Classrooms Using AV Technology
New models for learning keep evolving and technology plays a significant role in facilitating these methods. At IVCi, we design audio visual and collaboration solutions for many different educational environments, including higher-education and corporate training. From immersive video communications to virtual classrooms, we deliver solutions so learning can happen both locally and globally, with students either working with each other in the same room or with others from distant cultures.
From small huddle rooms with cameras, speakers, and monitors to large telepresence classrooms with virtual and in-room collaboration, IVCi delivers solutions that support the latest trends in education. We design audio visual solutions for many different environments, including K-12, Higher-Education, and Private or Charter Schools.
Engagement is the push behind this new student-centered model where instructors guide and pupils actively learn. Using the “flipped classroom,” students participate in discussions or problem solving activities during class time while they have access to their teachers, and homework becomes viewing a recorded lecture. This improves achievement by encouraging students to become self-directed learners and stewards of their own progress.
Students now have the ability to view a lecture at any time. If they are unable to attend a lecture, they can listen to a recording. They are saved so missing a session is no longer an issue. Also, if a student is having difficulties with a lesson, they can always review it again and grasp some key points they may have missed the first time through.
Through live streaming or live video both faculty and students can be located anywhere and use any device. Many students want and need non-traditional schedules and borderless education meets this demand. Because of its flexibility, distance learning is growing in popularity in both higher education and corporate training programs. Since it has the capacity to reach many more people, it is extremely cost-effective and efficient. As learning resources shrink and requirements expand, this paradigm is a great solution.
