The idea for Teaching Technology for Education was born

5 years ago, following an idea by the team at Wedgwood

AV. Our team were and still are, supported by leading brand manufacturers who demonstrate their new technology and products to our staff and also for our customers on-site.

They supported us well at the recent Lincoln College Step-

Change event, where the college is doing an excellent job in training their tutors how to use technology in the classroom to continually enhance their teaching methods.

It was in such a training session that we had an 'Eureka' moment. Why not pass on our manufacturers' knowledge and training to teachers through a free-to-download, not-for-profit, online magazine, and thus Teaching

Technology for Education came into being. Thank you to Adrian from

BenQ, who came up with the slogan 'How technology helps me teach'. Thank you to you all. Best wishes, Linda. [email protected]

CASE STUDY: Recognise the benefits of laser as a light source Teaching Technology™

Recognise the benefits of laser as a light source

Both education and business have been quick to recognise the benefits of laser as a light source and Swindon Academy is one of the first establishments in the UK to deploy the new technology. With a projector lamp life of up to 20,000 hours and zero maintenance, operational costs are dramatically minimised, which makes a compelling proposition in resource stretched organisations...

The challenge

With a large performance hall with tiered seating, Swindon Academy was looking to replace its existing projector in order to achieve higher brightness and enhanced quality projection whilst ensuring they were future-proofed against evolving technologies such as 4K resolution and 3D content.

Reducing their operational costs was equally important, having suffered with frequent and expensive lamp replacement on their legacy projector with maintenance made all the more arduous with the projector located high up close to the ceiling.

The solution

Recent rapid development in alterative light sources has brought major benefits to the latest projector ranges from NEC Display Solutions.

Recommended was the recently launched PX laser projector from

NEC, with zero maintenance and up to 20,000 hour lamp life. This solution would immediately solve many issues suffered by Swindon Academy including high operational costs and access for maintenance.

Swindon Academy was looking to achieve brightness in excess of 10k lumens to ensure a vibrant picture is enjoyed by audiences. Laser technology achieves a brighter, purer, more intense image compared to lamp technology and at a much reduced power consumption. By utilising the stacking capability of the PX Series, brightness of 12,000 lumens is achievable.

Having the two new NEC laser projectors installed within a stacked configuration, Swindon Academy is benefiting from far greater brightness

04 Copyright ©2011-2016 Teaching Technology™ for Education www.teachingtechnology.co.uk Wedgwood AV Ltd., UK audio visual suppliers T: 01754 769967 www.wedgwood-group.com 05

CASE STUDY: Recognise the benefits of laser as a light source Teaching Technology™ and image quality meaning all students in the large hall can clearly see the content being displayed. Also, should a failure occur, they still have the option to run a single projector meaning the hall will never be out of use.

With Swindon Academy operating on a large campus on two separate sites, monitoring and control of digital assets is an demanding task and

Tony Mazzotta, ICT Senior Technician at Swindon Academy was seeking a solution which would help reduce dependence on his ICT staff. Once again, NEC was able to provide the solution through its NaviSet

Administrator, a software tool enabling control of all settings to be managed remotely including set up of automatic scheduling.

“It took a considerable amount of time to set up the hall each time it was needed for presentations, ensuring the projector was switched on and off and assisting users in operation of the rather confusing remote control.

The NaviSet system allows us to prep equipment in advance and set daily timers to switch the projector off when it's not needed. The remote control on their lectern was simple to use."

Using NaviSet Administrator, ICT staff will receive email alerts should there be any problems with the projector operation allowing potential issues to be fixed without causing unnecessary downtime.

The result

The overall cost of ownership reduction will be significant over time.

The Academy's previous projector was very expensive to maintain with lamps lasting only a couple of months and costing around £500 each to replace.

Tony Mazzotta sums up the success of the installation, “What we have achieved has made a huge impact on staff teaching and learning, the end solution with the stacked

NEC Projectors, the image and the brightness is out of this world. When external people come in and see the setup, the first thing they say is

‘WOW’.”

NEC PX Series of laser light source projectors

With the rapidly changing visual market, superior image quality is no longer limited to Digital Cinema and high-end usage. NEC is proud to be utilising Laser Light Source technology in order to meet professional projection demands, enabling a wider professional market to experience a brighter, purer, more intense projected image whilst making installation and maintenance easier.

NEC innovation in alternative light sources brings to market the new NEC

PX602UL, a DLP Laser installation projector delivering all the benefits associated with the latest laser light source technology. With no lamp replacement necessary, maintenance is not required and longevity is assured. Achieving an outstanding colour gamut and supreme image detail at high resolutions, laser is the light source of the future.

For further information please visit: www.wedgwood-group.com

With the PX602UL, NEC’s reputation and expertise in digital cinema projection, brings cinema quality laser technology to its professional projector range delivering high quality image projection, alongside genuine and significant cost saving benefits to address real business needs.

With up to 4K interface, HDMIout signal loop through, built-in signal splitter and edge blending capability, the PX602UL enables large presentation pictures without any external devices. The Picture-in-Picture

(PiP)function allows additional sources to be displayed.

Addressing the demanding large venue environment, the new NEC PX602UL presents advanced network, multimedia and professional installation features for superior projection performance within Rental/Staging,

Higher Education, Museums, large

Corporates and Signage installations.

NEC are happy to come along to your academy, college, university, museum, gallery, exhibition centre or other educational campus to demonstrate their newly launched laser light source projectors and/or their large format and touch screen displays.

VISUALISERS: Visualisers can be a powerful tool in the classroom Teaching Technology™

Visualisers can be a powerful tool in the classroom...

They provide teachers with the ability to include the entire class in lessons, but more than that, they allow a level of assessment that has proved to be invaluable in an age where Ofsted assessments abound and any tools that teachers can use to assist them in providing the information required of them can make a huge difference.

Using a visualiser in the classroom is a great way of using teaching resources, in fact any object or page can be recreated in a digital form shown to the class.

Visualisers have been available in schools for many years and there have been remarkable improvements in the technology.

There are now ultra high-definition models with a camera that can show an A3 page in excellent clarity. Over the years Genee World have developed a software package,

Genee Spark, which is extremely powerful and versatile interactive screen software. Designed to work on both interactive whiteboards and LED touchscreens, Spark provides a presenter or teacher with an infinite canvas area.

As well as importing documents and images from local files or the internet this software will run over the top of other applications allowing you to annotate, highlight and manipulate still images and videos. Lesson can be recorded and sent via video files for remote learning or homework.

There are also tools available in Spark that have been

VISUALISERS: Visualisers can be a powerful tool in the classroom Teaching Technology™ designed specifically for key stages in history, maths, geography and English.

All class-based lessons can benefit from using a visualiser. and as visualisers are essentially cameras, other activities can be recorded and played out in the classroom. For instance some teachers use the visualiser to record sports events and assemblies.

Case study

Art and Photography teacher, Simon Johnson, uses the

Genee Vision 8100HD visualiser in his lessons teaching key stage 3, GSCE, A-Level and the International Baccalaureate

Visual Arts.

Challenges

Before using the visualiser Simon had to gather students around a table to demonstrate a new skill or technique. For some students this is okay but for students who do not pick up ideas quickly or students who find it challenging to engage with a demonstration when they are out of their seat or in close proximity to others this is a problem.

By using the visualiser Simon can now demonstrate techniques to the student while they remain in their seats.

This helps the more able students who will then gain more time on the task as they can engage when they are ready and not when the demonstration has finished around the table. The other benefit is that Simon can record his demonstrations and post them on social media so that other students can see the techniques being taught on their mobile electronic devices.

“In many ways this has revolutionised my teaching practice as an art and photography teacher” Enthuses Simon, “ I can also ‘time lapse’ the films made with the visualiser so that pupils can see the process quicker and the end result sooner.”

Using the visualiser to record lessons also has the added benefit of assisting with Ofsted appraisals.

Ofsted, the regulatory body of schools in England & Wales, place great importance on the pace and challenge element in a lesson. So the visualiser is instrumental from that point of view. There are other benefits such as allowing students to draw and paint using the visualisers recording capability.

These films can be ‘time lapsed’ and distributed to peers, friends and families. Young pupils can see A-Level/IBDP VA students painting and drawing over and over again. This is known as ‘reciprocal learning’ and is an integral part of teaching pedagogy.

In many ways this has revolutionised my teaching practice as an art and photography teacher” Enthuses

DIGITAL SIGNAGE: Promote your school activities to students, teachers and parents

Digital signage solutions to promote your activities

There are dozens of notice boards on walls throughout schools, academies, colleges, universities and in public libraries and museums. Many of these are used for displaying information for students, staff and visitors, such as Health & Safety notices, restaurant menus, courses, activities and events. Digital signage is all about using small and large LCD/LED screens to display still and moving pictures, video, text, newsfeeds, real-time clocks and other media which has different information scheduled at varying times and can be updated from a computer somewhere in the building or over the Internet.

COLLABORATION: The new future Teaching Technology™

Rhobus Huddle

The

e

in eLearning

audio visual equipment and the new wave of thinking on the learning process, as a consequence, opens the door to new designs for the classroom of the future.

For over 50 years Unicol has been designing and manufacturing mounting systems for TVs and projectors. The company started by providing schools with slide projector stands and now, with the proliferation of technology, provides the whole AV industry with mounting systems across all markets. It is therefore no wonder that the latest OECD PISA

(Programme on International Student Assessment) report on the use of technology in schools stirs Unicol’s imagination.

The report states that “Schools have yet to take advantage of the potential of technology in the classroom to tackle the digital divide and give all students the skills they need in today’s connected world”.

ICT Expenditure Increase

It has been reported that expenditure on ICT in the 2014/15 school year reached an all-time high, typically £280 million for secondary schools alone. Not since 2008/9 when an expenditure on ICT across all UK maintained schools reached approximately £320 million has there been so much investment. This increase is great news for all in the education sector especially technology suppliers. The cost of technology keeps on falling over time, which with a significant increase in expenditure, results in a higher increase in investment in real terms. The UK education sector is renowned as a leader of introducing technology into the classroom and with the experience gained should be in a good position to maximise investment.

BYOD

BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) has been with us for a number of years and Unicol was quick to provide the mounts for screens and projectors on which the device output was displayed, enabling products such as Barco’s Click Share to rapidly deploy a complete solution onto the market. For schools, BYOD is less about the devices and more about the personalised content that users have loaded onto them.

Rarely do two devices share the same content or settings, and BYOD enables students and educators to leverage the tools that make them most efficient and productive. There is a growing host of mobile apps including such educational categories as screen-casting, content-sharing, electronic note-taking, expression, presentations, and more.

The widespread decentralisation of UK government policy towards ICT procurement for schools is offering more choice and freedom. However, schools wanting advice on what is available, what to buy and new trends in curriculum delivery through ICT find themselves with more work on their hands.

So how does this impact on a company designing and manufacturing AV mounting systems, which already has a product portfolio of over 65,000 pieces? Well, the increase in

ICT expenditure means an increase in the spend on specific

Barco's ClickShare projector mounted on a Unicol PSU

Collaborative Learning

Collaborative learning, which refers to students and teachers working together in peer-to-peer or group activities, is based on the perspective that learning is a social construct. The

10 Copyright ©2011-2016 Teaching Technology™ for Education www.teachingtechnology.co.uk Wedgwood AV Ltd., UK audio visual suppliers T: 01754 769967 www.wedgwood-group.com 11

COLLABORATION: The new future Teaching Technology™ approach involves activities that are generally focused around four principles: placing the learner at the centre, emphasizing interaction and doing, working in groups, and developing solutions to real-world problems. To enable group work,

Unicol have produced the Rhobus Huddle single or multiscreen unit pictured top left. This has BYOD connectivity, bespoke templates for peripherals and comes in 2 different shapes with a choice of table top finish and branding.

Collaborative learning models are proving successful in improving student engagement and achievement, especially for disadvantaged students. Teachers also benefit through peer groups as they engage in professional development and interdisciplinary teaching opportunities. of smart phones and social media the learning process, especially in higher education, is about to have a radical make over.

An added dimension to this trend is an increasing focus on online global collaboration where contemporary digital tools are used to engage with others around the world to support curricular objectives and inter-cultural understanding. This is made easier by using cloud services and servers. Schools around the globe are engaging in collaborative learning projects that leverage technology to connect teachers and students. Unicol’s Rhobus Huddle can be expanded for video conferencing allowing world wide collaboration.

Even the most fundamental collaborative devices, the humble dry-erase board and flip chart have been replaced by an electronic equivalent in the Smart kapp

board, which comes in 2 sizes, 42inch or 84inch. This is a digital capture board that enables users to capture, save and share ideas.

It offers a 21st century alternative to the conventional dryerase board allowing users anywhere in the world to actively participate, improving collaboration and productivity.

Unicol Pods on Wheels

Another link of trust, built up over 50 years, is Unicol’s ability to supply customised mounting solutions to its customers.

As technology asks questions of future teaching methods the classroom of the future may not be a classroom at all, just an open space that provides a focal point for students and teachers who are already connected via their phones. This space may be used for discussion, planning or collaboration, while the day to day learning is via laptop or phone. It is probable that these spaces will require more TV displays and video walls / LED panel arrays. Such AV installations need to be flexible so the space can be populated with devices when the need arises and when numbers of students dictate it.

SMART kapp 42 on Unicol trolley

Maximising Technology

Naace (National Association for all those interested in technology in Education) states that maximising the impact of technology on learning is crucial; technology permeates our working lives and reducing the use of it in the classroom would be a backward step. Technology can and does radically improve teaching and learning, but only with the right investments, especially in professional development, proper management, methods and practices. Naace believes that technology is the only way to dramatically expand access to knowledge.

To deliver on the promises technology holds, nations need to invest more effectively and ensure that teachers are at the forefront of designing and implementing this change.

Intel is partnering with Naace to launch its new ICT advisory call centre for UK education, an initiative that aims to create a link of trust for a wide range of educational practitioners to engage with each other and discuss technology and its implications in schools and the curriculum. What this may look like is an ever evolving picture but with the proliferation

The University of Essex, who say exploring new ways of thinking and pushing boundaries isn’t just encouraged, it’s expected, spent six months working closely on the design of POW’s (Pods on Wheels) with Unicol to ensure that these exactly matched their criteria.

University of Essex Head of AV, Tessa Roogowski commented, “The design answers a lot of functional requirements without compromise. The list was a long one:

* A portable classroom when building works are

running over and the time to install fixed AV is too short.

* Portable video conferencing.

* A flexible learning resource on wheels. Turns an open

space into individual group work pods.

* Group learning, students working in groups present to

the whole class on every POW (room must be wired for

this).

* High density stacking for storage.

* Aesthetically more pleasing than a standard TV trolley.”

However technology changes the face of education,

Unicol say they will continue to adapt their proven capabilities of designing and manufacturing robust, value engineered mounting solutions. By utilising tried and tested manufacturing techniques, combined with highly developed design methods, Unicol continue to build on their long experience in the AV business adding to their exciting product ranges that combine flexibility and durability with style.

Lincoln College

Step-Change event is a huge success

Lincoln College Lecturers

Win Award for Excellence

Two lecturers from Lincoln College have received a prestigious award for excellence in teaching and learning.

Peter Jackson and Paul Barnes were presented with the accolade by

David Russell, CEO of The Education

& Training Foundation during the

Learning Consortium Conference at the British Library in London.

It was in recognition of a project they’ve been working on for the last six months examining how to increase the confidence of teaching staff in their use of contemporary teaching techniques, including Information and Learning

Technology (ILT).

Peter Jackson receiving an Award for Excellence in Teaching and Learning from David Russell

"Recently there have been several new developments in how we learn and how our new generation of students learn. The Step-Change event explores the latest findings in neuroscience that suggest our brains are developing in new ways due to the use of the latest technology.

