    ELEARNING - IS THE REVOLUTION HERE?

    Fifty-five years ago this month UNICOL began providing stands to support 35mm carousel slide projectors in schools across the UK. So began the audiovisual (AV) industry and the introduction of projected images to enhance the learning experience.  Many years later and with the terms eLearning and Edtech driving modern thinking you would imagine the classroom of today would look very different. However, in general the teacher still stands at the front of a room full of students and the blackboard has been replaced with a whiteboard or TV screen. Obviously, the curriculum has changed and the ability to have immediate information from across the globe has enriched learning through collaboration and sharing.  

    Has the revolution happened or about to happen?

    WHEN THE MATRIX MEETS EDUCATION

    With approximately 95% of the population benefiting from learning through auditory and visual means, and 65% of that being visual, it’s never been more important for teaching to develop with the rise in technology.1

    Blending technology with traditional teaching allows for teachers to share information both auditory and visually. Through the last 15-20 years we’ve seen the introduction of SMART boards (replacing blackboards), ICT and coding becoming core subjects/topics and more recently, the introduction of tablets in the classroom/lecture theatre.

    So where do we go from here? With virtual and augmented reality (VR & AR) being the topic on everyone’s lips, it is impressive to see how enthusiastic the sector has grasped the opportunity to revolutionize the way the world teaches and learns.

    VR headsets have been heavily implemented through the use of mobile phones and Samsung’s recent advert2 has shown how thes

    WRAPPING UP ISE 2018

    As many of you know we attended Europe’s biggest AV show, Integrated Systems Europe (ISE), last week. We had the pleasure of meeting so many inspirational people and we really enjoyed being able to meet and greet new and existing customers.

This means that we will be bringing more of our extensive array of AV mounting solutions for you to see up close and personal.

Needless to say, we were thoroughly impressed with the look and feel of the whole build and it definitely allowed us to stand out amongst the sea of other companies. It enabled us to show off our wall, floor and ceiling mounting solutions with ease and
