Abstract:
Wireless, mobile devices, video in the classroom, and enhanced collaboration solutions have all seen explosive growth in recent years. How can we harness the power of these technologies and more to deliver a truly connected experience that enhances engagement and collaboration, and learning for our students? We’ll illustrate how video-for-education solutions can connect students to information and experiences they would’ve never had access to before. In conjunction with collaboration solutions and anywhere-anytime access, this can lead to greater possibilities for group work and innovation, delivering transformative educational experiences.
