Learning Beyond the Classroom:
A Hybrid Primer
New and still-evolving health and safety guidelines for schools require teachers, administrators, and IT directors to quickly transform educational settings to adapt to a new normal. While solutions may vary from school to school, the goal will be the same: to provide the same quality of education for millions of students despite unprecedented circumstances.
To ensure learning continues for students, teachers will be required to reimagine the classroom, with technology that delivers lessons simultaneously, in real time, for both students who attend class in person, and for those connected remotely using their devices.
Six elements of the hybrid classroom
ACTIVPANEL ELEMENTS SERIES
Promethean’s interactive panel helps teachers deliver more dynamic and interactive lessons and content. Lessons for students can be placed in any cloud-sharing platform, where students can easily access them from home.
Promethean offers Chrome OS, Android, and Windows compatibility, so schools can choose the computer operating system that works best for their IT ecosystem.
Promethean’s Screen Share application within the ActivPanel Elements Series allows you to duplicate and control student devices and collaborate from anywhere.
A high-speed Internet connection is essential to ensure that the Screen Share collaboration and video conferencing tools work smoothly.
The choice of camera depends on the size and layout of your classroom. Install the camera from the ceiling of the classroom or at a certain height on the wall or stand in front of the panel, so that the teacher is framed alongside the interactive panel.
VIDEO CONFERENCE SOFTWARE
Use videoconference software with robust security settings that enables communication from any device. Promethean is compatible with all of them.
