Classroom AV Solutions
Classroom AV solutions present information in ways that reach students- no matter their learning style.
A classroom AV system supports innovative teaching styles and advanced emerging educational theories. The key is to engage students by making education accessible, interactive, and collaborative.
Videoconferencing and on-demand content now allows students and professionals to attend class lectures and training seminars from virtually anywhere. Sales representatives can participate in virtual role-playing sessions without taking time away from client calls. Students who must work for part of the school day can catch up on classwork by viewing recorded class sessions simply by logging in from their laptop, tablet, or smartphone.
When properly managed and presented, streaming and pre-recorded class video is an accessible classroom AV solution that is both efficient and cost-effective. Large school districts, colleges offering virtual classrooms, and businesses with multiple regional offices can limit travel costs by bringing people together on-demand. Workers can interact with specialists and vendors from business, medicine, law, and other industries. Teachers can incorporate resources from the internet, productivity software, in-house demonstrations, and simulations specific to the learner to bring lessons to life.
Video and audio capabilities also play a role in interactive classroom AV. By making new technology easier for the user to implement, the student can absorb and learn material faster. Interactive whiteboards and projectors, video walls, and touchscreen overlays immerse learners with the curriculum seamlessly. BYOD (bring-your-own-device) wireless connectivity assists not only in viewing multimedia content, but also sharing it across any platform.
As virtual classroom systems and technology become more prevalent, vendors are building software and apps that coordinate learning opportunities. Displays can combine these apps with student notes, primary research, expert lectures, video, and more to create a comprehensive approach to any subject. Students with different learning styles and abilities can focus on the aspects that engage them, making education more enjoyable and success more likely.
Digital classroom solutions that allow students and teachers to use their own devices means cooperation, teamwork, and a collaborative learning experience. AV in the classroom, dining hall, digital wayfinding, and other common areas makes innovative and non-traditional teaching methods more engaging. Role-playing, debates, peer instruction, and other activities command lesson attention with:
Taking a page from the corporate world, educators are even building spaces specifically designed to foster collaboration. Huddle rooms equipped with large monitors, cameras, and crisp audio capabilities are popping up on school campuses with increasing frequency. The spaces invite interaction among learners in the room and those logging in remotely, along with guest experts, peers from other campuses, and interested members of the community.
