When our customers speak, we listen. And that’s exactly how our new release of features evolved from pipe dream to reality.
In today’s 21st Century classrooms, flexible learning spaces and the ability to seamlessly move between digital resources during a lesson are crucial to a successful learning environment.
Guest access to Vivi has been made easy thanks to our Guest Code feature, which allows a temporary code to be generated that gives external visitors the same capabilities and access to the Vivi App features as a presenter (for the specific room), apart from being able to create more guest codes.
Guest presenters can access your Vivi-enabled displays without having to waste time being registered as a user, making your class or meeting more efficient. All they’ll need is to be connected to your schools’ WiFi network.
With the release of Vivi 2.2, changes have been made to the App interface to give teachers added control over feature settings at an individual presenter level. These changes particularly benefit Vivi users in shared classrooms and prevent teachers from having to inherit settings from previous presenters.
Further to this, we have also optimized the Vivi Chromebook experience, improving performance on these popular machines and delivering on our commitment to be a truly cross-platform solution.
Last month, a group of IT Managers from a range of Victorian independent schools met at Scotch College for the annual Victorian ICT Network for Education (VINE) meeting. Four IT Managers shared their personal experiences of navigating the changes in school IT support over the past ten years and get set for some exciting trends on the horizon.
The Vivi app is intuitive to use and accessing its features are only a couple clicks away.
However, we know teachers are multitaskers and like their students, are ongoing learners of technology.
So, we've prepared three posters for you to hang in your classrooms and meeting spaces to assist staff, students and visitors.
How can you seamlessly integrate Vivi into your daily lesson plans and ensure that it appropriately supports the lesson objectives, curriculum, unit and cross-curriculum priorities, such as Digital Learning?
Here is an example taken from the Humanities discipline area, specifically from the History curriculum, where students are focusing on the cultural practices of the Inca Civilization.
The 21st Century classroom promises so much. Fulfilling this promise requires schools to harness the power of in-classroom technology to deliver new and more effective ways of teaching and learning. Wireless presentation systems, which allow teachers and students to mirror their devices to a shared display, go some of the ways to enabling this. But Vivi goes further – it’s been purpose-built for education, with features and functionality designed specifically to help teachers keep students engaged and deliver 21st Century learning outcomes.
It’s no secret that digital technology has become an essential part of education. Computers and other IT equipment are enabling fantastic new ways to teach and learn. This technology is constantly evolving, bringing with it a growing array of opportunities for schools to create smarter classrooms. But delivering on these opportunities isn’t always simple.
