Education THE FUTURE OF EDUCATION

The 21st century student is one who is wired up and plugged into the digital world.

With a mobile phone at his fingertips, he likes to learn anytime, anywhere, unbound by schedule. With a short attention span, engaging him requires ingenuity and impact. Socially, he constantly networks and likes to collaborate with others online.

For future generations that favors digital platforms, the use of new Pro-AV and Integrated Experience Solutions to drive student engagement and knowledge retention is therefore a natural and necessary progression.

These technologies can largely be classified into those which enhance presentation by the instructor, and those which enable collaboration amongst students.

Some of the most powerful benefits of integrated AV experiences in education include shared learning, better listening, interactive learning through visualization and opportunities to use more effective pedagogies.

Those who are amongst the first to embrace this transformation will lead the pack in the future.

Leaving No One Behind

Education is inclusive and no one should be deprived of knowledge. Pro-AV and Integrated Experience Technologies help to ensure that even those with learning disabilities are not left behind.

Hearing-impaired students can hear more clearly with audio enhancement systems which allow a teacher’s voice to be distributed evenly around the class via wall-mounted speakers.

Dyslexic students who struggle with understanding text from a book would cheer at the prospect of interactive whiteboards which enable their teachers to create lessons with video clips, images and colorful text to engage them. Similarly, students who have problems focusing would learn much better through interactive games which can be customized to achieve specific learning objectives.

Multisensory Learning Environments

Multisensory learning takes place when students are taught using more than one sense. They don’t just read; they also see, hear, touch and do.

This comes to life via Pro-AV and Integrated Experience Solutions like multimedia displays, simulations, 3D visualizations and virtual reality. Students can put on VR headsets and go on virtual field trips, observe a simulated surgery, immerse themselves in the 17th century.

Research from the University of California, Santa Barbara, has shown that students who get information in multisensory environments are better able to recall what they learnt. They are also able to generate up to 50 percent more creative solutions when trying to solve problems.

Learning Together

Digital collaboration technology – which includes web-based platforms and room-based systems - enables real-time video communication and learning between students.

Imagine every student in a classroom with his or her individual interactive touch-screen. From their seats, they can each change what appears onscreen, adding questions or highlighting portions, so everybody can benefit.

At some schools with campuses which are spread across geographical boundaries, these Pro-AV and Integrated Experience Solutions (including screen casting, social networking, document collaboration) enable students across campuses to work on group projects together.

Global Classroom

In a specially-designed studio in Boston, a high-resolution video wall shows the faces of 60 students on individual screens. These students come from all over the world and they have signed up for a business course with the famed Harvard Business School.

From where they are, with the help of an array of stationary and roaming video-cameras, they can see their fellow “classmates” and the lecturer from the school and participate actively in the discussion.

The virtual classroom, called HBX Live, has been hailed as a game-changer which reproduces the intimacy and interaction of an actual classroom, in a digital environment.
