The modern classroom is always a collaborative environment - teachers engage students, and students work together to achieve their academic goals. However, in recent education trends, classrooms are abandoning the classic "sage on the stage" setup in favor of a flexible classrooms approach, where there is not a defined front of the room, but a space where furniture and multimedia tools can be re-arranged. Education has moved beyond just memorizing facts and figures, and shifted to team engagement and learning the collaborative skills necessary to compete in today's business environment.
So how can an improvement in technology meet this new standard? Ultimately, innovative education technology should always empower content and creativity. Smarter Systems integrates interactive touch displays, interactive projection systems, as well as wireless connectivity for a bring your own device approach. Our next generation SMART Learning Suite software provides connectivity and student engagement from phones, tablets, and laptops. Smarter Systems also designs and installs standard displays, projection systems, audio systems, and wireless systems. Whether your instructional team wants interactive touch or standard presentation capabilities, we can help you build a solution that works for your school or university classroom, and even provide user training and servicing to ensure your system reaches its maximum capability.