Indeed recent news articles concur with our keynote speaker, Baroness

Susan Greenfield, that technology is changing our behaviours and the way we learn. However, the current Minister for Further Education, Nick Boles suggests that teachers who engage with technology will replace those who don’t.

Information and Learning Technology

(ILT) allows teachers to add technology to their teaching toolkits in order to deliver lessons that hit multiple senses and allows our students the opportunity to enjoy their studies and fully engage with their chosen subjects. Our aim is to demonstrate a contemporary view of both learning and teaching." Peter Jackson,

Lecturer, Lincoln College. www.lincolncollege.ac.uk

Welcome to the Step-Change event by Gary Headland, CEO

“We think of our students as 21st century knowledge workers and are innovating constantly to provide an environment in which our students can learn using their information management and exploitation skills to maximum effect. This is a serious issue for any self-respecting education institution. We are pleased that our progress thus far has been acknowledged formally but we also recognise that there is much more we could and should do to develop new ways of supporting and accelerating learning, to ensure that our students leave us with the best possible education, with the right skills and are ready for work to meet the skills needs of our local and regional employers.” Gary Headland MA MBA

Greenfield delivered the keynote speech on 'The Internet and Mind

Change' and suggests that digital technologies are rewiring the brain's frontal cortex, which is the area of the brain responsible for cognitive analysis and abstract thought. She further suggests that a mind change brought on by increasing use of digital technology, smartphones, tablets, display screens and the Internet with the popularity of social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook, will be the new climate change.

After a networking buffet lunch,

Dr Andrew Clapham of Nottingham

Trent University, delivered his findings from action research carried out across the EMFEC region. Discussing 'What does Outstanding look like', he invited participants to ask the person next to them what makes an outstanding teacher.

Next on the agenda was a tour around the workshops for the attendees to see ILT and non-ILT teaching innovations, in four groups of 25 people visiting everyone.

Linda Adams, Director of Wedgwood

AV Ltd., an ISO9001 audio visual equipment supplier to education, public sector and businesses across the UK, and Editor of 'Teaching

Technology for Education', supported by her team of manufacturer and distribution partners, showcased digital teaching tools.

Huw Waters from Gyration demonstrated the Gyration Air

Mouse® as a presentation tool, with a 100m range, for use with electronic whiteboards and display screens. https://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=0Fbm6O0CxLU

David Evans of AVer demonstrated their range of visualisers including the

AVer F70W and F50HD, whilst Bentley

Lo showcased the new VC520 video conference camera which is a video collaboration tool for businesses and education that use web or cloud-based conferencing, ideal for communicating with other educational sites around the country or global.

Phil Waterhouse from Midwich, a trade only distributor of leading brand educational and business hardware, demonstrated the Awind WePresent

WiPG-1000 wireless interactive presentation gateway. With the appearance of a wireless router, this low-cost device allows students and teachers with their own device of a smartphone or Windows or Android tablets to wirelessly connect to a display screen or projector and send images from device to display. By using an IP address, participants in other parts of the country or the world can view the shared material, with the teacher retaining an element of control over who can connect.

Linda Adams introduced participants to Repeat Signage digital signage software, explaining how the software can be downloaded onto a media player or Windows PC (XP, Vista, Win

AVer visualisers - part of a teachers ILT toolkit

AVer F70W Wireless Camera

(visualiser) and Tablet App is a great addition to your teaching toolkit as it is mobile and can be moved around the classroom to capture 2D and

3D objects. Suitable for primary, secondary, FE and HE education, it is especially apt in the Bring Your

Own Device (BYOD) revolution we are experiencing, especially in further and higher education (FE, HE).

The F70W records experiments or even your lesson including live video, audio, annotation, highlights and supporting content. Once you've done recording, you can upload everything to YouTube, Dropbox or your Intranet for easy sharing and home viewing for revision.

You can present live video of anything from anywhere in the room, while annotating, highlighting and manipulating the content from your tablet or laptop without being tethered to the camera. You can also present student or group work from one end of the room with the camera while using the tablet app to interact with the content and another group elsewhere.

Traditionally, the teacher stood at the front of the desk to teach, and with the growing use of tablets, smartphones and wireless technology such as wireless cameras, this leaves the teacher freedom to move around the classroom, and can even pass the control of the tablet to a student to illustrate a point.

CAMERAS: Visualisers and video conferencing cameras Teaching Technology™

Video collaboration in conference rooms

AVer's latest technology is the VC520

Conference Camera. This professional camera is ideal for video collaboration in conference rooms, especially designed for people that use web or cloud-based conferencing.

Suitable for meeting rooms of all sizes, from huddle rooms all the way up to large conference rooms, this powerful pan, tilt, zoom (PTZ) camera comes with an advanced speakerphone.

Especially suited for use with laptops, you plug and play via the USB connection to give you Full HD video communication.

Video collaboration is an ideal way to take part in meetings without wasting time and costs on travel and overnight accommodation, and is easier to speak to people face-to-face in preference to a telephone call.

The AVer VC520 video conferencing camera has up to 10 presets so you don't waste time panning and zooming during meetings. All you have to do is programme the presets ahead of time on the remote control and then during the meeting you can shift the camera from a wide view of the room to a close-up of an object with just the press of a button.

