The solution

ScanSnap has proved to be a useful tool for teaching at Yokohama Takata Elementary School, an active user of ICT. It has provided valuable service in such tasks as digitizing school business plans and other administrative documents, and also in teaching, where it is used for storing survey forms or cards produced by students. It also has a part to play in the classroom, helping with collaborative learning (in which the children learn from each other) by scanning students' handwritten cards and displaying them on the electronic blackboard for everyone to see.

The benefits

  • Utilize collaborative learning in ways that take advantage of both analog and digital media
  • Can display scanned data on an electronic blackboard immediately, saving time
