What is a TEC?

Technology Enhanced Classrooms are spaces with built-in computing and multimedia equipment to aid in the teaching, collaboration, and presentation of material with students. TEC's are a result of a partnership between the Office of the Provost and Information Technology with support from Academic Computing.


TEC FULL includes an instructor podium or desk with fully integrated computing and multimedia equipment:

  • A/V Touch Panel Controller
  • Full HD Projector or Display
  • Sound System
  • Mac Computer
  • Laptop Input (HDMI)
  • Laptop Power Supply
  • Blu-Ray Disc Player
  • Document Camera


TEC LITE is a more minimally designed classroom with the same high-quality A/V presentation ideal for flexible spaces such as pin-ups and critiques:

  • Simple & Intuitive Button Controller
  • Full HD Projector or Display
  • Built-In Speakers
  • Laptop Input (HDMI)
  • Wireless Device Mirroring (Select Spaces)

Room Access

TEC Rooms are available to all instructors assigned to teach in them and are accessible via door swipe-locks that respond to your PrattCard. Users are assigned access by their individual departments at the beginning of each semester. If you have problems accessing a room, please contact your department liaison or the PrattCard Office.


Every TEC comes with full Service Desk support weekdays from 8AM–8PM. If you encounter problems with the technology in your room, please call 718.636.3765 or email services@pratt.edu.