Another useful feature of the

VC520 is the ability to daisy chain the speakerphone. The included speakerphone combines a 10W speaker and 3 embedded directional microphones, ideal for up to 10 people. Where you have 20 people in your meeting or language class, you have the option to daisy a second speakerphone.

It is interesting as to the applications used for video conferencing. I visited

Branston Community Academy in

Lincolnshire a few years ago, where the French A-Level teacher was utilising resources by teaching not only her small group of students but 2 or

3 students in another school across the county, thus saving on teacher resources, time and travel. Article:

REPEAT SIGNAGE: Taking part in Lincoln College's Step-Change event Teaching Technology™

Repeat Signage proud to take part in Lincoln College's

Step-Change event

Repeat Signage, easy-touse, professional digital signage software, helps you get your message across and promote your educational activities.

You just need a Windows based PC, a display screen or touch screen and Repeat Signage.

Features include touch screen support, remote updating and scheduling of presentations, and it supports Windows 10,

8/8.1, 7, Vista and XP.

To demonstrate Repeat Signage at

Lincoln College's Step-Change event, a simple presentation was created, comprising of college images on the left, real-time and date along the top, a Welcome to Lincoln College message with information on Open days and a newsfeed along the bottom of the presentation giving times of forthcoming Open Days. On the right of the presentation a play list of pictures with captions promote a few of the courses and support on offer.

Updating presentations remotely

Repeat Signage presentations can be uploaded to the College's own website or www.repeatserver.com

A PC connected to a display screen in a different location will automatically update itself when a revised presentation is uploaded. There is no charge for using the free online portal at www.repeatserver.com

REPEAT SIGNAGE: Taking part in Lincoln College's Step-Change event Teaching Technology™

Creating touch screen signage

Repeat Signage allows you to create touch screen digital signage presentations so that your students, teachers and visitors can interact with your digital signage screens. You would either need a touch screen monitor for this or a standard monitor with a mouse attached.

In reception area, for example, you could display a Repeat Signage presentation to give information on courses, student life and college news.

When you create a touch screen presentation, Repeat Signage allows you to decide how small or large you wish the 'touch' area to be. You create web pages on your computer using your web designer, hyperlink between the pages.

Then using the 'touch' control in Repeat

Signage, point it to the index.html page of your web page. On the non-touch area of your Repeat Signage presentation, you can add icons (buttons) and 'Click action' each one to take you to one of your local web pages.

In the Repeat Signage screenshots opposite, the middle section is the

'touch' area. When the hyperlinks of

Home, Courses, News or Student Life are touched (by finger on a touch screen or using a mouse on a standard monitor), pages are navigated. The icon buttons work in similar manner.

Generating income

Repeat Signage includes Repeat Pictures which allow you to create 'adverts'. For example, you could advertise the services of visiting dance or aerobic teachers, or private music lessons in the music department.

Can students create digital signage

content?

As Repeat Signage's licence is per PC playing the presentation onto a display screen, the 'creation' part of the software can be used free of charge. This means that students and teachers can download

Repeat Signage trial edition onto their

Windows PC and design presentations, for end of term work or to showcase projects. The presentation will play for 10 minutes before a 'trial version' message is splashed on screen, however that is long enough for students to show their work to their tutor.

Trial edition download www.repeatsoftware.com

Gyration wireless keyboard and mouse

- a tool to promote an interactive classroom

For any other provider thinking of using the Gyro

Suite in their own organisation, Adam Johns of

Basingstoke College of Technology (BCOT) makes the following recommendations:

• Roll out the Gyration Air Mouse Suite with training

• Demonstrate Gyration Air Mouse Suite with suitable software and learning objects to illustrate its strengths (2Connect and

Interactive PowerPoint slide shows are ideal) and supply staff with ready-to-use templates

• Get some suitable bags for transport and storage

WIRELESS RADIO MICE: Interactive tool promotes an interactive classroom Teaching Technology™

E-Learning has much to offer teachers and students but not all education facilities have an interactive whiteboard and projector in every classroom.

However, even if you only have a data projector, computer and a wall, a wireless mouse and keyboard allows a teacher to roam around the classroom and use the projector as an effective tool.

More schools and colleges are now using LCD interactive displays and a wireless mouse is an ideal accessory tool to control your on-screen presentations...

A Gyration wireless keyboard and mouse is an inexpensive option to involve learners and allows creative use of e-learning in a classroom.

The award-winning Gyration® Air

Mouse® delivers precise cursor control for any application: working both on your desk and in your hand up to

100-feet away. Compatible with

Windows and OS X-based PCs, the

Gyration Air Mouse gives you total control on or away from your desktop.

Gyration Air Mouse GO Plus

The Gyration Air Mouse GO Plus is used in many schools enabling interactive use of digital whiteboards, lecture slides, multimedia presentations and Internet curriculum, while doing double duty as a desktop mouse.

Gyration Air Mouse Mobile

For laptop users, the low profile Air

Mouse Mobile makes an ideal travel mouse designed for use on tray tables, desktops and handheld for PowerPoint or Keynote presentations.

SMART Board® 885ix3

SMART Technology to support teaching skills

To give students the best possible start in life through their further education, it is important to focus on great teaching and great support.

With the requirement of formal education until the age of 18 now in place, there are plenty of new challenges and opportunities to manage...

Flexible learning

With courses designed to enable the development of skills for work, entry courses to higher education or teaching

English as a second language, the technology required must be flexible to ensure all students get the best possible results.

