The right teaching tools for the job
Nothing is more discouraging than to be ill-prepared. Effective lecture halls and classrooms have the right tools when they're needed and where they're used.
SMARTdesks teaching tools are designed to fit your specific requirements and coordinate with our furniture and all meet the same stringent quality standards.
Good visual presentations require correctly-sized projection screens with engineered reflectivity and demand marker boards that erase easily and low-odor pens.
Privacy for computer testing
may be acheived by using portable, free-standing or desk-top privacy panels or polarized monitor privacy filters.
Proper classroom lighting for projected presentations requires that controls are within reach and provisions are made for lighting student tasks.
Effective Training Relies on the Principles of Learning Ergonomics
SMARTdesks Ergonomic Accessories are key components in effective training centers - providing the best possible user interface between students and their computers.
It is proven that comfort and utility work in concert to foster accuracy and increased productivity in the classroom as well as long-term cognitive retention.
In addition to desks and chairs that fit the student to the task at hand, optional ergonomically adjustable accessories - keyboard and monitor arms, wrist, arm and foot rests - can be crucial to intensive computer-based-training.
|Cable and Wire Management Security Components||
In Wired Classrooms, Wires Rule
Managing connectivity is a major issue facing both the teaching and IT staff. Lost power and broken network cable connections are the cause of many computer problems.
Hiding cables from view and protecting them from damage is only part of the solution. Cables must also remain accessible to permit change-out of equipment and reconfiguration.
Nevertheless, it is obvious that concealing everything not part of the learning experience goes a long way to focus attention on the components - monitor and input devices - that are.
SMARTdesks can provide many of the components you need to organize cables and achieve an uncluttered, low-maintenance, hazard-free learning center.
Securing Equipment and Data
When CRT monitors and CPU cases were first introduced as teaching tools, their cumbersome size and weight were a major deterent to theft.
Light-weight laptops, LCD displays and small-form-factor CPUs are an easier target. SMARTdesks' cable locks are a simple and cost effective solution.
Protecting computer equipment and systems from vandalism, software theft and unauthorized access to data is a much more costly problem and much harder to prevent.
SMARTdesks offers data protection solutions ranging from locking laptop drawers, monitor shrouds and flipIT® Kits to sophisticated electronic locking systems that can limit and track access without affecting user privacy.
