3 Reasons Education Technology Belongs in the Classroom

Technology throughout the entire education system is vital to keep students and teachers connected and engaged. Education technology and remote learning solutions may be as simple as amplifying a teacher with a wireless microphone, or as advanced as a complete simulation-based environment with audio, video, touchscreens, and digital dummies.

Live streaming and video content management tools can be used by colleges and universities to record and share lectures and additional learning media that students can access anywhere. Trade schools can incorporate simulation labs that can be graded and monitored remotely. Primary schools can leverage technology with tools like interactive whiteboards and video conferences between faculty and parents to ensure the success of each student.

Let’s take a look at the three reasons education technology belongs in the classroom, and how IDS can help.  

Engage Your Students

Student engagement is imperative for learning. Schools have to pivot quickly to adapt to remote and hybrid learning for younger students and youth. With interactive technologies, instructors are able to continue to engage their students.

Even before the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted education systems worldwide, technology played a key role in helping students learn. K-12 and higher education alike use technology from Logitech to connect with instructors, resources, and peers to advance their education. Take a look at the Logitech education solutions here.

More Accessibility

Before COVID-19 hit, online learning was a step behind in-person classes. Many online classes just consisted of a forum or portal, where students would answer weekly questions and participate in online discussion. There were also very few online classes to choose from.

Nowadays, remote learning is a staple at most higher education institutions. Colleges and universities attract more students and qualified faculty when using technology to support more accessibility, like live stream classes, remote learning, and virtual office hours.

We even have the data to prove it. Read one of our case studies. With the unique cloud-based solutions IDS built for Arizona State University, students out in the field can stay connected to instructors regardless of how far their education takes them. See how your university can do the same.

Seamless Integrations

Programs that support continuous education and life-long learners need seamless integrations with minimal downtime, while still providing cutting-edge simulation labs that provide hands-on experience.

IDS provides video communication, AV integration, and managed services to organizations looking to improve communication and technology strategies. We work with leading technology providers to create complete end-to-end technology and platform solutions.

Our Managed Services are a suite of hardware and software support services, along with a completely US-based Customer Support team that allows your organization to easily deploy, use, and scale video conferencing solutions. We also continue to monitor and manage your equipment to get the most uptime and remove technology headaches that come up along the way.  

Many school districts are using a digital streaming solution to deliver more media to individual classrooms seamlessly. Read one of our case studies, and see how user-friendly technology helps faculty from the Pendleton County School District adopt programs and systems faster.
