Educational technology is changing faster than ever
Important educational trends include:
More and more schools and universities are engaging their students using interactive whiteboards, on-screen annotation and various types of collaborative software and systems.
Use of the Internet, instructional visuals and simulations is easier than ever as educators add projectors and large screen displays to every classroom.
More Streaming Media.
Video and audio capture of lectures and classes has proven extremely beneficial, whether for live viewing off-site or review later from a video-on-demand server.
More distance learning.
Districts and universities are using this technology to expand their offerings in Asian languages, AP classes and advanced courses in every field; they’re bringing professors and guest lecturers from other campuses without the need for travel; they’re participating in cultural-exchange exchanges with students in other countries.
High definition video, better sound and fast, low-cost network communications are making a difference as well. Even simple changes, such as reinforcing the teacher’s voice, are helping students better engage with the instruction.
As instructors capture more of their students’ attention and imaginations, outcomes improve measurably.
To take full advantage of these important trends, you need a very knowledgeable, highly experienced classroom technology integration specialist who will put your needs and priorities first.
That’s why it’s so important to use an integrator like ADTECH Systems. We have been installing AV technology in New England schools since the early 1990s and have built an engineering staff, installation department and training department that are second to none.
Because ADTECH Systems is known as one of the best places to work in the AV industry, we’re able to attract and retain some of the industry’s best talent. Our engineers average over ten years of AV industry experience and our programmers over five. Each of our project managers has been with the company for at least ten years.
Because so much of this technology is new, it is essential that your teachers know how to make the best use of it. That’s why ADTECH has full time trainers on staff specializing in training teachers on the latest classroom hardware and software. We will insure that your students reap the rewards of your investment in technology
We are also one of the few AV integrators in the region with an in-house service department. All of our AV integration work includes a one year warranty on workmanship. Ask about our unique ‘rollover’ service agreements.
