February is Career and Technical Education month. The month began with National Job Shadow Day and will end with Entrepreneurship Week the 19th-26th.
Hiscall offers a wide range of products and solutions to benefit the education sector including Access Control and Audio/Visual Products.
Hiscall’s Access Control partners Keyscan and RS2 produce products that are easy to use without compromising the safety of the students. Access Control allows a facility to control exactly who will be able to have access to a building and at what times. Access Control cards allow students, staff, and faculty to be free of keys. If a card is lost it is simply a matter of programming to disable the card from being able to open any doors on campus.
Audio/Visual includes brands such as Numonics and their interactive white boards which allows more student participation in the lesson. Students can participate at the board or watch the presentation come alive from the instructor’s computer. LifeSize and Polycom Video Conferencing enable educators to draw in presenters and experts from wherever they are right into the classroom to enrich the discussion. Projectors and sound equipment complete the experience. Students can experience the world and other cultures right from their classroom
