The School News Network identified engagement as the most important measure of student success. Students who are engaged stay motivated. Kids that get involved see results and drive performance achievement for their schools. And increased engagement is just one of the many benefits of interactive whiteboards.
Being proactive with engagement technologies is a core aspect of the modern classroom. Hybrid classrooms are gaining some traction in education, resulting in a mix of students who are present in the physical classroom and some joining the class virtually.
Teachers are always looking for new ways to engage students. The following tips reveal how digital technologies provide the means for achieving success regardless of institutional size or delivery method.
Students depend on technology to help them keep pace and excel. Collaboration and communication offerings can help give students—as well as administrators, teachers, and other educators— the digital tools needed to engage, connect, learn, and succeed virtually anywhere. Interactive whiteboards (IWB) allow students at home to take part in group activities and continue to build bonds with their classmates.
Go Beyond the Lecture
Engage Students. Go from teaching science through lectures, slides, and drills alone to inviting students to actively participate in the process of learning.
For teachers, nothing is more draining than unengaged students. Interactive displays allow students to explore subjects from a variety of perspectives. With an IWB, a teacher can display images or videos and write notes on the screen and students can interact with the part they like best.
Learning Games For Classroom Touchscreens And Interactive Displays
Classroom competitions are a strong motivator. The touchscreen puts a new high-tech spin on what is possible. Students in the classroom can write their answers while remote students can compete at home. With access to learning apps like the ones found in the Google Play store, there is always a new way to make education fun.
How Technology Can Help Shy And Introverted Students
Interactive whiteboards can improve education for the more reticent students. The ability to interact with the IWB remotely, from their desk or from home, empowers introverted students to participate.
Educators can now use technology to help all students, no matter their learning styles or needs. Touchscreens offer a host of ways that students can answer questions in a way that is more comfortable for them, so teachers know that their words are really getting through. Remote touchscreen technology gives students an opportunity to reply without being judged or questioned.
The New Classroom Staple
Whiteboards and projectors had their time, but now students need more sophisticated tools to succeed in the world beyond the classroom. The touchscreen captivates students and helps them engage, even from remote locations. It makes learning fun, competitive, imaginative, and rewarding.
