Wire­less Pre­sen­ta­tion, An­no­ta­tion and Mod­er­a­tion in the Class­room

The Australian Education Reporter - - EDUTECH 2018 -

IN a world where data and rich content are ex­pand­ing ex­po­nen­tially, Barco em­pow­ers ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tions with im­pres­sive vi­su­al­i­sa­tion and in­no­va­tive col­lab­o­ra­tion solutions to help staff and stu­dents make mean­ing­ful con­nec­tions.

Barco wep­re­sent is an award-win­ning wire­less pre­sen­ta­tion sys­tem, widely adopted by ed­u­ca­tors, that al­lows up to 64 users to share content from any de­vice to present, in­ter­act and col­lab­o­rate.

Per­fectly suited to BYOD en­vi­ron­ments, wep­re­sent brings teach­ers, guest pre­sen­ters, stu­dents and ad­min­is­tra­tive staff the free­dom to share content wire­lessly to screens and an­no­tate ei­ther in the same class­room, meet­ing room, or amphitheatre within the same net­work.

While multi-user col­lab­o­ra­tion and in­ter­ac­tion is en­cour­aged, or­der and rules are still re­quired in the class­room. The con­fer­ence con­trol al­lows teach­ers to choose and con­trol which par­tic­i­pants’ de­vices are dis­played on the main screen via the moderator con­trol panel, which can be op­er­ated on any com­puter, tablet or smart­phone. The lock but­ton al­lows a teacher to fully con­trol the ses­sion, pre­vent­ing un­in­vited pre­sen­ters in the au­di­ence from pro­ject­ing their own screens.

Users can also view pre­sen­ta­tions in real time and down­load orig­i­nal content from their own web browser, thanks to the Web­slides fea­ture, a browser-based pre­sen­ta­tion viewer for the au­di­ence. This elim­i­nates the hassle of cre­at­ing cross-de­vice com­pat­i­ble me­dia files for a pre­sen­ta­tion.

Mul­ti­ple screen shar­ing, mo­bile screen mir­ror­ing, touch-en­abled an­no­ta­tions, white board­ing, browser-based pre­sen­ta­tion viewer, me­dia player, doc­u­ment cam­era in­te­gra­tion and cen­tralised man­age­ment of wire­less pre­sen­ta­tion de­vices over the net­work are es­sen­tial func­tion­al­i­ties in ed­u­ca­tional en­vi­ron­ments where the flipped class­room ap­proach to learn­ing and teach­ing is utilised.

For schools and teach­ers wish­ing to see a first-hand demon­stra­tion, Barco’s part­ner and dis­trib­u­tor of wep­re­sent, Au­dio Vis­ual Dis­trib­u­tors (AVD), will be at the 2018 EDUTECH In­ter­na­tional Congress and expo be­ing held at the Syd­ney In­ter­na­tional Con­ven­tion Cen­tre from June 6-8.

Head down to AVD’S booth #821 to find out more about wire­less pre­sen­ta­tion solutions for your school or visit: www.avdis­trib­u­tors.com.au.
