PPE Guide

Safety and Sanitization

By recommendation of the CDC, many local and state governments have mandated the use of PPE and sanitization requirements within communities, schools, places of work, and public areas. With many K12 and higher education institutions opening in a hybrid capacity, it is important to integrate solutions that will keep students, teachers, and administrators safe with the use of health monitoring, sanitization, and personal device cleaning solutions.

It's more important than ever for students to be equipped with the knowledge and skills to solve tough problems, gather and evaluate evidence, and make sense of information. These are skills learned by studying Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. According to the Department of Commerce, STEM-related careers have demonstrated higher growth rates and salaries compared to non-STEM careers. However, only (1) in (5) college students pursuing a STEM/STEAM career felt that they were well-prepared entering higher education showing how essential STEM/STEAM curriculums are for primary learning in K12 institutions.

One area within STEM/STEAM that is gaining traction in educational environments is AR/VR. Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) continue to evolve as impactful classroom or hybrid-learning tools. Teachers can immerse students in complex topics or places for a guided educational experience within a contextual lesson plan without ever leaving the classroom. Virtual field trips and interactive learning programs using VR & AR technologies work particularly well to engage students within STEM/STEAM curriculums in both K12 and higher education

A robust infrastructure is the backbone of a well-functioning, optimized school system. Unfortunately, most schools have the same bandwidth as the average household. With 70% of schools shifting to digital textbooks and the growth in student devices, many schools are due for a network refresh - even an upgrade of broadband services. Choosing the right networking, infrastructure, and broadband service solutions will also enable administrators to manage IoT devices including door locks, phones, emergency alert systems, interactive displays, digital signage, and much more that is essential to student safety.

From the classroom to the auditorium to the home workspace, ProAV's ability to inspire communication and collaboration can revolutionize the learning experience for a tech-savvy generation of students. ProAV solutions for K12 and higher education classrooms can shape the way educators teach and students learn. Interactive display solutions enable in-person and virtual collaborative learning while digital signage displays can facilitate communication and instruction when students return to campuses full-time. D&H can help you customize a ProAV strategy for any school.

Gaming isn't just a hobby. Esports programs teach students valuable life skills and can even lead to scholarship opportunities and new career paths. Whether it's part of an in-school curriculum or an after-school program, esports can help students develop leadership skills, problem-solving abilities, digital literacy, and knowledge retention. According to a study by the National School Boards Association, it even boosts school attendance and GPA, particularly for at-risk students. With millions of dollars available in college scholarships for esports programs, more students are taking their gaming careers to a higher level every year. This ultra-competitive stage creates demand for higher-end products, dedicated networks, and greater infrastructure.
