Optimizing the AV Ecosystem for Classrooms

Classrooms are where learning and development happen which is why it is critical to have all the appropriate tools and processes on hand. This ensures that students are receiving a high-quality education that will prepare them for their future.


Technology has been a huge disruptor when it comes to traditional processes in various industries, including the education sector. In fact, the integration of Audio-Visual systems in classrooms has been found to be effective in boosting students’ academic performance across different groups.


How AV Can Enhance Classroom Systems

As students and teachers return to their classrooms, there is a strong need to make collaboration spaces more engaging and interactive with an emphasis on end-user safety and convenience.


Research has shown that there are positive, direct correlations between the implementation of Audio Visual (AV) enhancements in classroom systems and the improvement of students’ academic performance across various year groups.


There are several ways that audio enhancement and video installation can benefit students and teachers at your education facility, including:


1. Improved Task Behavior and Concentration

2. Reduction of Teachers’ Vocal Fatigue

3. Active Participation from Students

4. Better Behaved Students

5. Fewer Distracted Students


Importance of Innovation in Education

Innovation involves a different way of looking at problems and solving them. It also improves education because it compels students to use a higher level of thinking to solve complex problems. Innovation does not just mean the use of technology or new inventions, though these can contribute to innovation. Innovation involves a new way of thinking, thereby helping students develop their creativity and problem-solving skills.


In addition, it can also lead to better overall outcomes in the education sector. Students that are immersed in an innovative classroom have developed better communication skills and engagement capabilities when it comes to their peers. With personalized learning and differentiated opportunities, educators will be able to prepare students to be more competitive in the global business industry in the future.


With the world shifting towards implementing technological advancements, it is important for the education sector to create an environment that supports and fosters innovators as well as educational entrepreneurs. Innovation in education has never been more important today not just for students and learners, but for parents, teachers, and educators as well.


How Your Organization Can Have an Optimal AV Ecosystem?

Integrating an AV ecosystem in the classroom needs careful consideration in order to maximize its effects. There are a few steps that must be addressed and these are:


Assess Physical Space

Before you set up your AV ecosystem, you need to assess your current space to see what other ways to use it. Knowing how to maximize the space is critical to choosing the right AV ecosystem to implement.


Identify User Needs

It is important to identify target users and what their current needs are in order to choose and build the best facility for their use. For example, classrooms will need sound systems too to help teachers reduce their vocal fatigue while ensuring that students will hear them properly.


Reactive Maintenance and Predictive Maintenance

System downtime can negatively impact an organization, both big and small. Reduce downtime and disruptions with regular maintenance, or by adopting predictive maintenance whereby equipment failure can be detected before they happen.


What is SCAN2i?

Setting up an AV ecosystem in a classroom is just one part of having a robust Audio-Visual system. You also need to consider how you are going to manage and maintain them. Running your equipment to failure might mean that you are maximizing its lifespan, but it can also have a detrimental effect on classrooms and offices. Just imagine having your AV systems break down during a presentation or a conference. The best way to avoid this is to have a dedicated management portal that will monitor all your AV hardware to ensure that they are running smoothly. This is what SCAN2i is all about.


SCAN2i is a single-pane management portal that supports real-time management of your entire AV ecosystem. Using Artificial Intelligence as the backbone of this platform, SCAN2i is capable of conducting real-time monitoring, failure diagnostics, as well as predictive maintenance of all your AV hardware to ensure that everything is running smoothly.


Features of SCAN2i

Transforming the classroom into an innovative environment requires the implementation of the right tools like an AV system. It is important that all equipment is running optimally to maximize its function. With SCAN2i, you can expect the following features:
