When it comes to the newest technology, Gen Z proves to utilize and adapt to new products and services faster than most generations. As more members of this age group enter college years, they begin to expect educational experiences that have fully embraced technology.
For higher education to cater to this growing population, colleges and universities must stay ahead of the curve. By upgrading your university’s AV technology, you can experience a range of benefits your students are sure to love. Here are just 3 of those benefits and how you can use technology to enhance the student experience.
In the world we live in, it’s nearly impossible to find some aspect of life where technology hasn’t improved or become a vital, functioning aspect. Education is no different. Students are accustomed to tablets, laptops, smartphones, and other gadgets in their daily lives. So much so that when students attend college, they come to expect the same AV technology that they experience in their personal lives.
By incorporating new or upgraded AV technology in the classroom, higher education institutions can enhance educational experiences with interactive and engaging technology that unlocks the potential of the learning environment. When classrooms and campuses are immersed in technology, students can thrive knowing that their educational capacity is limitless!
Create More Equitable Spaces
A major focus in higher education today is Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility. University campuses are expanding their equity programs and creating new centers and facilities that aim to create spaces that foster acceptance through education.
In creating these accessible spaces, universities should utilize upgraded technology to collaborate effortlessly with easy-to-use interfaces for both professors and students. Improved technology allows students to make connections more easily with each other. By breaking down physical barriers, more students are afforded the opportunity to experience connection regardless of their abilities or location.
Did you know, modern technology benefits on campus can increase applications by 35%? As the demand for video conferencing on college campuses continues to increase, students become more interested in universities with more modern, integrated technology that can keep up with their busy lives.
Universities can bring both functionality and a “wow” factor to campuses that have video walls, digital wayfinding for new students and guests, and interactive classroom AV tools. Incorporating some of these technology upgrades can make your institution more attractive to students, their families, and even recruiters working with high schools to find the best programs for their students.
Establish Solid Partnerships
Whatever your strategic goals may be, it’s always crucial to keep the student experience at the forefront of each new initiative. As this academic year wraps up, consider treating your students and faculty to upgraded AV technology that meets them where they are.
