In an effort to address the need for a shift in learning setups to accommodate the growing needs of students and educational institutions, Epson introduces the HyFlex Classroom setup, a hybrid-flexible classroom created to support the simultaneous teaching of in-person and online learners by reflecting real-time changes directly on the screen.
The method involves using interactive projectors to display educational materials on the blackboard, screen, or classroom wall so that teachers may utilize them as visual aids and freely comment on the information to further explain it.
A secondary projection (optional setup) at the rear of the room allows the teacher to keep an eye on and supervise the pupils when they are at home. While this is going on, local students may use the annotation function of the video conferencing program to observe and annotate on their own screens using their computers connected to the main interactive projector, seeing real-time changes and annotations displayed on the screen.
Epson feels privileged to have contributed to the innovation that will lead to the change of our educational system. “Our company will remain committed to empowering the brilliant minds of tomorrow through our flexible and easy-to-adapt technology to help ensure successful online learning experiences,” said Ed Bonoan, Marketing Division Head of Epson Philippines. “As we continue to recover from the effects of the pandemic and face the new normal.
Epson advises using its whole product range, including the interactive projector, ELPDC21 document camera, multifunction printer, and an optional entry-level projector, to get the most out of this setup’s capabilities and possibilities.
Epson’s Interactive Projectors Open Up Endless Possibilities
Epson’s interactive projectors enable this hybrid-flexible arrangement, which enables seamless student and instructor collaboration. These projectors are outfitted with cutting-edge technology and made to identify full-touch motions for simpler turning, zooming, moving, and drawing operations. Students and professors can freely annotate on the projected picture or screen using an interactive pen and/or their fingers, serving as a digital whiteboard.
Epson’s interactive projectors are designed with functionality that enables them to be projected on any flat surface without the need for a dedicated board, making them simple to operate. Additionally, they generate vibrant, natural color, ensuring readability and a broader field of vision for kids in the classroom. These 3LCD projectors may also be stretched to a flexible display up to 300″ in size without lowering the clarity or quality of the information being projected.
The wireless connectivity of the interactive projectors enables pupils at a school to instantaneously project what is seen on the screen of their mobile device using the Epson iProjection App. Without using a personal computer, teachers may also instantaneously store the presentation materials with notes on the projector and deliver them straight to the students afterward. Teachers only need to enter the recipients’ email addresses into the projector and click “send.”
The pandemic brought about a change in learning environments, and while educational institutions have acknowledged the necessity for online blended learning, they have also consistently raised concerns about its efficacy and their willingness to adopt such setups for longer periods of time. The introduction of this new Hyflex Classroom will guarantee that educational institutions have the chance to adapt their system and operation to meet the changing demands of the students as the nation struggles to recover from the epidemic. Additionally, the seamless qualities of Epson’s interactive projectors make them the ideal partner for hybrid learning environments, according to Ed Bonoan.
