Recent developments in education, triggered by movements such as the Scale-Up project, have forced schools to rethink the design of their classrooms and created a need for new and innovative classroom technology solutions. With its stability and ease of use, the wePresent wireless presentation gateway is the perfect device to deploy across universities and K-12 classrooms.
More than 50 colleges and universities across the US have adopted the SCALE-UP or TEAL approach to implementing technology. These forward-thinking institutions are looking for classroom technology solutions that easily adapt to the BYOD culture and give students a better source for unified communication and collaboration. For a more in-depth look, read our blog post on active learning classrooms.
The TEAL project, initiated at MIT with physics professor John Belcher, is a classroom design that includes multiple projectors, video cameras, white boards, an instructor work station, group tables, and networked laptops and was developed to engage students and promote teamwork.
