A captivating display is the first step required to capture the attention of students and entice them to learn. A presentation device or display is the most basic audio visual system for any classroom and allows the teacher to present – whether it be a local presentation or enlightening video on a laptop or mobile device. Flat panel displays, video walls, projection systems, or even direct view LED can be incorporated into any classroom or lecture hall. Understanding the options available, with their individual pros and cons, is important when designing any presentation system.
Some learning environments require an immersive and collaborative audio visual system that is more complex than a simple visual display and audio system. Today’s more advanced learning systems give students the ability to manipulate digital content, present content from their own personal devices, and give the ability to present from multiple sources at the same time. For even more interactivity, Student Response Systems can be incorporated to allow students to directly respond to polls and questions and collect the data to give the presenter real-time feedback.
