We are nearing the completion of the installation of Microsoft Perceptive Pixel (PPI) touch display units in 60 conference rooms and training spaces in the Education Center and Education Center West.
The PPI display will provide innovative and interactive presentation options. They were installed to modernize our conference rooms and training rooms and to provide a showcase for what can be used in classrooms.
The PPI devices are Windows 8, multi-touch enabled devices that allow using your fingers or a keyboard to interact or write on the screen. In addition you can connect and share your screen from a Windows or Macintosh laptop to the PPI display device. IPads can also connect but need a software app downloaded to the iPad before that is possible. The devices are setup with a standard software package.
The PPI project supports LACOE goals to implement 21st Century learning experiences and the organization-wide green initiative to reduce our use of paper.
You will, however be required to attend training before using the devices and getting support on them.
Visit the site and register for the training opportunity that best fits your schedule. All trainings will be from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon in EC 107 with the first date being July 17, 2014.
