Presentation Systems – Enhancing Education

Presentation Systems – Enhancing Education

One of the largest businesses in the world is the trade in education services. From private to public colleges, to schools and Universities millions of people spend time every day learning a new skill or preparing for their future. Millions of people depend on the education sector for a pay cheque at the end of every month.

Over the past 20 years technology has really revolutionized every aspect of this business. In short it has been able to deliver a simultaneous experience to learners with a variety of different styles by using modern technology and the integration of audio and visual presentations into the classroom. Gone are the days of overhead projectors and large televisions rolled into classrooms on large carts.

Projection Systems in High Schools

Schools around the world are installing projection systems in every classroom to augment the student learning experience. Paul, Projects Systems Engineer at Videonations, says “we have seen a dramatic rise in sales to the education sector. It has taken a while but it now seems that the projection system in the classroom is very much here, and here to stay.”

The systems allow students and teachers to produce and deliver modern and interactive presentations. For teachers this technology is a boon because it allows
them to better engage their learners and increases the quality of the instruction time.

Students enjoy the projectors as well. Not only are they a neat tool for the students to use in their seminars and major projects, but also they provide real world experience. While the student may think they are doing a fun project on their favorite pop star, integrating video, media, polls, and other fun technology they are actually learning how to prepare and present their first business case.

Oak Ridge High School System

In Oak Ridge Tennessee, USA, students and their parents are at the leading edge of technology. The city recently went through a special tax assessment to upgrade their high school classrooms to modern standards including projectors. Their 4700 students use the latest technology manufactured by Epson to deliver cutting edge education and instruction.

Universities

When the University of Western Ontario unveiled its new “super classroom” students could not wait to get back to classes. A modern auditorium with theatre style seating and a modern projection system the room brought learning at the schools faculty of education into the modern age. The classroom is equipped with a fully integrated audio and visual presentation system. This system includes wireless microphones, projection, video and DVD, Internet, and student interactivity features. All of which have greatly enhanced the feel and operation of the classroom environment. You can read more about it here.

Overall
As time will continue to move forward so too will digital media technology in both the business and education sectors, with the later sector being one of the biggest businesses in the world.

Going forward it is important for all business sectors including the education sector to continue to be leaders in the implementation of digital technology. This leadership will give their employees, students, and trainees the equipment they need to succeed in the modern digital economy and allow them to seize opportunities which were previously not possible. More importantly for the education business, student recruitment and the students of the future were brought up in the digital world. In short they demand modernity.

Moving into Microsoft

Hi all

After about 8+ years of experience in the Microsoft Dynamics GP & CRM platforms, I have finally achieved what I have been dreaming all these years – an opportunity to work in one of the most coveted organizations in the world – MICROSOFT.

I would be joining the great software giant as a partner consultant for Dynamics ERP in Bengaluru, India, later this month.

I thank you all for the wonderful guidance which each member in this community has provided me, which has enabled me to reach this level. It just gets tougher now, as I need to keep up to the expectations. I hope to learn new things at Microsoft and I am sure I will be able to provide more assistance to all the community folks in the future.

As Robert Frost rightly said, “It’s miles to go before I sleep…”

Until next post…

MVP for the second successive year!

Hi all

I just got notified that I have been presented with the Most Valuable Professional recognition for Microsoft Dynamics GP for 2011. This is the second successive year that I have been given this recognition by Microsoft. Thanks to them for valuing my contributions. :)

And also, special thanks to my friends Mariano Gomez, David Musgrave, Mark Polino, Victoria Yudin, Jivtesh (and many more…) who have been a source of inspiration to me in many ways, which I am sure is one of the prime reasons for me reaching this milestone yet again…

Also, I would like to thank all the folks in the community who have valued my responses in the forums, and contributions in my blogs. :)

Thanks to all for your support…

Until next post!
