Collaborative Tech Talk: Touchless Technology to Support Education During the Pandemic

One way or another, back to school season is coming, but this fall is shaping up to be the start of a school year like no other. David Lopez, Senior Manager of Strategic Alliances at ScreenBeam, spoke about the challenges facing schools across the country in how to return kids to learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. Whether it’s through online learning, in class, or some mixture of the two, safety is paramount. If schools open their doors, how can they use technology to limit touchpoints in the classroom without losing the learning experience? And maybe there are even opportunities to make improvements.

“The craft of perfected teaching is students and teachers together in the classroom,” Lopez said. “You want to be able to collaborate and learn and share. If you are not in the classroom, it’s difficult for a teacher to recognize nuances in student reactions if you are on a computer.” And while there will be many instances where schools start the year online or do a mixture of in-class and online learning, they still need to prepare for what that classroom experience looks like, and that’s where ScreenBeam’s solutions can help.

“ScreenBeam works closely with school districts across the country,” Lopez said. “We partner with Microsoft and the technology used in the classroom. We’ve done a lot of recent work on our Chromebook solutions with Classroom Commander for Chrome. We also have Classroom Commander for Windows 10. With ScreenBeam, we’re looking to provide that zero-touch wireless presentation solution for learning spaces.”
