We are in the early planning stages for a new academic building for our business department.  I am part of a small group tasked with picking the latest and greatest classroom technology for this new building.  We have been directed to make sure we are ‘looking forward’ so that the technology can be maintained at a high level over time.  We realize that there will be things in the future that are currently unknown but want to be as prepared as possible.  I have been asked to find a few schools that have recently completed new academic buildings to give us some advice and recommendations.  Ideally, we would like to find someone that would be willing to talk to us about their experience.

 

 

Thanks in advance for you input.

Would be happy to discuss the particulars of the design considerations for a new building.

Cecil College will be opening the doors to a new Engineering and Math building this time next year. Beyond the typical user-facing technology considerations like wi-fi device to user density ratios, LED displays, mobile enabled, USB power outlets, etc. the building was designed to function as an instructional technology  itself. Data from the building management systems plus other sensors will be collected and made available to instructors & students for use in classes and select data will be displayed in dashboard fashion on monitors in public spaces.

Hi John,

 

At George Mason University, we are about the open a new building, Exploratory Hall, serving our College of Science.  The building contains over 30 technology classrooms, which our division will support. 

 

We believe that we have created an enterprise classroom environment at our institution, which supports to new devices that faculty and students will use in these classrooms, as well as the reducing costs of installing, maintaining, supporting and refreshing technology classrooms. 

 

These new spaces employ our digital media standards, available here:

http://doit.gmu.edu/staffSection.asp?page=ucts

 

The new building also includes a SCALE-UP type classrooms, although we believe that our Active Learning Classrooms (or ALCs) will serve active and participatory learning beyond scientific instruction.  As such, we’ve schedule several faculty from non-scientific disciplines to teach in our amazing new space, starting in the fall.

 

Mason has also invested in telepresence facilities, if you’re beginning to look at collaborative instruction across campuses, institutions and/or countries. 

http://doit.gmu.edu/staffSection.asp?page=telepresence

 

I’m happy to chat or connect you with one of the folks on our Learning Space Design team, who routinely work with staff in Facilities, the Registrar and the Learning Environments Group to ensure that we are meeting instructional need, even the forward looking need.  J

 

Best,

Sharon

Sharon, thanks for sharing. The methodology and way you have defined and shared the standards is definitely something we could use to make some improvement at our university.

 

We are in the final stages of construction of a very technology-rich business school building, opening in August.  I would be happy to connect you with the right people to discuss what they have done.

Are you issuing an iPad to all your faculty or are you going to equip the room with an iPad that stays there all the time?

 

Do you have a plan in place to prevent, or control, a student with an iPad from connecting to the Apple TV and showing the class their screen?

Our new Health Sciences Building is being designed with an all wireless aolution, based on Apple TV. No Teacher stations, Extron/Crestron controls. 

 

Building is scheduled for use January 2014. I am open to a conversation about.  

 

All faculty will be issued either an iPad or Windows laptop. We have found a wireless vendor that has a solution for the control of the Apple TV, we are using Meraki AP's in the classroom. Meraki (Division of Cisco) is providing us a control dashboard to manage all of our  Bonjour clients, including Apple TV.

The windows laptop will connect to Apple TV?  I thought Apple TV was Apple devices only.  We will not have the ability to issue all faculty a tablet so will need to support BYOD for tablets in the classroom and can’t dictate all Apple or all Android or all Windows tablets. We are looking for a solution to get the tablet screen to the projector and also have the tablet take remote control of the podium computer.

Take a serious look at the Polyvision Interactive Eno Boards. They are fantastic.  Also consider Samsung Galaxy 10.1 Note.  It is a must for business students.

“We are all teachers and learners—not only full and part time faculty members, but also each and every staff member.  Many of us teach in dormitories, dining halls, administrative offices, and on campus buses.  We teach through every interaction we have with those who live on and work on the campus, with visitors, and with the general public.  We must remember that we are all the faces of higher education.”

This harkens back to the discussion we recently had about faculty’s use or non-use of what we provide. There was a big push to put document cameras in classrooms awhile back. I’ve got a box of them in storage, no one (only a few used them)……
