Calgary Girls' School is an all-female public charter school in Calgary, Alberta for grades 4 to 9. According to Joel Melashenko, Director of Technology, "Our ViewSonic ViewBoards display wall in the commons area is used for everything from showcasing student projects to communicating time sensitive information to collaborating on 3D modeling projects. Because the experience is interactive, and each display is connected to a Raspberry Pi and Apple TV, these displays are available to students via the school's network. The technology adds an entirely new dimension to learning. Now every space in our school is a learning space. When students come for conferences, the wall is a real focal point for discussion and conversation. The experience is like working with a live textbook. The possibilities for our students are limitless."

The new line up of ViewSonic interactive flat panel displays, interactive projectors, and commercial-grade large format displays will be available in Canada in July. For further news and information about ViewSonic, visit and follow on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.
