At last week’s InfoComm 2012 event in Las Vegas, Samsung exhibited its Smart School solution. A 65″ eBoard works with both Windows-based PCs and Android operating systems, as well as the Samsung Galaxy Tab, allowing teachers to move freely around the room while giving interactive lessons. Teachers can also share specific student screens as well as interactive content like quizzes and polls. Watch the InfoComm presentation at the link above, and look at this demonstration of the Samsung Smart School solution in the classroom:

A successful integration is more than the sum of its high-profile equipment and solutions – those displays and video conferencing equipment that provide the “wow factor.” Florida International University’s new home for its School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) required the latest audiovisual presentation solutions for areas including a 300-plus seat auditorium, two distance-learning interactive classrooms, multimedia classrooms, and two conference rooms with high-definition video conferencing capabilities. And while there’s plenty of “wow” to be seen, AVI-SPL delivered the signals and sounds by implementing solutions by TV One, Tannoy, Liberty AV and Extron.
Tannoy speakers deliver clear, strong audio to attendees in the conference and boardrooms, and Liberty AV wall and floor plates are essential to making connections in the auditorium, classrooms and boardroom.
All of the video signal distribution and amplification is handled by Extron solutions while signal scaling and up, down and cross conversion is trusted to TV One equipment. Discover additional solutions that AVI-SPL used when you read the project profile of AVI-SPL’s integration for FIU SIPA.
Two Summer Institutes are planned for the Tampa and Detroit areas this year. Dunedin Highland Middle School located in beautiful Dunedin, Florida, is the host site for our four-day event, July 23rd to 26th. The prestigious Cranbrook School in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan is the site for the Summer Institute, held August 23rd and 24th. Hundreds of teachers are expected to gather and work in Professional Learning Communities and create engaging strategies that support higher-order thinking skills for their students. And the cool thing is they will be learning how to use the latest in classroom technology at the same time!
Registration is currently open for both events. To learn more about the Summer Institutes, select one of these links:
