Technology is transforming the way education will be taught. Thanks to ubiquitous connectivity, a choice of collaboration platforms, touch screens and a plethora of mobile devices, teachers and students can engage, and collaborate, irrespective of physical distance. EdTech and the connected classroom are rapidly facilitating a new way of on-demand learning and online classes with access to digital study materials and subject matter experts that were previously unavailable
Video conferencing platforms
Microsoft Teams, Zoom Rooms and Google Classrooms
Interactive flat panels, laptops, interactive projectors, video conferencing
eLearning mobile apps, online learning from home, learning games
Tablets, smartphone, laptops
More than ever, the education market provides an enormous opportunity for IT resellers to refresh mobile equipment, upgrade existing infrastructure and server equipment, manage migration to the Cloud or deploy new technologies such as Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and Artificial Intelligence.
It seems likely that the connected classroom will remain an integral part of how education will be delivered in the future.
What’s driving transformation in schools?
There is a continuing demand for improved technology throughout the education sector. Leading tech companies have been working with schools and colleges to: cut teacher workload, support professional development and improve student outcomes.
Lower cost video conferencing platforms and better connectivity has provided more opportunity for Microsoft Teams, Zoom Rooms and Google Classroom to be fully deployed. Unquestionably, with the right equipment and with new technologies like Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality, learning can be more interactive and interesting for students. Technology can also personalise the pace of learning as well as prepare students better for the modern workplace.
