Up to 40% off Jabra headsets and PanaCast cameras that will keep the class engaged
When the COVID-19 quarantine began last year, K-12 schools, colleges, and universities were forced to quickly adapt to remote and hybrid learning models. This has continued into the 2020-21 school year, and educators are doing their best to provide a consistent means to educate their students effectively.
Teachers need to keep students engaged when teaching remotely, which brings unique challenges. In a Customer Database Survey in April 2020, Jabra found that 61% of teachers' time is now spent in virtual classes, with 3-4 hours each day in lectures with students. The survey also found that both teachers and students are experiencing frustrations:
• 44% of students are not satisfied
with the audio or video quality
of remote learning classes
• 54% of teachers find it difficult to
keep students’ attention
when remote teaching

PanaCast camera captures the classroom

The 180-degree view lets teachers take full advantage of white boards, teaching aids, and the space in the classroom to move around and keep students engaged. Jabra PanaCast is a plug-and-play camera, certified for Microsoft and all major UC platforms. And, if they need to change classrooms, its small size makes it easy to move to the next space.

Be confident that teachers can connect, with whatever equipment they are using; it is plug-and-play by bringing your own laptop. You can add on a hub or dock that also connects speaker, TV, power and internet, for a simple one-cable user interface. It has an integrated mounting bracket and a standard 1/4"-20 thread that can be used on a tripod; a wall mount and table stand are available as additional purchases.
Teachers will appreciate the 180° Panoramic view. They can take full advantage of white boards, teaching aids, and the space in the classroom to move around and keep students engaged. The PanaCast is reasonably priced ($695 MSRP) and offers a 2-year warranty.
When you combine the Jabra PanaCast with a Jabra Speak 750 speakerphone, it's an optimal video and audio experience that's like a face-to-face class.

Avcomm Solutions staffers have been celebrating college and high school graduations with their family members this month, and we have heard some great commencement speeches. Typical advice shared by graduation speakers is that the end of formal education doesn't have to be the end of learning. This is especially true today, as there are many opportunities to learn — from home — at our fingertips. And, many are available at no cost!
Learn a foreign language with the Duolingo app; iTunes U offers everything from Introduction to Psychology to Woodworking; Coursera is used by Fortune 500 companies for professional development; and YouTube videos are another way to learn everything from how to tie a bowtie to playing guitar and checking tire air pressure.
One of our employees likes Master Class, which offers online classes from experts. She especially likes the cooking and wine classes taught by Gordon Ramsey. Other employees take dance classes with their spouse; host foreign exchange students to learn about other cultures; and take golf lessons at a nearby municipal golf course.
The benefits of learning new languages, skills, sports and ideas have the potential for new relationships, world travels, career advancement, and more. Your brain also benefits from learning, because the neurons are stimulated and form more neural pathways, which slows aging.
With all of these advantages, and opportunities to learn, our advice is that today is the day to learn a new skill and invest in yourself. Now, go out there and make us proud!
'Tis the season for New Year's resolutions: to keep yourself accountable and give yourself something to strive for. According to usa.gov, some of the most common New Year's resolutions include drink less alcohol; eat healthy food; get a better education or job; get fit and lose weight; manage debt; manage stress; quit smoking; save money; help others.
Any of those sound familiar to you?
Each January we begin with great intentions, and the first few days we are careful to make the right choices. New gym memberships spike in January and the parking lots are crowded as the New Year's resolutions take hold. Then, for many of us, life gets in the way and we feel we are too busy or overwhelmed with daily demands to meet the challenges of these resolutions. We simply cannot fulfill the requirements and self-discipline needed to find success. And once again, our resolutions are tossed to the side, to be considered with regret at the next New Year's Eve party.
Make 2014 the year that you achieve a resolution! Keep yourself accountable by sharing your resolutions with friends or family, and then make a plan to achieve that goal in 2014. Break the resolution into small manageable goals, create a timeline and then make sure you stick to it! The best part of achieving those small goals is crossing them off your timeline; the progress is visible and satisfying.
In addition to the resolutions that most people make (according to usa.gov), here are three more to consider:
1. Keep learning! Identify one or two areas you would like to dig into deeper – could be work-related, or home-related, such as learn to cook a new type of food or how to do maintenance on your lawnmower. Read this article from Lifehack about how to cultivate the habit of lifelong learning.
2. Stay connected to family and friends across the country – make it a point to connect to a defined number of people each month – by phone, Skype, e-mail, or visit them! It is very easy for life to get consumed with the day-to-day minutiae but the connections that are maintained with a little bit of effort provide richness and satisfaction to life.
3. Take a break from technology. Yes, you read this right … put down your smartphones, laptops, video game controllers, and look away from your TVs. Go outside, talk to your neighbors, take your kid for a bike ride, clean your gutters! Take a step back from issues you can't control, and focus on those you can; your presence will be noticed, and without a doubt, great memories will be made.
Happy 2014 and here's to keeping those resolutions!