SMART software

All SMART Board® products, whether interactive whiteboards or interactive displays for education come with

SMART Notebook® 15 software.

Designed to support a variety of different teaching approaches,

Notebook® 15 accommodates both large classes as well as small groups and individual student learning.

A SMART Notebook® Advantage subscription ensures teachers always have access to the latest innovations in SMART Notebook® software. Your subscription equips you with additional tools to make your lessons more dynamic and engaging. The annual subscription enables you to upgrade to the latest SMART Notebook® software, unlock add-ons and plug-ins and access live technical support.

SMART amp™ collaborative learning software is the solution that allows learners to work together via handheld devices that they are already familiar with. It enhances collaboration, content creation, communication, sharing and assessment from anywhere, on whatever device is being used.

SMART Board® interactive

whiteboards

The SMART Board® 480 is the entry level offering, size 77" diagonal with pen and dual touch functionality. The

480iV2 is the whiteboard system which includes the SMART Board® and V30 projector.

SMART Board® M600 series use

DViT® technology with 2 touch points on Windows® and Mac®, available in two sizes 77" (M680) and 87" (M685).

The M680i6 and M685i6 whiteboard systems include UF70 ultra short throw projector with optional speakers.

The SMART Board® 885ix3 interactive whiteboard system with U100w UST projector has 4 point touch for a premier user experience.

Projectors and replacement lamps

Whilst many schools and colleges have invested heavily in interactive whiteboards and projectors, with the latter there is the on-going cost of replacement projector lamps. Often it is more cost effective to simply purchase a new projector, which start from around £200+VAT for an SVGA model (800x600 pixels) and from around £250+VAT for an XGA model

(1024x768 pixels) and marginally more expensive for the widescreen models

(1280x800 pixels).

Many projector manufacturers have improved the life of projector lamps and there are often educational warranties such as 3 year de/reinstall on the projector and 1 year RTB warranty on the projector lamp.

When it comes to short throw (ST) and ultra short throw (UST) projectors these are more expensive than standard projectors, the key benefit being the elimination of projector light shining in the teachers' eyes.

Some manufacturers now have laser/

LED hybrid light source projectors in their range, and whilst these may cost more initially, no on-going costs are needed for replacement lamps.

Interactive projectors

An interactive projector comes with software and a pen and these can

20 Copyright ©2011-2016 Teaching Technology™ for Education www.teachingtechnology.co.uk Wedgwood AV Ltd., UK audio visual suppliers T: 01754 769967 www.wedgwood-group.com 21

project onto a dry-erase whiteboard, semi-matt whiteboard or even a solid plain coloured wall. These are useful where classrooms still have old dry-erase boards and saves having to replace them with interactive whiteboards.

SMART LightRaise™ interactive projector has 4 touch points whilst finger and pen is detected automatically.

SMART interactive panels

An interactive flat panel uses different technology to that of an interactive whiteboard. The SMART Board® E70 flat panel is 70" diagonal with Full HD

1080p resolution (1920x1080 pixels). It has 8 point touches using Windows® and includes Mac® support. It also features anti-glare glass, integrated loudspeakers, LED back-light for energy saving and includes SMART

Notebook® software.

Also in the SMART interactive flat panel family are the SMART Board®

4055 55" and the 4065 65" panels, again with Full HD resolution, 8 point touch on Windows®, anti-glare glass, integrated loudspeakers and includes SMART

Notebook® software.

The newest member of the

SMART family is the 6055

55" and 6065 65" interactive flat panels with 4K Ultra HD stunning visuals (3840x2160 pixels, 4 times that of HD) with

4 point touch. Pen IQ™ assigns different colour inks, while the panel recognises if you're using finger (touch), pen (write) or palm

(erase). Ideal for small group working at the display itself.

SMART kapp iQ™ with SMART

Notebook®

Launched September

2015, the SMART kapp iQ™ digital capture board in sizes 55" and 65", with SMART

Notebook®, allows you to capture and share notes or encourage students to view content, contribute ideas, brainstorm and deliver a basic presentation back to the class. With

Ultra HD 4K resolution and modern design it encourages collaborative and engaging learning.

TEACHING TECHNOLOGY: Celebrating 5 years anniversary Teaching Technology™

Teaching Technology for Education celebrates 5 years anniversary

Downloaded by teachers in 60 countries

As an ex-teacher, I often observed how new technology would arrive in school, usually without any training, and with little time to devote to learning how to use it. Therefore, when we set-up Wedgwood AV Ltd., celebrating its 20th year in June

2016, supplying ICT and audio visual equipment to education, healthcare and businesses across the UK, I wanted to give something back to education.

From the onset, Wedgwood AV produced guides for its customers and these have regularly been updated.

We discovered that there is a wealth of information on technology from the manufacturers, who would come and demonstrate their products and train our staff on how to best use these for varying market sectors. So the idea for the guides was born and these provide general information on technology, for example, the

Projector guide covers projectors and presentation equipment and over the years we've seen the introduction of interactive projectors, HD projectors,

3D Ready and 3D Direct projectors, projectors for large venues and laser projectors. With 4K products already on the market, many organisations are chosing 4K interactive flat panel displays instead of renewing projectors and interactive whiteboards.

FREE AV guides

January 2011 saw the launch of

Teaching Technology for Education as we wanted to take the guides idea and further develop this to provide information on new technology to teachers and trainers across the UK.

