PRO AV TECHNOLOGY has always had a close relationship with teaching and training. Even before the electronic age, the AV industry was in large part driven by education. That fact remains, though the industry has now significantly broadened into other vertical markets.

The place of AV in education is tied to pedagogy. Throughout AV history, the industry has served the teaching profession to augment physical pedagogy. This occurred early on by allowing sound to be recorded and played back, enabling images to be enlarged, and ultimately allowing audio and video communication to occur over great distances.

The new center of the universe

During the last 50 years, and particularly in the last 20, a revolution developed in education, re-centering the educational universe from the lecturer to the learner. While this makes perfect sense now, it took a while for some teachers to get out of their one-way, face-front teaching style. Instead of sitting in chairs, staring glazed-eyed at a blackboard and lecturer, there are now group projects, group discussions, and learning games. The learner-centered model calls for more interaction and more self-paced, self-directed learning. All of this change was fueled by the onset of the information age and personal computers.
