“Touchscreens empower visual and hands-on learners…”
Everyday educators are competing for student’s attention due to constant stimulation from devices such as smart phones and tablets. Instead of competing, why not embrace? Many educators have already taken this approach and shifted towards collaborative lessons that encourage active participation and student collaboration.
Touchscreens facilitate this, allowing interactive presentations, annotation over digital content and access to educational apps. Due to everyday exposure to HD TV, gaming consoles and smart devices, students have become accustom to bright, crisp images.
Anything inferior, lacks impact. This impact cannot be achieved through the dim lamp of a projector, regardless of the quality of content. Touchscreens that feature anti-glare glass and HD or FHD (4K) resolution combat the affect an unclear image could have your lessons. The best part, it doesn’t matter how bright your classroom is or where the student is seated, the viewing angle on LED touchscreens with these features, is second to none.
As individuals, we learn differently. Each classroom contains students with varied learning abilities. Touchscreens empower visual and hands-on learners.
Today’s Information Society demands students learn skills that will aid them for careers of the future. By incorporating collaborative lessons through touchscreens we’re equipping students with skills that will benefit them later in life.
Not only are touchscreens an engaging teaching tool, they allow for flexible learning spaces. Touchscreens are platform independent, meaning they support multiple operating systems (Windows, Mac, Linux & Chrome). This is an excellent feature due to the prevalence of BYOD (bring your own device) programs and diverse ICT needs amongst schools. Additionally, as computers become end of life, you can easily upgrade without losing the functionality of your touchscreen.
