Digital disruptions mean new categories of jobs will emerge, and those jobs will require new skillsets. How can colleges and universities ensure they outfit students with the skills and experience they require for the new world of work?
Join us September 26 at 11 am PT/ 2 pm ET as we examine how technology tools that allow students to work alongside professionals — both virtually and physically — can enable students to graduate more prepared for high-demand fields. Our featured speakers will explore:
- How educational organizations can integrate advanced, secure, effective AV and collaboration solutions to connect students to the resources and technologies they need to prepare for successful careers.
- Top tools for workplace readiness, such as interactive displays and huddle rooms, virtual reality, augmented reality and simulation, and how some top universities are using them.
- How universities can leverage industry collaborations to get the tech tools they need.
The three-year renovation of the Canada Science and Technology Museum includes an array of technology — including edge-blending projection and video collaboration — that creates an immersive experience for visitors, improves outreach programming, and improves the meeting experience for staff. Audiovisual technology like wireless microphones and conferencing solutions empowers the museum to provide educational events that can include remote participants.
During this webinar, Todd Bergum of Vaddio discusses the latest products that record and stream classroom lectures. In this context, he looks at Vaddio solutions for multi-site control of classroom cameras from a central location, and makes the case that AV technology systems need to be simple and easy for everyone to use. Topics include:
- Trends in technology, including the needs of students, teachers, and the IT department with regard to classroom technology
- Using AV systems with apps that are used in the classroom
- Vaddio’s AV Bridge products (including the Matrix PRO)
- Examples of camera shots and tracking in the classroom
- Vaddio solution presets and automation
- IP streaming and control
Todd also answers attendee questions about the Vaddio solutions.
