The Advantages of Using Interactive Displays for Your Educational Needs

Sep 24, 2014 by

Computer technology is rapidly making its way into classrooms all over the world, with more and more teachers and students using tablets and smartphones to quickly access information online and store notes and other materials. Another great piece of technology that many classrooms and lecture halls are using today is interactive displays that allow students to use touch-screens and other such features during their learning. Consider some advantages to this type of technology for your classroom, lecture hall, conference room and other areas of learning.

1. Students feel more involved in learning

When a student or anyone attending a lecture is bored it’s easy to tune out what an instructor is saying, but when a student becomes involved in their learning they are more eager to learn and will typically retain the information more readily. Interactive LED displays allow students to become completely absorbed in a lesson or lecture; they are offered hands-on learning that helps them to more easily remember what they’ve learned.

For younger children especially, this type of interaction can make quite a difference in how they respond to schooling overall. Interactive displays can also help to break up long lectures and seminars that would otherwise become boring if they only included a monologue from a speaker.

2. LED displays are easier to see

For those giving seminars and lectures, one common concern is if everyone in the audience can see an overhead projector or slide. With LED displays on large screens, everyone in the room is sure to see the display and will understand what is being taught.

Full-colour displays, like from Vista Visuals Australia Pty Ltd, are also more visible than whiteboards or chalkboards and they can be seen even in the largest of auditoriums. For those who give many lectures or for conferences, this can solve the constant problem of always asking if everyone in the room can see the board or slide.

3. LED displays can be connected to the internet and other computers

Finding information and reference materials quickly can be a challenge in a classroom, but when LED displays are connected to the internet and other computers, a lecturer or teacher can find and display unlimited amounts of data. This also allows lecturers to easily jump between different programs so that they can show a PowerPoint presentation that is then interrupted by an Excel spreadsheet, then a page online, and so forth. Rather than constantly flipping between slides or overhead sheets, a teacher or lecturer can simply access their own computer or tablet and connect this to the LED display for a faster and easier way to teach.
