How to choose the right interactive display device for your classroom

2018-03-23

Today, many students have become accustomed to using high-definition display devices in their daily lives – for them, it has become the expected standard. As educators and schools work hard to find ways to better engage students and motivate learning, they realize that using interactive display technology in the classroom is the key. We have listed the following five things we think you need to consider when purchasing.

  1. How many contact points do you need?

If the interactive flat panel has six touch points, up to six students can operate simultaneously on the display, and each student uses one touch (single finger or stylus). Or, 3 students can use 2 fingers to operate and move objects on the screen. To find out how many touch points you need, ask yourself these two questions: How many students do I usually ask to work on the monitor? How many students can work comfortably on the display at the same time?

  1. Is the size important?

Students should be able to easily read 20-point texts from the furthest point of display away in the classroom. To make a decision, use the following simple formula: 3 times the size of the diagonal screen = Students can easily read the furthest distance on the display screen. Thus, a 70-inch display can serve students as far as 17.5 feet (5.3 meters), and an 84-inch display can provide students with distances up to 21 feet (6.5 meters).

  1. The essential HDMI, VGA interface

In many cases, you must connect some other devices, such as your computer, microphone, etc. Therefore, you need to understand whether the interactive screen monitor has enough interfaces to meet your needs. If you use a VGA stereo connection, you may need 2 HDMI, 1 VGA. If you are using a microphone, you also need the microphone port.

  1. To choose LED or LCD?

All monitors are LCDs; they are backlit by LEDs or CCFLs. The LED backlight provides a brighter picture and is more energy efficient. It is therefore unwise to hesitate in LED and LCD. You need to spend more time on other aspects.

5 not only look at the hardware but also the supporting software

In class, you are actually using software to teach. This is why you want to make sure that the software that comes with the IFP you purchased doesn’t just provide drivers and slideshows. You should choose software that can really enable and attract learning – provide collaboration opportunities, provide software that evaluates and integrates with mobile learning, just like the IQClass software.

Why interactive display is so important and how to choose it

2018-03-02

The use of interactive and collaborative technologies in the classroom has become the most basic requirement for educating students to participate and succeed in the 21st century. Interactive displays represent a shift in the way students and teachers interact with information and interact with each other. Today, Interactive display technologies help teachers attract students’ attention and promote collaboration.

Why interactivity is so important??

Project-based teaching, collaboration and interactive technologies all contribute to practice and hands-on learning. The education community is rapidly adopting a constructivist approach to working with students to build connections and develop knowledge.

Teachers and managers are working hard to apply this knowledge to new classroom design practices, using flexible collaboration techniques to create spaces for active participation and meaningful learning. In these technologies, the front-end display plays a key role. More than just the high-tech counterparts of whiteboards, interactive displays bring many advanced advantages. Teachers say that increasing student attention and participation is the number one benefit of using interactive in-house technology to teach, and many educators believe that interactive displays in the classroom are very important or absolutely necessary.

What can interactive display do?

The interactive display is ideal for any type of classroom, lecture hall or distance learning environment, and its possible uses are almost endless.

  • Teacher guides to view websites, applications or videos
  • Screen highlighting and annotation
  • Save and Print Features
  • Promote team projects and personal demos
  • Collaborative environment
  • Video conference connection
  • Enter text/data via the floating screen keyboard
  • Screen editing and recording
  • Support effective special needs education and classroom differentiation
  • Use optional audience response accessories for student feedback and assessment

 

Types of interactive displays

Interactive whiteboards (IWB)has become the classroom standard. Today, large-format interactive flat panel (IFP) and interactive projection (IPJ) technologies provide another way to bring interactive displays to classrooms. Each method provides interactive functionality through different methods

Projector based IWB

The widely used interactive whiteboard system consists of a large display panel connected to a computer and a projector. The desktop of the computer is transmitted to the surface of the circuit board through the projector, and the user can control the computer with a pen, a finger or other devices. In this system, the interactive function is embedded in the display panel itself, but the content must be transmitted to the circuit board through the projector.

 

Interactive flat panel display

The large-size touch screen LED display provides a new alternative, expanding its advantages, reducing maintenance requirements and overall cost of ownership. With this option, the only component needed for full functionality is the LED display itself.

 

Interactive projector

Interactive technology embeds interactive technology that was previously only found in IWB. The interactive projector can convert almost any plane into a collaborative canvas. Users can write, draw and annotate directly on the projected image. This interactive display method requires only a projector, no special writing tools, and can use any available dry erase board, drop-down screen, blank wall, or other flat display surfaces.
