Recently, Huawei has debuted IdeaHub, which simplifies the transformation of online teaching at an International Chinese School in Brazil. It is a group of new Huawei’s intelligent collaboration device that includes productivity tools for the smart office, bundles intelligent writing, HD video conferencing, wireless sharing, and more.
Huawei IdeaHub’s products bring functions such as an electronic whiteboard, interactive large screen, HD video conferencing, helped the educational institution reduce the impact of distance education on learning, teaching, and research, and effectively deliver online courses amid lockdown restrictions.
It also provides an intelligent remote video and collaboration experience for healthcare, government, enterprise, as well as education teams. And allows the team members of different regions to engage in immersive face-to-face communication and collaborate across physical distances.
After the pandemic forced lessons online, teachers of the Chinese, English, and Portuguese-speaking school struggled to effectively engage students through traditional digital tools. Limited sharing functions and small cameras made it challenging to display teaching materials and maintain students′ enthusiasm, and impossible to teach classes such as PE and dance.
With Huawei IdeaHub, International Chinese School (ICS) has overcome these challenges and made its classes more interactive. The intelligent recognition function of the whiteboard now helps teachers write freely and neatly for students to see by identifying Chinese characters, letters, numbers, formulas, and mind maps, while third-party software enables them to send homework to students′ tablets from the IdeaHub and share students’ work through the wireless projection function.
“Huawei IdeaHub makes classrooms smarter, providing a great space for teaching and boosting students’ learning enthusiasm. More importantly, it breaks the geographical restrictions, so that more students can enjoy high-quality education resources,” says Yuan Aiping (ICS President)
The built-in meeting system of IdeaHub not only enables seamless remote teaching but also provides AI functions such as acoustic baffle to eliminate external noise. This, along with the precise sound pickup capability, improves course recordings.
In addition to regular teaching, ICS organizes regular remote teaching seminars for its teachers in Brazil and China. In the past, teachers could only use computers to display PowerPoint slides. Now, the bidirectional collaboration function of IdeaHub allows teachers to write on the electronic whiteboard and communicate in real-time, improving the efficiency of seminars.
