Farragut High School

Optimizing Teaching and Learning Experiences in Virtual and Hybrid Classes

Overview about Farragut High School

Overview

 

Home to an advanced world languages program, Farragut High School is widely recognized for preparing its students to navigate an increasingly diverse and dynamic world. However, in the spring of 2020, the global pandemic forced the high school to suspend all on-site activities and brought about new challenges with teaching world languages when schools reopened in the fall.

To ensure continuity of learning and promote student engagement in her virtual and hybrid classes, Señora Allison Maldonado, an Advanced Placement (AP) Spanish teacher with more than 30 years of teaching experience, turned to Logitech Solutions for Education.

CHALLENGES

Equipped with just a laptop with an integrated webcam, transitioning to virtual and hybrid classes posed some challenges. When teaching from home, environmental factors such as low-light and the noise and distractions complicated her ability to provide the optimal learning experiences.

When schools reopened in the fall, Señora Maldonado needed to be seen and heard by students in the class and online. However, her classroom was not equipped with video and audio capabilities to support her desire to move, capture the whiteboard, or interact in a way that all students felt included. In addition, having to spend so many hours using a laptop with a trackpad was not always comfortable or efficient. 

SOLUTION

For teaching at home, Señora Maldonado invested in the Logitech Brio 4K Webcam to use for video collaboration and as a document camera. To improve audio, she chose the Logitech Zone Wireless headset. For her classroom, she chose the Logitech MeetUp for video collaboration. At her workstation you will find the Logitech K780 Multi-device Wireless Keyboard, an MX Anywhere 2S Mouse, a Spotlight presenter, a Logitech Crayon for digital whiteboarding, a WONDERBOOM 2 speaker to share Spanish music, and a Logitech Slim Folio for her iPad.

RESULT

With Logitech Solutions for Education, Señora Maldonado is able to extend access to her advanced Spanish courses,maximize her productivity and optimize learning experiences for all students, regardless of location. Logitech’s video collaboration solutions dramatically improve the quality of video seen by students, coworkers, and administrators. In addition to providing her with the freedom to move around and share her whiteboard to keep students engaged. The headset helps her to hear and be heard by students clearly when teaching from home, while blocking out noise and distractions so that she can stay focused on students and the lessons.With more time being spent at her computer, Logitech’s peripherals have helped improve her comfort, maximize efficiency and productivity, while helping to infuse creativity into her lessons.
