Learning environments need to be adaptable and flexible for the changing needs of students and teachers. With more and more classes online, institutions are learning lessons on how to deliver remote instruction while still engaging students. Many public and private schools are taking a hybrid approach with their classes with a mix of in-person and remote instruction. The virtual learning experience has become enhanced with digital displays, monitors, video cameras, microphones, and more. But limited electrical outlets on the perimeter of any space can hamper innovative digital arrangements. Extension cords are not a sensible option as they are unattractive and, more importantly, create trip hazards.
3 ways that Connectrac Flex® can help facilitate flexible classrooms and learning environments:
1) Technology Where It’s Needed
Supplying power and technology access right where it’s needed is vital. Connectrac Flex raceway systems can bring technology right to the desired point of access. These innovative and adaptable raceways can be installed under carpet tile or on top of any flooring surface. Connectrac products are ADA-compliant and unite students and staff through technology in a safe, seamless manner at virtually every point in the room.
2) Flexible Classrooms
Flexibility is essential to support collaboration between online students, in-person counterparts, and instructors. As a result, classrooms must be able to quickly adapt to new modifications over time. Flex allows users to quickly add connectivity or change power locations, so reconfiguring interior layouts while maintaining connectivity becomes a practical option.
3) Campus Life
Classrooms aren’t the only spaces where Connectrac offers schools convenient access to power and data. Connectrac brings abundant, accessible options to student unions, lounges, libraries, office spaces, and public-use spaces for extra charging stations, stronger Internet service, and augmented video experiences. Institutions are also incorporating dynamic video conferencing and streaming capabilities in student gathering spaces to promote socialization for remote students.
As education institutions evolve, Connectrac equips learning facilities with agile power and data access to foster enriching experiences and keep students engaged. Learn more about Connectrac Flex here!
