Create your ideal learning space with collaboration displays from avocor
Over the last 20 years, we have witnessed an interactive revolution in the classroom, seeing teaching move from dusty chalkboards to large format displays. Teaching and technology have converged and teacher centric role delivering ‘rote learning’ has morphed into a more collaborative one. Interactive devices, large and small, are now regarded as ‘must have’ tools to facilitate the core teaching and learning function of demonstration and modelling.
Avocor creates market-leading, interactive, collaborative display solutions, specifically designed for the needs of the teacher and students in the classroom. Our core ethos is to deliver solutions to market which are simple and easy to use, therefore maximising technology adoption across educational environments. As pupils are surrounded by digital devices in the home and at school, it’s part of everyday life, the principle of the Avocor solution is to integrate the display at the front of the class into a more collaborative teaching environment. We listened carefully to the issues that were faced by teachers of integrating technology and the frustrations of technology adoption, ongoing training as well as software renewal costs, create a range of interactive displays that overcame all these barriers to teachers being able to deliver fantastic teaching in the classroom.
With future developments in education centred around digital content, leading to collaborative learning environments in the classroom and virtual ‘at home’ study, Avocor are committed to creating technology that will play a vital part in enabling this learning shift
