Teacher conducts lessons whilst present in the school classroom, where they have all required resources and materials on hand. Pupils can fully participate in the class remotely or whilst being physically present in the school as well.
Hybrid classroom enables a lesson in three formats:
Teacher and all students are physically present in the classroom.
Teacher and a group of pupils are in the classroom; some pupils are joining remotely.
Teacher is in the classroom; all pupils are participating in the class remotely.
Based on our experience, we have created ready-to-implement sets of equipment for the practice room, enabling remote teaching.
- Large touch screen with electronic whiteboard function for making notes and showing multimedia content;
- Additional preview display screen showing images from the remote students’ cameras (optional LED display screen).
- A camera installed under the ceiling pointing at the teacher;
- Ceiling array microphone recording the teacher’s speech with unwanted noise cancelling function sounds (like rustle, hum and other noise in the space);
- Classroom sound system with AEC technology (acoustic echo cancellation);
- Dedicated video conferencing codec with application licence (such as Microsoft Teams Rooms) and a touch screen panel on the teacher’s desk.
- A computer or a tablet with a touch screen and an electronic pen for writing;
- A video conferencing application (such as Microsoft Teams) installed;
- A headset including headphones and a microphone with an ANC technology (active noise cancelling).
Remote class in a hybrid classroom – run-through:
Teacher is conducting the lesson whilst being physically in the classroom, having all required resources on hand. In order to conduct a hybrid lesson the teacher needs to have a computer with a video conferencing software installed.
A camera installed under the ceiling is pointing at the teacher and a large interactive touch screen. The screen is used for writing and showing presentations and multimedia materials.
Next to the interactive screen there is an additional preview display screen showing images from the remote students’ cameras. Thanks to this, the teacher can see the pupils in the classroom and remote students simultaneously.
Full schedule of lessons is logged in a calendar (such as Microsoft Teams). Thanks to this, students can see their lesson schedule once they log into the application, and the teacher sees a schedule of the lessons in this particular room on the touch panel on the desk (with the most current lesson highlighted).
The teacher can commence the lesson with one click on the touch panel – the audio-visual system in the room is turning on automatically, together with a class transmission online. Remote students can see the teacher and the content shared with them from the interactive screen (notes, presentation etc.) on their computer or tablet. Once unmuted by the teacher, the students can be heard by all participants – they can ask questions, give answers to the teacher’s questions and actively participate in the class. They can also edit the documents on notes on the interactive touchscreen together with the group in the class, collaborate in group activities and share their own screen with the teacher.
The lesson can be recorded and played in the future for students who were not able to participate in the class or can be used for material revision.
