Classroom Technologies is here to provide the essential tools to ensure equal opportunity for all students no matter where teaching and learning are taking place. The ability to swiftly and seamlessly adjust to the unknown short and long term future of curriculum delivery is essential for maintaining education continuity for all students whether they are remote, in-class, or a combination of both. Many school districts have already adopted, plan to adopt or are considering adopting virtual schools after the end of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a new RAND Corporation study.
Each school district has different needs and philosophies when it comes to distance and hybrid learning. We are here to support and enhance what your school already has in place. Classroom Technologies provides essential products and services such as laptops, interactive flat panels, mobile hotspots and upgrades to your IT network.
What we are most proud of though is our partnerships with school districts to find the right tools that bring the classroom to life for the distance learner and create a classroom environment where synchronous hybrid teaching is not only functional, but can thrive. We have found that with a few simple tools, such as the right classroom camera and microphone, teachers can move about the classroom, use the traditional teaching tools already in place and engage both students at home and in the classroom for a new, but authentic learning experience.

ENHANCED DOCUMENT CAMERAS
Whether students are learning from home or in class, document cameras have emerged as a multi-faceted solutions to add real-life curriculum examples no matter where teaching is happening. Clearly display your physical lesson material to both your in-class and remote students simultaneously. The document cameras can connect with your Auto Tracking Camera so your remote students will experience your instruction and demonstration material in real-time, without missing a beat. Portable, reliable, and durable, these cameras can easily be taken home by your teachers if they need to.
These plug and play microphones are a must in the connected classroom. The boundary microphone has three audio capsules that deliver an amazing 180° degree pickup with up to a 25′ range. Background and unwanted white noise is canceled out to deliver clear audio for those within range of the microphone as well. The teacher can choose which direction the microphone is facing to add student voices to a discussion so at home learners can hear or focus the microphone on themselves during direct instruction.
