The high-tech world of corporate training and video conferencing has progressed significantly in the last couple of decades. Luckily, now the price is coming down on much of this technology and we are seeing more and more of it in our schools and public education system. Previously we saw all the high-tech gear going into private universities, and now we are starting to see it in our high schools.
This is extremely wonderful and helps our teachers stay efficient, comply with the “No Child Left behind” Act, and makes learning more enjoyable and fun for the students. At the high school level this translates into better performance by students, as well as fewer high-school drop outs. Therefore, one could say it’s all good.
One company, SMART Technologies, has a number of revolutionary technologically advanced educational hardware and software, which is making learning easier at all levels. Corporations like these tools too, as they provide educational solutions and thus, are welcomed in the World of Corporate America, and much as they are needed in our school systems.
It is great to see our education sector borrowings such corporate technologies which are being used for communication and training, to make our kids smarter and better prepared for the real world. Today, much of this is possible because of the economies of scale and the fact that the technologies have become less expensive than in previous years.
The recession has also prompted many companies to look elsewhere for customers besides the corporate market. In the United States and in other countries when there is a recession, people turn towards education to train the next generation to solve the problems that have been created. Due to these factors education is capitalizing on the high-tech world of corporate training. Please consider all this.
