Classrooms today need to encourage active learning which requires robust technology to support a wide variety of functions. Within this type of environment, the space is often broken into multiple collaborative groups making it essential that content be shared across multiple screens with the press of a button. Whether teams are focused on one large projected screen, are broken into collaborative groups, or are working and communicating individually, the content must be fluid and able to be viewed on one, all or select screens.
Generally control is centralized with the instructor who can then can push content to all the displays as well as any projection device in the space. In addition, the instructor can push any of the selected user laptop content to the different displays within the learn lab, can annotate over projected images from a Smart podium, or record a class session. These intuitive 21st century educational spaces encourage experiential learning which creates a richer, more dynamic experience.
