In life, the only constant is change. Just as we at Steelcase have worked hard to adapt to the changing world of work and respond with forward-looking solutions that will help our clients, our educational technology arm PolyVision is actively looking to tailor tools to support the classroom of the future.
This week, PolyVision is exhibiting at the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Annual Conference in San Diego. There, the team is encouraging educators, administrators and technologists to “unlearn” any preconceived notions about what a classroom should be and think about what a classroom could be. As part of this demonstration, the PolyVision booth features an Unlearning Dream Wall where participants can bring their visions to life through animation on its interactive whiteboard, known as eno®. Additionally, conference attendees can experience the future of collaborative learning at one of the media:scape stations where multiple devices can easily display content on a single or double screen.
The One Day film, which was created to commemorate the anniversary celebration this year, asked young people to share their thoughts and vision for the future. This week at ISTE, Chloe Whygum, a now 12-year-old from Denver who appeared in the documentary, shared her perspective on the future of education. She emphasized the desire she and her fellow students have for more engaging and colorful content, whether it be through video, audio or other multimedia content.
