What are the benefits of using educational software in school?


 There are lots of great reasons why you should consider using educational software in your classroom. For instance, the educational software will enable your students to become more effective independent learners. Even severely disabled students can succeed herein because this software places everyone on the same level.

The educational software can also enable students to gather information that otherwise would have been impossible, time-consuming or costly. For instance, data from outer space can now be utilized. Students can also experiment with the changing aspects of a model like increasing or lowering interest rates in order to see how this affects the economy. All of this can be very motivational for students and these are just some of the numerous advantages of educational software.

Here are a few ways educational software can benefit your children.

Improve Phonic Awareness - Phonemic awareness is the ability to notice, think about, and work with the individual sounds in words. A student's skill in phonemic awareness is a good predictor of later reading success or difficulty. Educational software has been helping kindergarten age children improve their print concepts and listening comprehension skills.

Gain Higher Achievement - Studies have shown that math scores have increased in children that have used computers and screen time to match the student's interests. My son uses different online math software to help reinforce the math concepts he is learning in class. I love watching him have fun while he is learning. We have seen an increase on his math scores since he has been doing this.

Learn About Cause and Effect - Because educational games are built on solving problems or reaching new levels, it is a powerful tool for helping children solve problems on their own. They typically don't get this in book learning. Self confidence increases when  child is able to figure things out on their own. They also see that with perseverance, they can do anything.

Control the Experience - One of the best parts of using educational software, is it gives each student the option to control the experience. None of my kids are alike. They each have different interests and learning styles. When they use educational software, they can control the pace at which they learn. If they want to push themselves, they can do it a safe, fun way. If they need extra help, they can review concepts time after time without feeling badly about themselves.


Students are inevitably going to speed time on the internet and their devices. Use online educational software to enhance their learning and comprehension.

Touch Screen Board Classroom Price


An interactive touch screen board is a computer driven device, allowing users to access and manipulate electronic files by means of a LCD display. The interactive LCD will be connected to a computer with USB, and the computer then connected back to the LCD with a video cable. These screens serve a variety of functions, and is capable of many different things. First and foremost, would be the creation of interactivity with your computer files.

An interactive LCD/LED touch screen offers users the ability to customize a system to fit exactly what they need. We have a variety of displays including bare bone touch screen displays all the way up to All-in-one Video Conferencing Interactive Systems. 

Think of the way you would write on a traditional chalkboard. As the piece of chalk makes contact with the board, it forms letters and numbers. With an interactive touch screen board, it does the same exact thing – it just does it electronically.

Think of it as digital ink. You are still “writing on the board”, just in a different way. You can have the board as a blank white surface, and fill it up with notes, just like a chalkboard. Or, you can display a file and annotate over it. An example of annotation would be bringing up a map.

 You could write over top of the map in a variety of different colors. Then, when you are done, you can save the marked up file as an image. At that point, it is an electronic file that can be emailed, printed, saved for a later date – whatever you wanted to do. 

The price of touch screen board in classroom is various between different brands. The major brands include IQBoard, InFocus Mondopad & Jtouch, SMART, SHARP, Promethean, Newline and more. 


Although the touch screen board price is higher than whiteboard price in classroom, the interactive LED displays offer obvious advantages over traditional whiteboard:

1) You no longer have to purchase expensive projector lamps and experience unexpected burn outs.

2) Shadowing on a projected image is eliminated.

3) Projector light shinning in users eyes, eliminated.

4) Maintenance to change filters on a projector, eliminated.

5) Much cleaner and crisp image than a projector is capable of producing.

6) Display will not be washed out by sun or ambient light.

7) Less wiring than a traditional interactive system.

8) Many units are available with an optional built in PC. This makes a true "All in One" system.

9) More durable surface than traditional whiteboards.


So, it is worth investing interactive touch screen displays for classroom use.

IQBoard IQTouch Series is no longer the only well known name in the Interactive Whiteboard market, but if you're dead set on purchasing an IQBoard you've probably noticed it is a huge pain to find the prices. 

Why is it such a pain to find prices? IQBoard sellers want to offer a wide range of accredited technical services, training, and more. They want to sell you on a package/service, not just a product.

Interactive Whiteboard Prices and Beginner's Guide to Buy


It's important your interactive whiteboard helps students achieve learning goals by promoting critical thinking and keeping students engaged in lessons. Here are some features that will be helpful to know when purchasing an interactive whiteboard not only considering about the prices also other features to think about before buying.

What exactly is an interactive whiteboard ? It’s interesting that quite a lot of people don’t know the answer to this question. Many people think that the projector itself is the Interactive Whiteboard.  The projector is a machine in its own right and its job is to display whatever is on the computer screen on to the whiteboard. Most of the time, the interactivity is built into the whiteboard itself.  For example, IQBoard infrared interactive whiteboard has black and white lamp to send and receive infrared signal to produce interactivity. Some boards have other ways of putting interactivity into the board itself.

To add to the mix, you’ve got the interactivity built inside the projector.  This is becoming very popular now. A full Interactive Whiteboard system has one of these above – and then you need a computer of some sort.  The computer will generally have the software that lets you connect to the board. The projector links the computer to the IWB, displaying whatever is on the computer’s screen. Every Interactive Whiteboard system has these three components and it’s the interactive bit that adds the layer of complexity.

There are different types of IWBs, over 20 different types of Interactive Whiteboards being sold in this country and all of them have been sold successfully all over the world. Pen-based, infrared boards are usually the cheapest boards on the market. Pen-based, electro-magnetic boards are also usually more expensive than the boards just said.  Touch-based, mesh board are also reasonably priced. This type of board allows the user to interact with their finger as well as a pen. Some of them allow you to use dry wipe markers on them too. Touch based infrared board have all the features of the above type board but just use a different technology. These boards are usually cheap and are increasingly becoming very popular.

There are many reasons why people choose one of the above options.  While I prefer types 3 and 4. For me, when buying a board I not only need to be able to interact with my board with a “magic” pen, I also want to be able to use my finger.  I also want to be able to write on my board with dry wipe markers.  I cannot understand why anyone would not want these facilities.  However, more than half the boards on the market do not allow the user to do this.  When you buy your board, think about this.

I hope this article has helped unravel some of the mystery around the types of boards out there.   However, whatever board you choose, make sure you take your time.  Try not to listen to salespeak.  Try not to get drawn into buying the same board as the school down the road.  Try not to simply buy the first one you’ve heard of. Ask the sales-people questions.  Ask them about after sales care, ask them about guarantees, ask them about training, then listen carefully to their answers.  Once you’ve had a good look around ,weigh up your options.  What is important to you?
