"Redesigning your Chemistry Laboratories" symposium at the 2008 Biennial Conference on Chemical Education (Bloomington, IN) documents the development of an entire class based on the LINK Systems hardware or "Classroom Management System".
The "classroom managment system" is the central technology in the room. It allows the instructor to display live demonstrations, DVDs, or anything on any computer to all computer monitors simultaneously. Therefore, each student has a front seat, and there is no back of the room. Students can write on a SmartBoard, and the writing is displayed simultaneously on all monitors. Computer based laboratory (CBL) equipment allows students to collect and share data from a wide range of instruments (temperature, pressure, mass, pH, conductivity, spectroscopy, and many others).
When someone envisions a computer classroom, they typically don't think of a library. With all of today's innovative and fast paced technologies, many colleges and universities are eagerly equipping their academic library classrooms with computers, laptops, and iPads. Instructional librarians are tasked with learning how to effectively teach in a classroom filled with this new technology. These same librarians are finding that the new classroom technologies, while providing new ways of educating students, also inherently cause distractions for their students as well. They find themselves asking several pertinent questions regarding their new teaching tools.
Applied Computer Systems, Inc. (ACS) has been in business for over 40 years and over those years has focused on engineering, selling and installing LINK System computer classroom management solutions. Our extensive clientele includes every branch of the United States military, government entities, corporations, hospitals, banks, airlines, universities, colleges, primary and secondary schools. Throughout the years we have installed the LINK System product line in a wide assortment of classrooms, consisting of classified and non-classified electronic classrooms military classrooms, Classroom XXI, simulation classrooms, language labs, conference rooms, chemistry classrooms, and the list goes on.
It is difficult for an instructor to maintain classroom order while teaching in a computer classroom - from kindergarten to adult students. The latter, used to independence, can be especially difficult to teach. Distractions of every kind interrupt the learning cycle regardless of the teaching method, subject, or environment. The amount of information that students must absorb in this highly technical world can be overwhelming.
Computer labs provide great opportunities for both students and instructors. Unfortunately, with all the students at their own computers, many students can become lost, confused, or distracted without a good way for the teacher to bring them all together. Teachers in control of their PC classrooms can teach more efficiently and effectively to make sure the students learn all they can.
Remote control what? This could easily bring to mind a hundred scenarios. But in a classroom management context, you look for ways to control the classroom computers and the surrounding environment.
