What is IDEA?

IDEA stands for "Interactive Displays for Educational Applications".  Information Technology can provide faculty teaching in Burnell Hall and Hart Hall (1st floor) with access to any of 3 interactive whiteboard displays on mobile stands - a SMART 6065 (smartboard), a Google Jamboard, or an Avocor E-7520.

IDEA displays can potentially transform existing classroom spaces into active learning spaces, providing an opportunity for faculty and students to use innovative collaborative technology that will help inform future classroom space design at BSU, while also meeting the needs of instructors looking to implement active learning pedagogy in their teaching. Instructors can place students into working groups and utilize the interactive displays with mobile stands for group work activities, brainstorming sessions, presentation sharing, and more.

Reserve Displays

You may reserve an Avocor, SMART Board, or Google Jamboard interactive whiteboard display unit for a period of two weeks. The device will remain in your classroom for the two-week period.  When not in use, please place a provided cover over the whiteboard, which will keep it protected.

You may only loan out one device at a time, but you can loan out devices throughout the academic year. You will be contacted by IT to schedule delivery. If a device is being used during the period requested, you may request another two-week period of time.​

if you are interested but not teaching in Burnell Hall or the first floor of Hart Hall, please request a classroom in these locations from the Registrar's Office.
