Building Automation Solutions Can Enhance Students’ Productivity
Sometimes it’s hard to imagine how much technology has become a part of students’ lives.
From the moment they wake up until just before they go to sleep, many children never take their eyes off of a screen.
Far from an indictment about their behavior, they’re essentially capable of receiving and processing information at a lightning pace. It’s the duty of educators to take advantage of that, and it starts with building automation solutions.
In this blog, we’ll illustrate how enhancing the technological presence in the classroom can improve student engagement and facilitate the learning experience.
Sharing information over a wireless network has become second nature. So there’s no reason you can’t share files and other learning materials the same way.
Each student can have wireless access to a school intranet to help them keep track of their work and stay organized throughout their day.
A wireless mesh network integrated throughout the school would ensure that each student has access without battling for bandwidth. They can store their books, notes and more on a schoolwide cloud for easy access.
That way, no one can say they’ve forgotten their homework ever again!
Students who don’t receive personalized attention can oftentimes fall behind on their studies.
In a traditional classroom setup, that’s exactly what happens. Students sit through lectures without much interaction and they can begin to drift.
Interactive whiteboards can help them stay on track and engaged with the lesson, by allowing them to ask pointed, specific questions about the task at hand.
Efficient Projector and Slide Sharing
Much of each lesson is taught with a projector. Whether the teacher is trying to share a power-point presentation or a video, the projected image is essential.
But a lot of time can be wasted if teachers spend half of the class setting up the technology.
Instead, offer one-touch solutions for starting the projector and dimming the lights to the appropriate levels.
That way, teachers can get back to teaching more quickly.
For each system throughout the learning facility, administrators can still maintain full centralized control.
If the lights are left on in a classroom, or if the integrated projector is not stored correctly after use, administrators can quickly solve the problem with the touch of a button.
It will free up time to make their jobs easier.
