For years flexible learning spaces have undergone rapid evolutions to accommodate new styles of learning. AV technology is at the center of these changes both as the impetus to create more interactive classroom experiences and as a reflection of the tools and knowledge sources central to learning. Now this technology is even more essential in a remote-learning landscape in the pandemic.
