Teachers are always looking for ways to help their students improve. Whether it’s new teaching techniques, study methods, or unique approaches, they’re searching for advantages to improve the learning process for their students.
Fortunately, teachers can now take their lessons to the next level with classroom audio visual systems.
What Is an Audio Visual System?
An audio visual system (sometimes referred to as an AV system) refers to technologies that work together to sync audio and visual content.
AV systems may include:
- Displays and projectors
These devices work together to create a single sensory experience.
Benefits of Classroom Audio Visual Systems
From K-12 schools to higher education, installing audio visual systems in classrooms brings unique benefits.
Increased Student Engagement
While students’ natural attention span is anywhere between 10-15 minutes long, classes often last between 50 and 90 minutes.
Classroom technology helps bridge this gap.
Improved Learning Experience
There are multiple ways to improve a student’s learning experience, but one of the best ways is to encourage active learning.
Active learning encourages students not just to receive knowledge but to engage with it by presenting their own ideas in class.
Interactive whiteboards and other audio visual equipment can ensure that these presentations are both instructive and dynamic.
For students, distractions come in many forms, from internal to external stimuli.
Classroom systems with the right AV technology give teachers more tools with which they can engage students and reduce distractions.
One of the best aspects of adding AV equipment to your classrooms is that you can get started right away.
You don’t have to wait until you can afford a premium, deluxe system with all the bells and whistles. Get started now with what you can afford, and you can always scale up as time goes by.
No two schools, teaching spaces, or instructors are alike.
We can design classroom AV solutions that are completely flexible to meet your needs and point you toward components that are compatible with the technology you already have to ensure that you enjoy a seamless experience.
Complete School System
If AV systems vary from room to room, it’s easy for teachers to feel overwhelmed and simply not use what they have at their disposal.
Here at Infassure, we’re capable of building complete solutions designed to offer a standard, intuitive experience from room to room.
Features of a Good Classroom Audio Visual System
Though the components of a good classroom audio visual system may vary, there are certain essential elements that they should all have in common.
Ease of Use
Educators didn’t enter the classroom because they wanted to become tech experts. Focusing on ease of use lightens their load and allows them to keep the main thing the main thing.
Professional Installation and Training
You may think installing it yourself using in-house staff may save you money, but in the long run, it can cost more time than it’s worth—not to mention lead to frustration.
By bringing in experts, you and your staff can keep focusing on what you do best.
These days, it’s more important than ever to keep lines of communication open.
A quality classroom audio visual system will always take into account the importance of paging as it relates to both school safety and overall campus communication.
Video in the classroom can do so much more than simply allow teachers to play clips to help amplify their lessons.
School video systems can also be used in the event of emergencies or safety drills.
Video technology has greatly advanced over the last few decades, giving schools options they’ve never had before.
- Wireless display
- Interactive whiteboards
- Projector screens
- Video walls
These components can serve to enhance your classroom audio visual systems.
Classroom audio visual systems aren’t just about improving the learning environment for the students.
They can also provide teachers with unified communication and safety options.
Such features include:
- Room controls
- Monitoring and Scheduling Panels
- Touchscreen options
- Virtual controls
Integrated Audio Systems
No matter the subject or classroom, integrated audio systems will enhance the environment.
- Wireless Microphones
- Voice tracking
- Digital Signal Processing
- Assistive Listening
