Learn more about the practical solutions you need to support in-person and remote learning
The “hybrid workplace” is getting a lot of public attention these days, but it’s not the only industry undergoing a massive paradigm shift in the post-pandemic landscape. The future of colleges and universities is heading in the same direction as the workplace.
We, at Level 3 Audiovisual have the opportunity to work with some world-class educators in various pedagogical disciplines in our pursuit to provide next generation technology solutions for higher education organizations. Several of these organizations are leading the learning technology evolution and changing the way they approach classroom technology configurations.
HOW TO GIVE REMOTE STUDENTS THE CLASSROOM EXPERIENCE
Distance learning and extension programs are excellent ways for higher education institutions to increase enrollment and reach without making large investments in new buildings, staff, and other infrastructure. But the colleges and universities that will benefit the most these programs are those that create a remote learning experience that is equal to that of the classroom. Here are three questions to help you determine whether remote students can participate to the same extent and in-classroom students—and here’s how to fix it if they can’t.
Education is a staple of modern life and technology is increasingly a staple of modern education. The education technology industry represents $8 billion in annual spending, and public schools in the United States spend $3 billion a year on digital content. In most cases it’s money well spent. Seventy-four percent of teachers who responded to a recent national survey conducted by PBS said technology enables them to reinforce and expand classroom content. In addition, 73 percent of respondents said technology helps them better respond to a variety of learning styles, and more than two-thirds said they want more technology in their classrooms. Despite the benefits, however, simply adding more technology to the classroom, whether in K-12 or higher education, doesn’t guarantee results.
