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 inquiries via screencasting to spark group discussion.
Develop critical preparation skills, interactive flat panel displays help students of all ages develop critical life skills. Today’s and tomorrow’s jobs require greater resilience, problem-solving and critical thinking - to survive in a competitive world, students need to be able to: Think critically, observe and analyze, come up with smart solutions for complex dilemmas, answer higher-level questions that require thinking and exploration, and learn to ask why and how to think about all sides of a problem. To prepare students for careers and college, they need to use classroom technology tools in ways that develop these critical skills and interactive flat-panel displays give students the opportunity to do so.
Collaboration skills are also important. Effective collaboration is an expectation of teamwork. While traditional one-to-many lecture formats cannot develop these skills, interactive presentations enable constructivist learning, 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.
