Classroom Agility

ScreenBeam Classroom Commander creates a wireless environment so teachers fluidly inhabit their entire classroom space. Teachers interact with the lesson being displayed, monitor individual behavior, identify issues quickly, and help off-task students refocus—without interrupting instruction. With teacher permission, students show their work right from their desks or untether from the system and present live at the classroom display. And it’s all done quickly and easily, so teachers make the most of valuable instructional time.

Teacher Controlled Technology

Teachers are always in control with ScreenBeam Classroom Commander. Direct from their device, teachers monitor student screens and active applications in realtime, present their screen or give selected students the ability to present. Teachers can even blank all student screens simultaneously to gain classroom attention. Teachers easily drive URL’s across all student screens. With complete control of the devices, teachers ensure that students stay on task and learn at the same pace.

Interactive Learning and Collaboration

With powerful interactive features, ScreenBeam Classroom Commander enhances student engagement and learning with real-time integration of wireless touch displays, touch-back support, and wireless inking (native in Microsoft programs). Students can project content onto the classroom interactive display from their desks. Teachers annotate comments and questions directly onto the student screen from the classroom display. Students collaborate with each other on their devices. All while teachers monitor each student’s progress with the ability to private message individual students or groups.

Industry Standard for Wireless Display

ScreenBeam solutions are used as the validation platform for wireless display functionality by companies like Microsoft, Intel, and leading PC OEM and device companies. Actiontec is Microsoft’s lead partner for wireless display and worked with Microsoft to develop wireless display capabilities in Windows 8.1 and 10 with Continuum. ScreenBeam is an official development partner for Windows 10 Continuum and is deployed in 1,600 Microsoft campus conference rooms.

Because of Actiontec’s deep roots as the industry leader, and our ongoing investment in supporting industry device manufacturers, you can be assured that you’re deploying the most broadly compatible, feature rich wireless display platform.
