The benefits of classroom technology can only be measured in how well the students and teachers actually use it. Far too often, teachers and faculty in schools across the world find themselves fed up with faulty A/V systems. Meanwhile, though, the students suffer most, because interactive classroom tech can’t live up to its name if it isn’t installed properly in the first place.
It’s crucial to provide clear, engaging visuals in classrooms whenever possible — whether they’re still images, animated clips, or videos.
It’s even better to get students up and moving, working to get their hands on those visuals to manipulate and share information with each other to provide multiple avenues for information to be burned into their brains.
But these bad classroom technology examples fail to accomplish any of that.
With a fresh school year ramping up, we hope none of the projects you’ve worked on this summer end up looking like some of these horrific examples.
More classroom technology resources: interactive whiteboards
Interactive whiteboards (IWBs) are all the rage in applications from classrooms to corporate huddle spaces, and beyond. They are intended as replacements for traditional blackboards, whiteboards, and old time overhead projectors.
There are many options when selecting an interactive whiteboard across a wide range of prices. Our editors have teamed with technology installers and manufacturers to create a new guide to help you entitled “RFP Template: Interactive Whiteboards”.
Discover the key features and benefits for IWBs as well as a list of critical questions that you should include in your next request for proposal. Get your copy today.
Campus safety tech
Writing a request for proposal (RFP) for technology is difficult, because there are so many moving parts and stakeholders on a campus, including the surrounding community as well as local law enforcement and private citizens if an urban setting.
