How Does RoomPro ONE Virtual Control Panel and Microphone System Improve Learning?

Every teacher wants a learning tool that is easy to use, affordable and worth the investment. RoomPro ONE is a fully integrated, all-in-one classroom control and microphone system that enables K-12 educators to provide an enhanced audio and video experience to improve student learning.

RoomPro ONE is equipped with a built-in infrared (IR) microphone system that offers optimized voice enhancement and 360° sound reinforcement for full-classroom auditory learning. It also includes a wall panel for simple, one-touch control and notably features a Virtual Control Panel.

The system is priced with tight school budgets in mind. “Our system is well-positioned to help schools create the classroom of tomorrow within the budget limitations of today. It essentially can be purchased for what you would expect to pay for a classroom microphone system alone,” says Dean Olds, president of RoomPro Technologies.

RoomPro ONE has also been well received by school technology specialists because it is engineered for quick installation. “RoomPro ONE includes a one-of-a-kind, all-metal ceiling enclosure that attaches cleanly to the ceiling and integrates four hi-fidelity speakers, audio amplifier, A/V switcher and projector mount-all in one,” he says. “And since our system is designed to be installed in under an hour…” adds Olds.

RoomPro ONE also includes a full complement of voice amplification options, starting with an IR pendant-style microphone that features an audio input jack for seamless connection to an iPod® or MP3 player or a separate plug-in headset teachers can wear comfortably around their necks if they prefer.

New SMART Slate™ Now Available for Mac Users

SMART Technologies announced that the SMART Slate™ WS200 wireless slate is now supports the Mac platform. SMART Slate™ enables teachers and students to interact with digital lessons projected on a screen, interactive whiteboard, interactive display or interactive pen display from anywhere in the classroom. SMART Slate™ WS200 was developed with extensive user feedback, resulting in the addition of several features, such as improved ergonomics and support for additional languages. The WS200 replaces the WS100 (formerly AirLiner™ WS100 wireless slate).

SMART Slate WS200

The SMART Slate™ can be used with or without a SMART Board™ interactive whiteboard, but on its own it functions easily with a computer and projector. To further enhance whole-class and small-group instruction, it works seamlessly with a SMART Board interactive whiteboard. Wireless Bluetooth® enables teachers and students to control on-screen learning applications, write and draw in digital ink, or open and view files. Ergonomic improvements have made the SMART Slate™ smaller, lighter and easier to hold.

The addition of a third programmable button enables customization, and the eraser function on the battery-free, tethered pen makes annotating with digital ink even more intuitive than it was on the WS100. The SMART Slate™ integrates seamlessly with a broad range of SMART products including the SMART Board interactive whiteboard, the SMART Slate™ also integrates with the SMART Podium™ interactive pen display.

If your school uses either PCs, Mac computers or both, now is the perfect time to add the SMART Slate™ to your classroom.
