Bryan County Schools
Organization Type: Public school district serving grades K-12
Size: 11 schools, 9,500+ students
Tech Stack: Vivi + Newline Interactive Flat Panels
The Bryan County Schools Technology Department wanted to provide teachers with the ability to set up their classrooms according to their individual needs and not be constrained to teach from the front of the classroom. They also faced inconsistent performance from their interactive flat panels (IFPs) across the school district.
The Technology Team, led by Director of Technology Bob Betz, paired Vivi with their existing IFPs to give teachers flexibility to teach from anywhere in their classrooms, deliver interactive lessons, and meet student needs while providing a consistent, reliable experience in all school buildings and classrooms. Vivi is now an essential tool used throughout Bryan County – in classrooms, the media center, and even the cafeteria.

When one school made a like-for-like comparison, it became clear that Vivi would deliver the solutions required—and more—at considerably less cost per classroom than Airtame.
As well as the functionality Vivi brought to the classroom, the teachers quickly learned to rely on it. “That’s one of the great things about Vivi,” says Burgess. “Before Vivi, we were forever replacing lost or broken HDMI cables. When people went to project, they couldn’t. Now, there’s no reason why our teachers can’t project—every room has Vivi and everyone knows how it works.”