The first 3 issues were hard copy printed editions until we began to get requests from schools in France to receive copies. We made the decision to go digital - after all we were writing about technology - and so Teaching

Technology for Education is available online for anyone to download, including back issues.

I'm often asked why do I spend most of my time writing guides and Teaching

Technology for Education. I feel this a value add service for our Wedgwood

AV customers and website visitors, as I appreciate that budgets need to be spent wisely and I've seen, in my teaching days, too many products left unused in cupboards. Also it keeps us updated with new technology too as we are continually learning.

I would like to offer my sincere thanks to all the manufacturers who have contributed to Teaching Technology for

Education over the past five years and for the great prizes they have donated for schools to win, including Unicol trolleys, Hitachi projector, LG desktop monitor, NEC Display desktop monitor,

NEC widescreen monitor, TOP-TEC iMac Slippers, Repeat Signage digital signage software and an eBeam system. In this current issue, UK and

Ireland teachers have the chance to win a Genee GV50 UHD visualiser.

Technology in the classroom, library, conference room...

Unicol Rhobus Huddle with Polycom VC kit on a Unicol blade mount between the screens

Ideal for break-out rooms for video conferencing or sharing teacher resources across other schools

When it comes teaching with technology, teachers have many choices and this in itself can be somewhat confusing. Here we look at various technologies available on the market...

Interactive whiteboards

Interactive whiteboards are available in sizes, normally from 77" to

95" diagonal, from leading brand manufacturers. Touch points range from 2-point touch to 6-point touch.

The latter means that 3 students can use the whiteboard simultaneously using fingers on both hands with pinch and zoom gestures.

Projectors

There is a wide range of projectors for educational use, often with educational warranties such as manufacturer

3 year de/reinstall warranty and extended lamp warranty, for peace of mind.

One of the things to consider is to match the resolution of your projector with your interactive whiteboard, for example, if you are using a 16:10 widescreen interactive whiteboard, then choose a projector with 16:10 aspect ratio. Also, take into account the brightness, which will depend on the ambient light in the room.

Next consider where you are using the projector - will you need a portable projector for use in several rooms, or an installed one either ceiling installed, such as in a large lecture theatre, or an ultra short throw projector installed on the wall above the whiteboard.

You can also purchase whiteboard systems where the projector and board are installed on a frame, either fixed frame or height adjustable to suit small children or students using a wheelchair.

Large venue projectors are available with ANSI lumens brightness 5,500 and over, for use in lecture theatres and large school halls.

Where schools have dry-erase whiteboards, then interactive projectors with software and pen can be used on these boards, thus eliminating the need to replace these standard dry-erase boards for interactive models.

Replacement projector lamps and maintenance costs in changing the lamps can be a drain on budgets.

Manufacturers now have laser light source projectors in their range, which last the life of the projector.

Comes with a special pen and free downloadable software for education or business use. You can even use an eBeam on walls or tabletops. For teachers on the move, a laptop, portable projector and an eBeam gives an interactive solution.

LCD / LED large format displays

Large format displays (LFD) are large, widescreen LCD monitors.

Where they have energy-saving LED backlight, they are often referred to as

LED monitors or LED displays, and these are normally much thinner than conventional LCD monitors. There are many manufacturers displays to choose from and these are ideal for showing videos or for use with digital signage software for displaying school activities on screen in reception area, or displaying menus in the restaurant or information in the library.

Interactive (touch screen) displays are ideal for use in the classroom and encourage collaboration. With a choice of Full HD (1920x1080p) or 4K

Ultra HD resolutions (UHD 3840x2160 pixels), manufacturers often offer educational warranties. CTOUCH

TECHNOLOGY: HDBaseT a new standard for installation projectors Teaching Technology™

HDBaseT - a new standard for installation projectors

HDBaseT is now becoming a standard for installation projectors within the market.

HDBaseT can transmit signals, specifically ultra-highdefinition digital media, with no image degradation using standard LAN cables (Cat5e/6) up to 100m distance.

Hitachi's 9000 series and 8000 series installation projectors include the

HDBaseT feature.

These projectors provide digital inputs consisting of HDBaseT™, HDMI (x2),

DVI-D and SDI to handle many types of installation environments.

HDBaseT can transmit signals with no image degradation using standard

LAN cables of up to 100 metres.

SDI is the standard in the broadcast industry. 3G SDI can transfer 1080p signals via a coaxial cable. SDI is only available for Hitachi CP-HD9320 and

CP-HD9321 model projectors.

Hitachi's installation projectors also have DICOM® (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine)

Simulation Mode that projects grayscale images which approximate

DICOM® Part 14 specifications. This mode is ideal for viewing grayscale medical images such as X-rays, for training and educational purposes, especially in university teaching hospitals. However, it should be noted that these projectors are NOT medical projectors and are not complaint with the DICOM® standard and should

NOT be used for medical diagnosis, only for educational and training purposes.

Hitachi 9000 series projectors

The ever-increasing demand for converged audio visual AV signal distribution has driven the development of an exciting new industry-standard solution in the form of HDBaseT.

HDBaseT is the latest standard in professional AV (audio visual) distribution, allowing multiple signals to be simultaneously transmitted over standard CAT5/6 cable.

We are now hearing about something called 5Play coming into the mix. So what is 5Play? Well this represents the capabilities of HDBaseT technology and refers to the 5 key signal elements which full HDBaseT is capable of transmitting over a single Cat5/6.

