Learning Environments

At Georgia College, teaching is #1!  Research shows that active learning classrooms and the use of pedagogy that supports active learning improves student learning outcomes, grades, and engagement.  The campus has a growing number of classrooms enhanced with technology to support teaching, as well as active learning spaces in classrooms and collaborative commons areas for students.

Active learning spaces are classrooms and collaborative commons areas that are furnished with collaboration tools, such as whiteboards, Wi-Fi TEC monitors, and pod seating arrangements. View examples of active learning spaces and the associated furnishings on our campus.

Classrooms enhanced with technology have one or more Wi-Fi TV monitors that allow for collaboration.  There are 2 applications that can be used to collaborate using these monitors. Infocus LiteShow4 (also referred to as TEC) and AirServer Connect

AirServer Connect

There are times when you need to show content to your class to engage your audience, using your portable device. With AirServer you can wirelessly beam your device's display to your Mac or PC and from there to your projector, SMART board or HDTV.

AirServer also supports multiple simultaneous connections, so one or more students could mirror their devices to share their ideas and their work with the rest of the class. You can monitor what your students are working on and encourage collaboration. Check out these AirServer features for Education.

Learn more on how to connect your PC or IOS device using the AirServer Quick Guide. NOTE: It is recommended that you turn off your devices sleep mode prior to using AirServer.  If your device goes into sleep mode, you will be automatically disconnected from the monitor.

LiteShow4

 A small app, Infocus LiteShow4, allows the sharing feature.  The app, available for download from the Unify > GC Software folder, allows for sharing of one to four device monitors.  Sharing is best using a laptop computer. Users with tablets and mobile phones may experience some limitations.
