Video conferencing is perfect for education, as it opens up the world to students. In an age where people are connected more than ever, it is essential that teachers and schools afford opportunities for their students to connect as well. With modern A/V solutions, it’s possible to quickly and effectively access nearly any part of the globe, offering memorable and engaging opportunities for students of all ages. Data Projections can provide the needed technology and expertise, ensuring that the system provides teaching opportunities for many years to come.
How is video conferencing ideal for education
? Consider the following applications of the technology:
- A high school wants to increase the number of students that will attend college after graduation. To give students an idea of what university life is like, the high school partners with several universities to present virtual tours to the students. The students see classrooms, common areas, sports stadiums, courtyards and other points of interest, and subsequently decide they want to work toward college.
- An elementary school wants to help its young students build empathy and cultural awareness. So it partners with elementary schools in other countries and creates a link between the two. Students can communicate visually with their peers thousands of miles away, see what other classrooms are like, and make a positive impression on others.
- A teacher wants to make a complex scientific lesson easier to manage and understand for their students. So, the teacher reaches out to a research facility where they can demonstrate the lesson using real-world items. Teachers can also reach out to respected scientists, writers, and even athletes to help drive their students further.
Those are just a few examples of what video conferencing can do for education, and it’s important to note that the technology is only limited by the user’s creativity.
With Data Projections’ help, there certainly won’t be technology limitations. Our design team will consult with the school’s administrative staff to determine exactly what the school’s needs are. Once the system is installed, Data Projections will train teachers in its use and provide ongoing support to ensure it performs as advertised. The goal is to make education as dynamic and engaging as possible, and Data Projections is committed to that goal.
