First award recognizes Grapevine-Colleyville Independent School District
Allen, TX (March 28, 2023) – Newline Interactive, the leading provider of quality interactive touch displays and collaboration solutions, announced today that Grapevine-Colleyville Independent School District is the recipient of its first ever Distinguished Newline District Award. The Distinguished Newline District Award recognizes school districts that have partnered with Newline Interactive in product deployment, training, product enhancement, and future roadmap development.
“We are excited to award Grapevine-Colleyville ISD with the first-ever Distinguished Newline District award,” said Ty Hall, Senior VP of Sales & Marketing at Newline Interactive. “Over the past three years we have cultivated a close relationship with GCISD that has been instrumental in helping Newline gain better knowledge in the way classroom technology can be deployed and enhanced to assist both teachers and students, especially in this era of remote and hybrid learning.”
Grapevine-Colleyville ISD is a pre-K to 12th grade public school system located in the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex with 14,000 students across two cities. Newline first partnered with Grapevine-Colleyville in 2018 when the district began searching for a technology solution that would upgrade their classroom ecosystems from more traditional projectors to devices that would increase interactivity and collaboration in day-to-day instruction. When COVID-19 began to shut down in-person learning in Spring 2020, GCISD had to switch gears and craft a strategy for remote and hybrid learning that would be an easy transition for everyone, including teachers, in-person students, and remote students.
“Grapevine-Colleyville is grateful to have a strong partner in Newline Interactive, who worked with us to find the best solution for the most unexpected of situations when COVID-19 hit,” said GCISD Chief Technology Officer Kyle Berger. “We credit the team at Newline for their role in the district’s technology transformation during the pandemic in which they assisted in connecting all classrooms virtually using their interactive panels and cameras in each school.”
Berger adds, “Newline is the heart and soul of our classroom ecosystem. Our teachers now deliver instruction from their interactive panel that is joined to our interactive online videoconferencing system. By adding webcams into our classroom, they can now teach the students in-person and at home at the exact same time all within the ecosystem that they were presenting in normally.”
