Educational institutions are increasingly embracing technology in the classroom as a means for improving academic achievement. Various digital technologies have been introduced in education over the years, beginning with projectors and televisions, later computers and smart boards, and finally video- and web-conferencing and the Internet. Unfortunately, these classroom technologies rarely complement each other, and the level of complexity to schedule and use the multitude of available devices make it difficult for even the most motivated educators to integrate technology into their lesson plans. Come and learn how AMX enables hundreds of education institutions nationwide to build an integrated technology infrastructure that extends from the electronic classroom to the institution-wide network to digital media distribution complete with centralized technology management tools. Take your technology management to the next level with AMX!
