Wireless screen sharing systems open the door for greater productivity and engagement in classrooms. Students can share information on their personal devices onto a screen and teachers are free to roam the classroom untethered by cords and dongles.
Now, Vivi, a system that was launched in Australia in 2016, is available in the U.S. A feature that sets it apart from other solutions is its compatibility across all device and all communications platforms. No matter what device a student might be using, they can present the information at the tap of a button via the Vivi app. According to Vivi, the open platform improves productivity and reduces teacher time spent on managing technology by up to 12 percent and helpdesk claims by as much as 4 percent.
“Education is evolving at a breakneck pace, and Vivi provides the foundation that allows teachers to implement personalized learning without worrying about how they’ll make it work,” says founder of Vivi Dr. Lior Rauchberger. Educators can walk into a Vivi-enabled classroom and instantly connect.
Vivi enhances the experience even further by enabling teachers and students to not only view screens but engage with the information. Through the Vivi app students and teachers are able to capture what’s being presented, annotate using Vivi’s built-in tools and save the screen for later reference. Vivi keeps track of student participation, helping teachers identify students who might need help or encouragement.
Vivi also supports video streaming, offering another dynamic teaching element to classrooms. Teachers can play video directly from the Vivi Receiver. The transmission happens over wiring, which keeps the Wi-Fi network open for other applications.
The system also powers school-wide communication with digital signage and emergency broadcasting. In a dangerous situation, teachers are able to instantly communicate the need for a lockdown, evacuation, or other safety measures across all screens and all devices with active Vivi connections.
