Education technology has exploded in the last decade. And with the onset of COVID-19, technology integration in schools has only accelerated. We are not short on technology products or solutions.
All students need to have the ability to access their teachers and their lessons. Yet, Samsung—long the leader in digital displays—believes that education needs smart and sensible solutions that truly transform teaching and learning. EdSurge recently spoke with Chris Mertens, Samsung’s VP of US Sales, Display Division, about where education technology is heading and how Samsung is working to revolutionize it.
EdSurge: What are the main technology needs that you’re seeing for remote learning right now?
Mertens: First, the pandemic demonstrated the need to push out high-band access to all teachers and learners across the country. Students need to be connected now more than ever. The ability to communicate instantly not only keeps students engaged in the moment, but provides limitless access to knowledge. Then, there is the one-to-one device requirement for all students. This is not a new trend, but it was accelerated due to the pandemic. Placing technology in the hands of our students helps them prepare for today’s lesson and their future tomorrow.
