A growing number of schools nationwide are adopting innovative technology solutions focused on helping students grasp concepts quicker and with more clarity.
These solutions include netbooks, iPads, sound systems, whiteboards, projectors, and more. Using technological tools can help engage students in lesson plans and is one of the main ways to improve student learning. Studies also show that the use of audio-visual technology in the classroom increases student interest, participation and achievement.
Green Schoolhouse Series Partner Extron, an expert in audio-visual equipment, designs systems specifically for classrooms and they are starting an aggressive Classroom Technology Grant Program which shows its commitment to enhancing the K-12 learning environment. The program provides increased visibility and expanded access for AV technology by supplying selected pilot classrooms with advanced audio video solutions at no cost to the district.
