Schools moving away from traditional classrooms now fill their learning spaces with flexible furniture to increase student engagement and productivity.

The alarming rate of school shootings in recent years has led to the creation of emergency notification systems that can send various types of messages to multiple devices, giving administrators more control.

Individuals can use this browser-based system to send color-coded email and text alerts to administrators and first responders through networked devices, such as desktops and smartphones. 

Smart TVs and whiteboards allow even more students to collaborate. Depending on the model, students can interact with a touch screen in 10 to 32 different places simultaneously. Many of these displays come with screen mirroring capabilities and apps that are loaded with learning activities.

Managing school energy use can save money and accelerate conservation. The latest in energy management technology can prevent waste automatically while allowing administrators to control ventilation and other systems from a computer or mobile app. Some platforms also track billing information and send alerts during emergencies, such as power outages.

One energy management solution even recycles outdated light bulbs.

Digital book platforms now provide more than just reading materials.

The latest technology can fill classrooms with movie theater-quality sound. Among the latest products are audio enhancers for videoconferences and speakers that can mount to various surfaces and generate sound from numerous devices. Students can add some constructive “noise” of their own with throwable microphones and online music platforms.

Today’s computer charging stations not only provide power, they also allow teachers to effortlessly transport an entire classroom’s laptops and tablets.

Educators and school administrators want touchscreen panels and projectors that not only display content, but support audience participation during presentations.

Math instruction continues to move further into digital territory, but many lessons still depend on hands-on activities and nondigital materials, such as textbooks.
