Active learning is paramount to maximizing STEM learning. Interactive flat panel displays bring STEM subjects to life: students can conduct labs and experiments at the display, work out equations as a team, and share their inquiry via screencasting to spark group discussion.
Developing Critical Readiness Skills, interactive flat panel displays help students of all ages develop critical life skills. The jobs of today and tomorrow require greater adaptability, problem-solving and critical thinking–to stay afloat in a competitive world, students need to be able to: Think critically，Observe and analyze，Come up with smart solutions to complex dilemmas，Answer higher-level questions that require thought and exploration，Learn to ask why, what if, and how to think through all sides of an issue.To prepare students for career and college readiness they need to be using classroom tech tools in ways that develop these critical skills, and interactive flat panel displays allow student the opportunities to do so.
Collaboration skills are also critical. Collaborating effectively is expecting in teamwork. While the traditional one-to-many lecture format fails to foster these skills, interactive displays enable constructivist learning, thus allowing students to work together to make connections and develop knowledge.
By 2030, 30% to 40% of jobs will require strong social and emotional skills. Automation is replacing jobs that require repetitive tasks, but today’s students will be engaged in tasks that machines cannot do, such as communication, management, and application expertise. Using interactive displays with classmates can help students develop socio-emotional learning (SEL) skills—such as self-awareness and self-management, social awareness, interpersonal skills, and responsible decision-making.
