Digital Touch Systems] (DTS) announces a new partnership that brings touch screen technology to FMC Technologies Learning Center Houston. With the installation of six 60 inch touch screen work centers stationed outside classrooms, FMC Technologies hopes to incorporate interactive team building into the learning experience. Business Review commends DTS and FMC Technologies for their combined efforts to bring state of the art technology into on the job training to achieve a more engaging and effective way of promoting participant learning and group collaborations.

DTS built a custom hardware solution that allows for students or professors to easily move the screens from a wall mounted look to an interactive table, this actuating feature is controlled by a remote. “These units are unlike anything seen in a learning space before,” says Bryan McCarley, CEO of DTS. “They allow participants to incorporate a simulative learning experience into their group work so they can learn how to work together by emerging themselves into the project. Once the groups finish their projects, they can easily shoot them over the network back into the classroom to be analyzed and discussed by the instructor.”

One of the units has Snowflake software and a gaming suite to incorporate entertainment with quality education allowing instructors to engage students with fun activities while still learning. “These touch screens allow learning to come to life and be dynamic, not just static,” says John Potterton, FMC Technologies University Operations Manager. “The intention is to utilize the touch screens for hands on interactive learning tools for participants attending our core courses, giving them the opportunity to perhaps look at some simulations connected to what they’re learning.”

These screens will allow instructors to get creative with their teachings, which will help engage participants in learning about FMC Technologies during their training. For more information on FMC Technologies Learning Center Houston, contact John Potterton at john.potterton(at)fmcti(dot)com
