As part of a campus extension, The Stonehenge School in Wiltshire, United Kingdom decided to overhaul its IT infrastructure to improve engagement in the classroom. Like many schools these days, Stonehenge had been relying on a mishmash of failing technology that was slowing teachers down and impacting students’ learning. With 840 students aged 11–16 and an increasing demand for school places, the school turned to Boxlight to bring revolutionary technology into the classroom—enhancing the learning experience and future-proofing the school ahead of continued expansion.

When school districts invest in technology, the tools they buy must be user-friendly, integrated, and ready to use to support instruction—not something that creates an additional burden for teachers. That’s the foundation that Clayton County Public Schools (CCPS)—Georgia’s fifth-largest school district—used in 2018 when it was time to refresh digital classroom tools.
Years earlier, CCPS had spent millions of dollars putting digital technology into classrooms, ending up with a very disjointed solution that included projectors from one manufacturer, whiteboards from another, student response systems made by a third provider, and slates and cameras by yet another. “None of it worked well together,” says Chief of Technology Rod Smith, M.Ed. “From an instructional standpoint, teachers need something that's seamless so they can save instructional time and focus on teaching students.”
