London, United Kingdom — 11th January 2012
Recognizing the ever-changing dynamics of technology in the classroom as well as collaborative learning requirements, Ergotron, a global leader in technology mounting and mobility solutions, is showcasing its education solutions, including the Tablet Management Cart and next generation TeachWell Mobile Digital Workspace, to audiences at BETT 2012 (Stand R18).
“The opportunities for educators to incorporate technology into their classroom and curriculum are boundless,” says Steve Belcher, UK sales manager at Ergotron. “However, each day educators lose time and momentum because of cramped classrooms and the hassles of switching technology. With TeachWell or the Tablet Management Cart, educators have an affordable, flexible and entirely comfortable way to seamlessly manage, access and engage with technology.”
Ergotron’s Tablet Management Cart’s open architecture allows for a flexible response to future technology changes and for the secure storage and transportation of up to 48 tablets, if all three modules are installed. With its easy one-time setup and secure cable management drawer (which limits student access), syncing and charging is as simple as connecting a master laptop via USB and plugging the one power cord into the wall socket. The system will automatically switch from charging to syncing using USB 2.0 protocol when the master laptop is connected. Module status and individual tablet charging status is visible with LED indicators. The cart ships fully assembled.
The next generation TeachWell un-tethers educators from a desk or podium and provides the freedom to move around the classroom for more collaboration and engagement with students. Educators can bring their computer up close for one-on-one discussions or use the adjustable podium for presentations. Additionally, the small footprint of the TeachWell workstation enables educators to increase classroom space by eliminating the need for a podium, secondary instructor desk and AV cart. Dependent on user preferences or classroom requirements, educators can customize their unit with accessories, including an LCD or Laptop Kit, a Projector Shelf or secure Storage Bin.
Ergotron offers educators a full portfolio of adjustable, ergonomic mounts and workstations suitable for creating active learning spaces, video conferencing, and digital signage throughout the whole campus. Through Ergotron’s Product Programs qualified educational facilities have the opportunity to try out education products in their own environment.
