Changing Technology is Reshaping Education

Constantly changing technology is reshaping the way we all work, play, communicate, and educate. A new generation of students, more intimately familiar with computing, multimedia tools, and distance learning expect more from their education environment than just books and chalkboards. Gone are the days when a cart-mounted TV and video unit were considered “multi-media” tools. Today’s students expect high-tech learning institutions as well as the flexibility to learn from the comfort of their own home.

New applications allow teachers, professors, and instructors to provide a more dynamic and effective learning experience, improve teaching techniques, and ultimately raise test scores and graduation rates. In a fast-paced society, presenting students with literally hundreds of educational choices daily, it is important for schools, colleges, and universities to take advantage of changing technology tools and new applications, in order to stay competitive and keep students’ attention.

By adopting new technologies such as converged networks, wireless applications, and connected buildings systems, educational institutions can broaden the range of tools available in the classroom, improve network access and security for remote students, consolidate information, and maintain student records across an entire campus, all at a reduced operating cost. From using smartphones and tablets, to taking class attendance, to managing a centrally distributed audio-video program, convergence and deployment of wireless offers a whole new spectrum of services and benefits.
