall, we use an Epson EB595Wi projector, teachers now have a whiteboard of 18m2 at their disposal.
    Teachers can now indicate a problem in the middle of the wall, and the students can now solve this on each side of the problem.
    Since using Smart whiteboard paint from Smarter Surfaces, our classrooms are now more flexible than we had before.

  • I am a buyer for Rocky View Schools in Alberta, Canada. I have purchased Smart Wall Paint for numerous locations in our division over the last few years.
    Comments received from teachers and staff have been positive, the students love the writable surface, and being able to write on an entire wall is especially fun.
    Overall, the experience has been great! Moving into a 21st Century style of teaching, this product fits perfectly with the learning environments in our schools.
    Using the surface with our projectors has also been a success, the paint allows for good viewing of images and as well as great interactive capabilities.
    I cannot provide a testimonial to the product without mentioning the wonderful staff at Smarter Surfaces. The customer service I receive has always been beyond satisfactory. Even when I have ordered incorrectly, everything possible has been done to correct the issue quickly and effortlessly.
    Thank you for the great product and service you provide to Rocky View Schools!!

  • After using Smart Wall Paint for one term now, the success has been obvious. Students have really taken to it and are engaged in their learning and it has created many more different learning opportunities in those classrooms.
    If you’re looking for that creative spark in your classroom, then I’d certainly recommend that you think about what potential learning opportunities this may lead to.

  • We use Smart Whiteboard Sheets to teach earthquake rescue to scouts in Nepal. It would be impossible to deliver this training without your product as the walls in Nepal are in a really bad condition. They are definitely supporting the modern way of teaching and they are really handy as you can just bring them with you anywhere you go, plus you can project on them as well!

  • I’ve been using Smart Wall Paint and find it really good for my Photoshop class. Without Smart Wall Paint, it would be more difficult to explain aspects of the image. By using the Smart Wall, I can effectively teach my photoshop class. The image is on the wall so I don’t have to move. Its saves me going back and forth to the computer. The Smart Wall allows me to easily pinpoint where in the image the class should be looking and allows me to make notes at the same time. This way, students can write their own notes and I can just demonstrate everything up here. Smart Wall Paint is a really positive thing to have in a teaching environment.

  • Eagle House School staff knew that whiteboard paint in the classroom was a hit with the pupils so we applied this amazing paint in some more classrooms. Now even more pupils are enjoying learning new things, especially maths, whilst feeling just a little bit naughty by writing on the walls. Worth every penny! Thank you.

    Malcolm W Young, Bursar, Eagle House School, UK

  • I use it on a planning/brain-storming table for students. They almost line up to use it! They see the space as one in which they can plan effectively on a bigger scale than a computer or paper allows. They love drawing on it!

    Simon McKenzie, Teacher, Aquinas College Gold Coast, Australia

  • We have found Smart Wall Paint invaluable when running different classes in our Centre, for example in our Computer class the tutor uses the whiteboard wall throughout the class to explain to the students the different aspects of the computer. Our Youth group get so much use out of the Smart Wall, during discussions they might be having, or planning different events. Our under 10 group have used it when planning projects. We hope to get more use out of it in the future with different groups or events held in our Centre.
    We found it easy to use, writing is so clear on it, when we use our projector it is a fantastic background, we also find it so easy to wipe clean.
