Technology is transforming the way in which we live and work in surprising and unexpected ways. Computing power and cloud connectivity, coupled with mobile devices means we can now walk into a meeting room and share content from one device to another totally wirelessly. Or from one location to another without even having to give it much thought. Touchscreen technology is redefining classrooms and collaboration software is changing how we do business.
Getting stuff done in today’s organisations is very complex: teams use different tools, different operating systems, different displays – making it especially difficult for departments to collaborate.
Being able to share content no matter what the device has always been fundamental to collaboration and the sharing of great ideas. At DisplayNote we've recognised this need and we're happy to announce that students can now join a DisplayNote session on a Chromebook or Chrome enabled Browser.
With BYOD expanding into Bring Your Own Anything, with smart watches and even connected eyewear in recent times, businesses really need to get a handle on what this means for the workplace. It won't work to just hope it sorts itself out, if you expect your employees to continue reaping the benefits of BYOD, you need to be proactive in facilitating this.
We have been thinking recently about ways to optimize the creative classroom with the technology and other tools you may have to hand. Last week I discussed the different ways you can make use of your device camera in lessons. That got me thinking about other ways to make use of technology with more traditional tools and resources you may have to hand. So I have provided 3 simple ideas on ways to make your creative classroom even more creative, without the need to be a technology whizz or spending time preparing for lessons...
With many schools and organisations rolling out BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) and BYOA (Bring Your Own Apps), there naturally comes with it, great opportunities for getting creative in a lesson or a meeting. Utilising the device's camera is one such way to get creative. We have seen this a lot with DisplayNote users and wanted to give a few examples of using your device's camera in a lesson or presentation to make them more engaging.
