What’s New in Technology for the Classroom

It’s all about engagement. Read Tracie Bryant’s summary of the New Media Consortium’s predictions for the world of education technology in 2016, and you’ll see the common thread among each of the highlights.

In the Classrooms and Training Centers section of the AVI-SPL website, we provide you the resources to inform yourself about choosing the right collaboration technology to engage students, whether they’re in the classroom or walking around campus.

How Visualization and Simulation Tools Help Train and Test

Data is easy to come by. But making use of that data can be a challenge. Advanced visualization helps by immersing individuals and groups into simulated environments, and make it easy for groups to collaborate and gain consensus.

In simulation environments, students and trainees can safely experience situations that happen in the real world. These virtual environments immerse participants in realistic conditions so they can practice their courses of action. A simulator can also provide for safety engineering, testing, improved performance, and education.

Read “Visualization and Simulation for Research and Collaboration,” to learn how today’s advanced technology allows for:

  • Hologram environments where even the floor is a simulated environment
  • Personal, self-contained environments
  • 3D environments that allow user interaction via motion tracking
  • Images seamlessly warped and blended on any object
  • Unprecedented image fidelity using 4K resolution

How do you decide which collaboration technology is right for your organization and budget? Two AVI-SPL experts will answer that for corporations and educational institutions.

Erin Minich, director education collaboration services for AVI-SPL, will provide guidance in her conference session “Campus Collaboration Playbook: Solutions for Every Budget and Application.” Her talk is part of the EduComm Expo that runs September 30 and October 1 at Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center.

Dale Bottcher, SVP of sales & operations, will address the same topic for a corporate audience at the CorpComm Expo.
