EdTech - how technology can improve your students learning experience

Technology has changed the way we live, work and communicate. It is no exception in education.

Many educational institutes have had to adapt their building to incorporate technology that can help move them away from traditional methods like using a chalk and blackboard. Edtech is an important part of modern learning because it can help teachers connect with their students, wherever they are located. This has been a revolutionary move but selecting the right tech for your needs can be challenging.

A Mckinsey study in 2021, showed that the top three barriers to using learning tech in high-education institutes are lack of awareness, inadequate deployment capabilities, and cost. Within this article, we will address these issues and suggest different types of technology.

Interactive displays

Interactive displays are a great way to enhance the learning process and are becoming more popular in the classroom. Moving away from the traditional whiteboards, teachers can incorporate more visuals within their classes. They provide a visual element that helps students stay engaged and encourage collaboration.

Runtech's recommendation

Delivering the most robust, seamless, and secure user experience, our interactive displays for education offer features that respond to the unique needs of teachers, IT administrators and school leaders. 

Featuring high precision technology, never run out of space with infinite canvas. Insert images next to your content for more meaningful messages to your students.

Enjoy easy navigation with a user-friendly UI designed for teachers and students, making lessons more dynamic. Control your laptop from the display or use the many powerful built-in features. 

Featuring 4K Ultra HD resolution, a powerful 45W stereo soundbar and microphone array, the display delivers optimal images and sound for everyone in the classroom as well as those learning remotely. Teachers can access legacy files from the cloud, as well as build new interactive lessons. A slightly cheaper alternative. 

There are many brands that have designed great interactive displays, including the four listed above as well as Genee, Smart, and Avocor. 

Hybrid learning

With traditional methods, there were limited options for students who would like to learn remotely. By incorporating technology that allows you to provide this option, your institute can now cater to in-class and remote learners, providing equal opportunities for students regardless of location. Additionally, software like Zoom is available, helping make it even easier for you to communicate with your students.

Runtech's recommendation

One touch to start a Zoom meeting, bring your remote learners into the classroom with full inclusivity. The DTEN has smart HD cameras with wide field of view (FOV), and Audio AI that reduces background noise.

The simple integrated solution for hybrid classrooms. Microphone Mist technology fills a space with thousands of virtual microphones, so everyone can be heard, from everywhere. With a 4K auto-tracking camera, remote students feel like they are in the room.

Interaction and collaboration

Studies have shown that collaborative learning promotes higher-level thinking, boosts students’ confidence and self-esteem. Theoretically, more interactive classes should help improve students’ engagement, ensuring they take in the content.

Runtech's recommendation

Solstice transforms learning experiences by enabling group collaboration, enriching lesson content, and promoting student-teacher engagement for in-person and hybrid classrooms. Turn your classroom into an Active learning centre.

With full BYOD support, you and your students can seamlessly connect sharing with a button or desktop app. C-10 makes hybrid collaboration flow in creative meetings, brainstorms, and discussion in one click.

High quality audio

High quality audio is so important in a lesson. Students can become unengaged if they are struggling to hear the teacher or audio within a presentation, especially in large classrooms or auditoriums.

Runtech's recommendation

High-quality column speakers with extraordinary clarity and detailed sound. Perfectly made for your acoustically difficult venues, reducing echo and microphone feedback.

Designed with the objective of audio excellence and acoustic comfort. These panels ensure a significant reduction of the room reverberation time that reflects better acoustic comfort. Available in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours, these acoustic panels either blend into the environment and go unnoticed or give personality to the space.

Although traditional methods can be cheaper, incorporating modern technology can transform your education institute. Financial plans are available, helping spread the investment strategically over a three-to-five-year period.
