There’s no one-size-fits-all answer for ideal classroom display solutions. Fortunately, classrooms have options. Most classrooms benefit (hugely) from at least one interactive touchscreen display. Many find that more than one display is ideal for flexible classrooms that maximize active learning.
Interactive touchscreen displays – what some call smart flat-screen TVs – deliver loads of benefits. Here are ten of the top advantages of using an interactive touchscreen display in your classrooms.
1. Support active learning
Interactive touchscreen displays have an inherent ability to bolster active learning. (Provided teachers use them for more than showing videos and slides). It’s one of the greatest advantages these dynamic devices bring to the classroom.
Interactive touchscreen displays are masterful at enabling collaboration. Multitouch capabilities let several students manipulate onscreen content as a team. It’s an ideal way to brainstorm. Present. Analyze text or images. Work through an experiment. Or engage with a learning game.
2. Developing Critical Readiness Skills
Interactive touchscreen displays help students of all ages develop critical life skills. To stay afloat in a competitive world, students need to be able to think critically. They must be able to observe and analyze. To suss out smart solutions to complex dilemmas. They need to be able to answer higher-level questions that require thought and exploration. They need to learn to ask why, what if, and how to think through all sides of an issue.
Using touch screen displays with classmates helps students develop social-emotional learning (SEL) competencies. Skills like self-awareness and self-management. Social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making.
3. Boosting Enthusiasm and Engagement
Students in classes that leverage an interactive touchscreen display are more engaged. They pay more attention. They’re more positive about learning. Teachers often report that increased attentiveness and engagement are the top benefits of teaching with interactive display technology.
4. Enhance classroom management
Interactive touchscreen displays can be a boon to keeping classes running smoothly. For one thing, the more engaged students are, the less likely they are to be disruptive. By making lessons more dynamic, students are inherently more captivated by the content. For another, interactive displays enable the use of can’t-be-missed visual aids.
5. Easy to Implement
Compared to traditional interactive whiteboards and projector-based technology, they offer big benefits. Because they’re all-in-one solutions, they’re faster to deploy. They require virtually no maintenance. Plus, teachers get up and running with their dynamic displays with minimal training.
