As technology continues to shape the world, it is no surprise that many educational establishments are investing in interactive displays (or interactive whiteboards as they are commonly known) to further engage and educate students. By using technology within the classroom, children are often able to get involved more in their lessons, as they can collaborate both with teachers and classmates. With that being said, here are a few reasons we think teachers should be using interactive technology as a way of engaging their students: 

  1. More collaboration and engagement 

As previously mentioned, by using interactive technology within the classroom, both students and teachers can collaborate with each other with ease, creating an exciting and enriching learning environment. Rather than relying on pen and paper, technology allows everyone to be involved, thanks to the interactive software that comes along with the display. Annotate, write notes, watch videos or play educational games to engage students and enable them to work together. Students are encouraged to learn how to use technology; a skill that will help them going into the workplace.  

  1. Multisensory Learning 

Instead of relying on notebooks and worksheets, interactive displays enable different varieties of teaching using videos, pictures and audio. By providing different ways to learn within the classroom, students are able to comprehend topics and lessons easily, particularly those who may struggle to learn with traditional teaching and learning methods. The ability to use different colours and layouts on an ever-expanding infinity canvas, which never runs out of space, allows for a more exciting experience that will capture the interests of students as opposed to pen and paper.  

  1. Customisation and Adaptability 

Interactive displays allow teachers to easily create their own lesson plans or use premade ones, that are interesting and accessible. It is easy to change and customise content, making the planning process more efficient, whilst also providing a fun and captivating experience for students. Customisation allows teachers to tailor content to suit the needs of their students, eliminating the need for them to reprint or redo teaching resources. By taking the inconvenience out of creating new learning materials, teachers are able to focus more on the needs of their students. 

  1. Real-Time Feedback 

Teachers can see how well their lessons are being perceived by students through real-time feedback that can be accessed via online quizzes, polls and assessments. By using these, teachers are able to adapt and change their lessons efficiently to create the best possible learning environment for their students. 

To summarise, interactive displays provide endless ways to create enriching learning experiences without the hassle, that will ensure students leave their lessons feeling engaged. By using interactive displays in the classroom, students are encouraged to interact and collaborate, both individually and as a group, using the different tools available, including videos, pictures and quizzes.
