Dynamic Teaching

THE OPPORTUNITIES

CAPTIVATING VISUALS

Learning often starts with visual content, requiring material that grabs the eye while communicating and educating.

IMPACTFUL SOUND

Capturing - and keeping - student attention requires students to hear teachers clearly at all times.

PRODUCTIVE WORK

Enable teachers to efficiently complete tasks from lesson creation to grading to emailing parents so they have more time to focus on their students.

THE SOLUTIONS

BROADEN THE VIEW

When teaching remotely, visual clarity is essential. It lets students experience teachers' body language and other nonverbal communication cues, heightening their connection and understanding.

 

Standalone webcams offer different fields of view and let teachers use whiteboards or show other materials to students for a more natural teaching and learning interaction. They may be positioned on a monitor or a tripod.

 

Streaming cameras empower teachers to create dynamic lessons for real-time or recorded delivery.

 

In addition, encourage teachers to put light in front of them versus behind them, and to limit natural lighting in their teaching area.

FOCUS THE CONVERSATION

Background noises create a serious barrier to effective learning regardless of the environment. Teachers may not be able to control every noise in their homes - like when the dog barks or a housemate decides to vacuum. That's where proper planning comes into play.

 

A noise-cancelling headset drowns out distracting sounds so students hear only the teacher versus the teacher's background environment, helping them to remain focused on the lesson.

 

A standalone mic provides exceptional audio clarity to aid comprehension by avoiding misheard or unheard information.

POWER PRODUCTIVITY

Working with students 1:1 or in groups is at the heart and soul of what educators do. However, they must also complete many tasks that require great attention to detail. Helping them work efficiently frees them up to have more time to focus on their students. 

 

Teachers can increase speed by 30% and precision by 50% by using a mouse versus a trackpad.Logitech Ergonomic Lab study on 23 participants in (Oct / 2019) with four Logitech standard mice and two standard, embedded trackpads.

 

Using an external keyboard allows teachers to raise their laptops to eye height and position it at least 0.51 m away from them to avoid unnecessary eye strain.Computer Eye Strain: How to Prevent Eye Strain From Screen Time.

With an external webcam, teachers can easily show work to parents or use a tripod to provide different views of material during staff meetings.


A noise-canceling headset blocks out background distractions from family, roommates, pets and more so they can focus and get more done in less time.
