AVI-SPL to Showcase Professional Development Courses at MACUL 2011

fetc-2008.jpg

How do you ensure students are learning in the most interactive and dynamic classroom possible? By integrating functional classroom technology that livens up the lesson plan and effectively training teachers so they’re getting the maximum benefits from their technology. That’s why AVI-SPL is heading to MACUL 2011 at Cobo Center in Detroit, March 16-18, where they’ll demonstrate professional development courses.

“We want our teachers to learn as much as possible when it comes to technology’s versatility in the classroom, and to use this knowledge to help improve their interactions, as well as student engagement,? says Robert Moss, vice president of education sales, AVI-SPL. “Professional development training is a critical step in the right direction, one that can benefit not only teachers, but their students as well.?

Beginning Thursday, March 17, AVI-SPL will host 20-minute Professional Development presentations at booth #445 at MACUL throughout the show. For a complete schedule, see below.

AVI-SPL’s training and professional development classes, ranging from 30 minutes to full day courses, are taught by SMART-certified trainers. Training Courses include SMART Notebook Basics, SMART Table Basics and SMART Grade Level Specific Notebook Advanced, among others. Because learning doesn’t stop when class is over, registered participants gain access to an online database library of supporting training materials. They also receive a video of their training session for future reference.

Also at AVI-SPL’s booth, AMX will demonstrate SchoolView, a solution that aligns with green-building initiatives that many school districts are facing. SchoolView automates management of energy-consuming resources like PCs and AV equipment, and further increases cost reductions by simplifying maintenance and support, which extends technology lifecycles. Did you know a school with 200 PCs left in sleep mode overnight during a typical school year will still consume approximately $3,000 of power? The AMX SchoolView solution is a scalable approach that takes advantage of existing school data networks by streamlining bell schedules, bringing network precision to clocks, and delivering audio paging and streaming video.

Beginning Thursday, March 17, AMX will host 20-minute SchoolView presentations entitled I Want to Be Automated, Safe, Green and Connected at booth #445 at MACUL throughout the show. For a complete schedule, see below.

In addition, AVI-SPL will be giving away several prizes at the show including:

• A complete interactive classroom of the future featuring a SMART Board 680 and stand, SMART document camera, SMART Response, SMART Slate, Chief® CoPilot™, InFocus interactive projector, Balt® ReFlex™ chairs and presentation cart.

• A Copernicus i-Rover
