Just as the internet has opened up endless avenues for education and connecting people with one another, videoconferencing has made distance learning classrooms possible — environments where students can learn from and communicate with instructors and peers from all across the globe.
Students from Pius XI High School and Wisconsin International Academy are taking an exciting adventure into distance learning this semester, holding their first Cloud Classroom program and cultural exchange.
Hosted at Professional Audio Designs’ new headquarters, students and instructors meet one night each week to video conference with Tsinghua Experimental School in Shenzen, China. Students learn about each other’s culture and cover unique characteristics of their cultures every week. This semester’s Cloud Classroom lessons include a fashion show, a cooking class, and what it’s like to be a Chinese citizen living in the United States.
It has been a little bit of time between updates since we moved to our new location. We have moved in but there remains a bit more construction before we are finally settled. We have also been busy with a number of projects for both our consulting and installation divisions. We will be posting some updates over the next month showcasing these various projects, including a new performance venue in Adams-Friendship and installation of multiple AV systems for a new corporate headquarters just outside of La Crosse, WI.
In the meantime, many of the new spaces are coming along nicely. We have a new kitchen for both employees and clients to use for meetings or to enjoy good food. Our conference room, think tank, and hoteling office area look great. We look forward to welcoming many of our loyal clients to come see the facility when completed.
We hope everyone has a happy holiday and are excited for the up coming year.
