We all know the traditional class model: the teacher stands in front of the class and students listen and take notes.
This was working perfectly until new generations changed the way they acquire knowledge and communicate with the world. Teachers are adapting to these new times and one of the most effective change being made is the addition of interactive contents.
An interactive screen is a great tool for engaging classes as teachers can use it to promote an active participation of students in the class and add more audiovisual contents.
As teamwork and communication are trending skills to be developed throughout the school years, an interactive device that can share the students’ screens, connect to the internet, and display information of several platforms will make classes fun and interesting.
Before choosing interactive classes make sure you check all your options and have all the requirements to make the shift to new contents and ways to teach.
3 Things to consider before choosing interactive classes:
1. Financial resources
Check the initial price for the product, warranty and maintenance required. The software and connectivity is also points to check as many suppliers have packs where some details are included and others have to be purchased separately.
2. Trained teachers
Usually, the generation gap wins the battle in interactive classes and teachers don’t feel as comfortable as theirs students to work with interactive displays and make the best use of learning apps and interactive contents. Usually, classes need to be adapted to interactive contents and teachers need training.
Make sure the classroom fits the interactive device. Screens are easy to wall mount (similar to regular TVs), but they require a central space in the wall. In cases where the space is a problem, we recommend to add mobile support that will be precious to store and protect the device and well as to better adapt the space to the class activities.