The 5 key signal elements which make up full HDBaseT are: 1) Full HD or

Ultra HD Video 2) Digital audio 3)

Ethernet 4) Control signals 5) Power over Cable.

HDBaseT is capable of sending all 5 of these signals at the same time over a standard point to point Cat5/6/7 infrastructure.

CYP PU-507KIT

Manufacturers, including CYP, are bringing out solutions, such as the

CYP PU-507KIT, that allows HDBaseT

(uncompressed HDMI, audio, ethernet, PoE and control signals) to be transmitted over a single CAT5e/6 cable.

These combined HDMI and control signals can be transmitted up to lengths of 100 metres using the transmitter and receiver units that are supplied in each kit.

DISPLAY SCREENS: Education technology Teaching Technology™

Inside the education technology revolution

Sony 4K BRAVIA display screen

As learning and teaching techniques are adapting to cater to a digital audience, what role can technology play?

Integrating technology into classrooms is becoming a priority, if not a mandate in most educational institutions.

Technology is being used to inspire change, to help the education system

“break the mould” and raise standards.

Innovative technologies have to be at the heart of this journey, and nowhere is this more evident than in the development of audio visual technology (AV) and internet-based learning resources.

Sony understands this and is on the frontline, developing technologies and products to meet the demands of contemporary teaching – such as

4K and laser projection. Its range of education solutions gives primary, secondary and universities the reliable, long-lasting tools they need to capture attention and enhance learning.

For these educational institutions, visual information is key. At its most basic level, this means stimulating learning through presentations, images and videos that engage the imagination. When done properly, these vibrant materials can give the classroom a new dimension, transporting a lesson to a new world and a new realm of thought.

Inspire your audience

Picture quality is paramount here, and institutions must future-proof investments to get the most out of them – especially given the inevitable demand for increasing resolutions.

Sony’s latest and most advanced range of BRAVIA 4K displays guarantee brighter, better-looking pictures, smart features and affordable running costs. Sony has been at the cutting edge of 4K technology for the past decade, creating exceptional visual impact across lecture theatres, commons areas, training facilities and production environments. With four times the definition of traditional full HD (1920x1080), the 4K models

(3840x2160 pixels) ensure even sharper detail and stunning clarity.

This visual impact truly immerses students and staff alike, whether they are viewing high impact imagery or a complex graph.

Built to last

Sony’s commitment to striking images includes its laser projectors. Highly sophisticated but easy to use, these are ideal for larger classrooms and lecture theatres where projectors are in continuous use and gaining access to the unit for maintenance purposes can be difficult. Projectors play a vital role in teaching and inspiring audiences, although standard projectors require regular maintenance and bulb replacement. This level of maintenance is expensive—as much as hundreds of hours and thousands of pounds.

That’s time and money that could be better spent on more important projects.

The solution lies in Sony’s innovative laser projector technology where laser light arrays replace conventional lamps. Sony’s next-generation laser projectors run without any maintenance for up to 20,000 hours

(Using Auto Light Dimming. Actual hours may vary depending on usage environment.) That can be as much as 8 years in a normal university environment—9 times more than a standard projector.

Laser projectors reduce costs, increase efficiency, and work all the time.

Sony FHZ65 FHZ60 projectors

Creative solutions

When we talk about efficiency, this can mean more than just energy or budget considerations. Recent advances in IT have also helped eliminate constraints on space and time, opening up new possibilities for education facilities and allowing institutions to make the most of their available space. Sony’s

Ultra-Short Throw and Short Throw projectors’ reliable image reproduction ensures presentations are always seen clearly, even when ambient light levels are low. The interactive models even come with Sony’s Presentation

Utility application. Presenters are supplied with dual pen auto calibration interactivity and IPU2 software (VPL-

SW620C/ VPL-SW630C only) which allows for live onscreen annotation during presentations and lectures and teacher-pupil interactivity. Ideal for when space is at a premium, or the presenter needs to be close to the image on screen, eliminating shadows without compromising on quality.

Show, don’t tell

Ultimately, in today’s online world, nothing should be considered inaccessible. With the advent of mobile, students are used to having worlds of information and media at their fingertips. This variety of sources should be encouraged in the classroom too, paving the way for more active and interactive learning.

Sony’s Vision Presenter has been developed to give teachers access to a wide range of multimedia, allowing them to effortlessly combine videos, web content, live camera sources and more into one dynamic presentation.

Sony 10 bright reasons to switch to laser projection

1. Laser lasts longer - up to an estimated 20,000 hour operation - almost 10 years in normal use

2. Stay productive with fewer interruptions - no unexpected lamp changing

3. Less hassle, low ownership costs - no lamps, no maintenance, no downtime

4. Visibily brilliant pictures

5. Always stays bright without fading - with laser light source brightness lasts longer than a conventional lamp source that fades over time

6. No waiting for warm up - laser light source turns on and off instantly

7. Install it anyway you want - sideways, upside down!

8. Cleaner and greener - energy saving features built-in, kinder on the environment, reduced electricity bills

9. More of what you love - same standard chassis size

10. Dependable choice today and tomorrow - made to last longer

The education technology revolution means bringing learning into the digital age. By encouraging interactive and visual learning, technology is helping increase education consumption.

The end goal is to effectively captivate, energise and inspire the next generations of thinkers. pro.sony.eu
