Technology is a constantly-changing space. Every minute, we become more advanced, more efficient and more adept in terms of technology.
So, how has this changed the education landscape, and in what ways is education benefitting from AV technology?
Yes, a thesis could be written on this topic but, sadly, we don’t quite have the resources for this! Instead, let’s ask the team at AVisual Productions to give an overview of the importance of AV technology in the classroom.
Gone are the days when you’d have to struggle to read the teacher’s writing on the chalkboard, or complete a listening exercise off of a tinny, old CD player speaker. AV technologies like interactive LED screens are able to deliver clear, concise information in a highly efficient way.
Modern LED screens are available in ultra-high definition, with audio systems that deliver crystal clear sound quality. This ensures that every child has the best chance of comprehending classroom content.
But written exercises are, no doubt, still incredibly important in the classroom, and AV technology provides these opportunities, too. Classroom LED screens act as a whiteboard, offering chances for writing and drawing which are two essential parts of a child’s education. In this sense, AV technology is able to combine old and new methods of learning to create the ideal student environment.
Studies have shown that when students are better engaged in the classroom, they’re more likely to focus and understand the content that’s being taught to them. AV technology, particularly in the form of interactive LED screens, is a powerful tool in raising student engagement.
LED screens and iPads give you the power to create an interactive environment. For example, informal quizzes are able to be displayed via the LED screen while each student answers individually on their iPad. This is a fun and highly engaging way to create a sense of competition while also testing student knowledge.
Another reason why AV technology is so important in education is because it can be used in every single level of education, from kindergarten to TAFE and university. Kindergarteners can be read eBooks by their teachers, which are displayed on a large LED wall. University students use AV technology every day, as their lectures are displayed on giant projectors.
Technology has a vital role in the education of future generations. To install advanced AV technology in your education institution, contact the team at AVisual Productions.
