The Bellport High School library is now home to a fourth generation Nureva Wall (WM408i) dual system and workspace. The district is the first school district in the tri-state area to utilize this newest system as part of its ongoing strategy to support effective technology, library and media services.

The Nureva Wall is a visual collaboration system that provides opportunities for student-led learning. The system combines a panoramic projector with a cloud-based “canvas” that is both projected onto a wall and accessible through personal electronic devices. Two screens positioned side-by-side and each measuring seven-feet wide can be used independently or continuously as one screen and will allow groups of students to share and capture initial project thoughts and contributions; organize, plan and create; and discuss ideas and information by working directly on the Wall using digital sticky notes, templates, flipcharts, images, text or sketches. The Nureva Wall’s HD touch sensitive, 14-foot screen can be swiped out to 72 feet and is the highlight of the library’s newest classroom area. 

High school librarian Jayne Johnsen-Seeberger said the interactive and intuitive features of the technology “increases the level of student decision-making.” She added, “Students will collaborate by discussing what they want the canvas to communicate and what information is valuable enough to be added.”

The Nureva Wall should be available for student learning later this fall.

“The Nureva Wall truly provides 21st century learning skills, as well as skills important to employers, such as leadership, the ability to work as a team, written and verbal communication and problem-solving skills,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Joseph Giani said. “I would like to thank district administration and the many specialists from Phi Services, South Country Maintenance and Technology who allowed the installation to happen for the new school year.”
