Looking at the rolling casters and multi-use, media-savvy functionality of Ergotron’s Teach Well, I’m reminded of that ad featuring a robotic, mobile TV monitor that allows a boy stuck in the hospital to be a full classroom participant. The point of the ad is that, when used intelligently, technology lets us overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles.
Ergotron’s clever Teach Well employs technology to do just that. In this case, the obstacles are desks with poor ergonomics and clumsy classroom media infrastructure. By consolidating multi-media tools into a single space, Teach Well lets teachers access laptop and CPU, keyboard and mouse, portable document cameras, projection devices, and more: “Un-tether from a desk or podium and move wherever needed to deliver a collaborative curriculum.”
The unit’s easy maneuverability is a great complement to its plug-in/plug-out functionality. The sit/stand option makes it easy for teachers to use it as a small desk—for both prep time and to create a casual classroom dynamic—as well as a standing lectern/podium for traditional lecturing and/or as control center for multi-media displays.
Teach Well’s one-hand, under-desk adjustment feature enables easy control of most portable document cameras. The unit works with on-board projectors as well as remote displays and projection devices
