The Sticky Campus Roadshow  will showcase a range of collaborative tables that will help students engage in experiential learning scenarios across a range of subjects; from finance and management to anatomy with real and synthetic cadavers!  WorksZone tables from TeamMate with full connectivity integrated into the surface, or with surfaces that allow the whole area to be used for non-digital activities that still flourish with collaboration. This roadshow continues to use the same Kramer VIA wireless technology that has now been adopted by so many UK universities as a result of their roadshow engagement; as hosts or visiting workshop participants where they experienced the full-participation, intuitive, wireless collaboration from the student perspective.  Now add the e-polling, session recording, and student-engagement analytics introduced with the latest software release, and academics continue to have student-centric engagement for learning spaces across the campus. Ferco Seating - a UK company with a global specialism in auditorium for learning, cinema and sporting stadiums - enhance the cross-campus reach of the roadshow with their new Collaborative Wave development for large cohort spaces.  Utilising the same Kramer VIA technology, the Collaborative Wave supports both traditional front-of-class didactic instruction and small group collaborative learning.  Outside of taught hours, the Collaborative Wave supports self-directed learning, raising space utilisation levels. Inclusive Learning will be a key feature of the roadshow; assistive technology for those with learning differences, and a new concept in delivering short training videos for both these specialist hardware and software needs, and for essential productivity tools that will raise the digital capabilities for everyone; Word, Excel, OneNote, etc. will be provided by Wvyern Training Portal. Epson provide two noteworthy elements.  The front-of-class screen is provided by the WorksZone II Interactive table - a collaboration between TeamMate and Epson that features an Epson Ultra Short Throw projector to create a 72” interactive screen, but which also provides an interactive table that has to be used to be fully appreciated.   The roadshow lectern will  be equipped with an Epson Visualiser capable of capturing the content from an A3 area.  For too long educators have been constrained by the technical capabilities of visualisers seen as OHP replacements, instead of having their eyes and minds opened to the enriching of learning and teaching that visualisers should be delivering in EVERY teaching space.  We will open those eyes and minds! Writing Surfaces: Wireless technology is now invaluable to the collaborative learning process, as it allows access to research materials, VLE’s, and facilitates students co-designing learning objects.  But there remains a place for surfaces where writing and diagrams can be developed and shared by student groups, making thinking visible and providing time for reflection and iterations.  Writing surfaces provide big spaces for big ideas that can be expressed and explained, and which, when developed as part of a conversation, are more likely to be recalled in context at a later date.  And technology helps here too; who hasn’t got a phone or tablet with a camera that can capture these creative flows so they can become a digital record or instantly shown to other student groups in the room. TeacherBoards satisfy the needs for a wide range of styles, sizes and mobility of writing surfaces for both education and business, where increasingly wholes walls of writing surfaces are providing teams the foundations for innovating products and processes that drive business improvement.
