Lynbrook, NY - ACE Communications has teamed with the International Communications Industries Association (ICIA) to offer a tour for architects of the Georgetown University Law Center. More than two dozen architects were in attendance on February 7 in Washington, DC, to learn about the application of AV technology in a new moot courtroom, classrooms and fitness center. The night was a collaboration of all the key parties involved in the installation process including Wallace Mlyniec (associate dean, Georgetown University Law Center), Pablo Molina (CIO, Georgetown University Law Center), David Goldenberg (vice president, ACE Communications) and Buddy Mear (principal, Shepley, Bulfinch, Richardson and Abbott).

"This tour gave local architects an opportunity to witness the symbiosis between technology and architecture," said ACE's Goldenberg. "This installation projects the future of all law schools and educational facilities in its seamless integration of technology in a learning environment."

Georgetown's Mlyniec cited the challenges of maximizing technologies in the classroom that are led by 20th century professors instructing 21st century students. He said the technology has to be easy to use to take full advantage of AV equipment such as smartboards, control systems and multimedia formats.

Shepley's Mear discussed the changes in the classroom that impact learning today. He said that the collaborative nature of learning, working in groups, necessitates bigger spaces for technology and students, whether in classrooms, libraries or meeting spaces.

"Tours of unique AV projects such as the Georgetown Law Center are very effective in raising awareness for the role of AV professionals," said Duffy Wilbert, who oversees ICIA's foundation. "We look for these kinds of opportunities to educate end users about the many ways that AV is used to enhance communications."

In the May issue of SCN focusing on education, a Systems Snapshot will take a look at the Georgetown University Law Center from an integrator's point of view.
