Neat plus Zoom ensures schools are fully prepared with video to enable maximum learning engagement between teachers and students today and tomorrow.
How well-equipped with video are your classrooms?
Presently, educational institutions everywhere are six weeks or so into a new school year. Amid another wave of COVID-19, they face a whole host of challenges. And while many have chosen Zoom as their preferred software platform, teachers are discovering that trying to manage remote or hybrid lessons from a classroom using their laptop or a desktop computer isn't nearly engaging enough for them or their students.
Using a webcam, for example, doesn't deliver the same interactive experience that a dedicated video hardware device provides. To get the best out of Zoom, schools must seriously consider equipping their classrooms with highly capable audio-visual tools if they hope to maintain building their educational program and community to the utmost degree.
Enhanced student learning
British daily newspaper The Guardian reported last week that when the pandemic first struck in March, schools throughout the Baltic state of Estonia were able to seamlessly switch to online learning, thanks to the country's early investment in educational technology. As a result, kids in Estonia are reaping the rewards of the government's long-term investment in their academic well-being.
Indeed, it's a lesson to educational leaders everywhere. That schools should properly prepare for whatever scenarios lay ahead by taking steps to safeguard the academic future of their students now to avoid any potential learning loss or lack of community further on down the line. Developing the best possible solutions to empower teachers to educate students better is something Neat feels hugely driven to achieve.
