Make learning fun
Combining interactive whiteboards (IWB) with a projector is an affordable way to create a large format image that enables students to participate and transforms the classroom into an interactive learning environment.
A visualiser is another form of projection. It’s not simply a fancy overhead projector but more like a camera that can pick up live images, whatever form they take, and allows students to view them on a large scale. These images could take the form of a sheet of paper, a transparency, a 3D object, a 35mm slide, an e-ray or even a large item in the room. The visualiser enables educators to point, annotate, zoom in and out and see different views and angles by turning an object. As an exciting visual technology it helps people absorb and retain information.
Just as the interactive white board replaced traditional blackboards and chalk, the interactive flat panel (IFP) will transform primary and secondary school teaching in the decade to come. Once the go-to interactive education technology, many schools are now faced with the need to replace IWBs that are nearing the end of their lifecycle and becoming a costly burden. So what’s next?
IFPs look set to be the next-generation interactive learning tool, helping teachers make lessons fun and engaging.
