At the inauguration Mayor András Cser-Palkovics underlined the importance of the preparation of teachers who can use the potential of these tools in this smart classroom. He stressed that in the coming years they would like to create such smart classrooms in all local schools. “We want our children to be happy adults, and that includes finding the profession they enjoy… and that is why we need to teach them the knowledge and skills that will help them succeed in the digital world, they are going to live in."

Szabolcs Török, district director, thanked the pedagogues, who will go through training on how to use the new technology in education. As he said, this room also brings about a change of attitude for all teachers. It is natural for the new generation to use mobile devices and if we educators cannot adapt, we will fall behind, he said.
“The world is changing, and so are children and devices”, said Ágnes Lórodiné Lajkó, the school's principal. One of the most important tasks for an institution is to prepare children for life, and for that, teaching methods must change. The smart classroom provides appropriate environment for teaching through new pedagogical methods, thereby increasing student motivation and teaching efficiency, Lajkó continued.
