From makerspaces to BYOD, more universities are acknowledging how growth-edge AV technologies are influencing not just the student experience but pedagogy as well. “Digital humanities” and “active learning” are the catchphrases du jour. Just watch the faces of freshman as a tenured professor pops in a VHS tape. Digital natives want agile, high-tech tools that prepare them for real-world careers. In turn, teachers are using GenY’s hyper-connectivity as an advantage—weaving technology into their syllabi that support active learning exchanges.

In part II of the BYOD series, we will explore the benefits of BYOD and why you or your company may be a fan of BYOD for collaboration and conferencing.
