Use Rolling TV Stands to Help Enhance Learning on a Tight Budget
Do more with less. This is the challenge facing virtually every school, particularly when it comes to in-classroom technology.
Not everyone learns the same way, but strong visuals enhance learning for most students. That’s why TVs and interactive white boards are common tools for today’s teachers. However, keeping classrooms equipped with the latest technology might quickly break the budget.
Cut Costs with Shared Resources
With a rolling TV cart for flat-screen TVs, a school can keep technology expenditures in check by sharing displays and interactive white boards among a number of classrooms. When the lesson plan calls for A/V resources, the teacher simply wheels a height-adjustable TV stand in front of students to make learning more engaging and exciting. And by using the built-in adjustments such as height and tilt that are found on many rolling TV stands, the teacher can ensure all students have a clear view of the screen. This isn’t possible with conventional projectors.
Add Flexibility to Lesson Delivery
Mount a display to a rolling TV stand for flat-screen TVs and now you have a mobile learning aid the teacher can roll to the back of a classroom for a small-group breakout discussion. Active participation by students can help increase confidence, retention and critical thinking. Or, disguise learning as entertainment with A/V games and quizzes, Jeopardy-style.
Interactive Boards, the Newest Advancement
Even smart TVs have their limitations…now the latest technology adds new dimensions to learning. Interactive white boards are tablet-like touchscreen displays measuring 65” and larger. Some schools may even use them to replace white boards at the front of the class. However, because these boards can cost thousands of dollars, it makes good budget sense to mount one on a rolling TV cart to share it between two or more classrooms. Such boards can be quite heavy; it’s necessary to use a heavy-duty TV stand to accommodate the board’s width and weight, while allowing for smooth rolling over carpeting and thresholds.
Technology is changing education by leaps and bounds, but smart strategies that use the budget wisely with accessories such as rolling TV stands for flat-screen TVs enable most schools to create a fun and stimulating learning environment for all students.
