Lifesize Demonstrates Value Of Videoconferencing In Education
Uniforms have been bought, pencil cases fully stocked and the children are all set to return to school. And so, with term time beginning once again, Lifesize has set about illustrating the various benefits of using videoconferencing to enhance the classroom experience.
A leading provider of video conferencing technology, the company has recently published a guide entitled ‘Six reasons why video conferencing is essential for education’, supplemented by a blog site on its website. Within this Lifesize outlines how videoconferencing can become an essential tool in enabling distance learning.
Government investments and Lifesize’s own grants programme have made distance learning a real possibility; children in rural areas or university students who find themselves a long way from the lecture hall can now use videoconferencing to get access to quality schooling wherever they may be.
Furthermore, with its HD quality, the technology can enhance the curriculum by bridging gaps and allowing students to experience places – such as museums or wildlife reserves – as if they were actually there. It also supports global collaboration, meaning students can easily communicate with different people and cultures around the world, breaking down the physical walls of the classroom.
With its ease of use, cost effectiveness and the fact it can be accessed on just about any device, Lifesize’s videoconferencing technology has the potential to transform the way children learn.
Whether it is a student that's unable to get to the classroom or it's students in the classroom learning in a new and interactive way, videoconferencing can enable and enhance education in a multitude of new and exciting ways.
