OPELIKA, AL (WSFA) - New interactive technology is making it's way into Opelika City Schools this school year.

Over 100 interactive panels have been installed across the school system.

At Carver Primary, teachers are saying goodbye to white boards and markers, and using their finger tips to give their lessons.

"You can have up to two, four, six--up to 10 kids on it at one time with the 10 points of touch these boards have," said District Technology Coordinator for Opelika Schools Stacy Royster.

New interactive panels have been placed in K-5th grade classrooms throughout Opelika. The panels are designed to improve interactions and Royster hopes they create a better learning experience for the kids.

"We can put different lessons on there for them to work on at any given time, so you can really personalize the learning experience for the children, and that's one of the reasons why we chose this panel over a lot of the others," she said.
