Tech & Learning Live: Enhancing Multimedia In Classrooms

Tech & Learning Live is a high-powered, one-day event that provides K-12 decision makers with thought-provoking content on the hottest topics of the day in education technology.

An engaging and intimate setting, expert presentations and plenty of networking opportunities to ensure that participants leave with practical tools and key contacts for continued rich communities of practice.

AmpliVox CEO, Don Roth, will be at the event in Chicago on Friday, May 11, 2018 to present a discussion on "Specialized Furniture That Enhances Multimedia In Classrooms".

Remember the days of the big metal cart rolling down the hall with the giant TV and the VCR?

Thankfully, today's furniture is more functional, secure and also attractive.

Educators use a variety of multimedia devices to engage students and enhance learning such as:

  • Computers
  • Tablets
  • Projectors
  • Smartboards
  • Document Cameras
  • Smartphones

Effective devices need to be readily available for teachers and students to use. Being connected to sufficient audio is important, with storage to keep all audio visual equipment secured and ready-to-go.

The right multimedia furniture choices make digital equipment easier to use.

Obstacles to using classroom multimedia devices include:

  • Complicated setup
  • Devices not working properly
  • Equipment creates a cluttered classroom
  • Moving devices from room to room
  • Keeping devices charged
  • Inability of students to see/hear presentations
  • Keeping devices secure

Today’s furniture options offer customization to meet the needs and budgets of all different types of schools and situations.These are the multimedia features to look for when selecting a Lectern, Mobile Workstation, Portable PA System or Line Array Speaker.

Lecterns: One Size Does Not Fit All

Used extensively for high school/college classrooms, auditoriums, and meeting rooms, lecterns provide all-in-one storage and setup solutions.

With integrated shelves for projectors, power strips and data ports for devices and built-in sound systems, their lockable storage cabinets keeps all devices secure.

Mobile Workstations

When devices are shared between classrooms easily keep equipment "ready to go" with lockable cabinets, fold-out shelves for projectors, and rack mounts for sound system components. Sturdy, lockable casters provide for stable transportation and power strips and data ports allow for easy connectivity.

Portable Sound Systems

Ensure that all students can hear presentations. Your sound system should support wireless microphones and Bluetooth® streaming capabilities. AmpliVox Portable PA Systems are available in a wide range of sizes and power.

Line Array Speakers

Provide extra audio support for presentations, Line Array Speakers can be integrated with video conference carts, digital signage, and interactive white boards to deliver crystal clear sound in any setting.

The slim, lightweight compact line array speakers are designed with versatility and functionality in mind so they could be mounted onto any audio visual furniture, making it a perfect fit for adding a passive or amplified speaker to your media carts, projector carts or computer workstation.
