Interactive Displays for Education

What are interactive classroom displays?

Interactive classroom displays are often referred to as front-of-class technology. This next generation technology for the classroom is a large screen ‘display’ connected, often wirelessly, to a teacher’s computer to deliver lesson content. They are the evolution of interactive technology for schools that started with traditional interactive whiteboards, which later moved to interactive classroom displays. They are used for collaboration, lesson delivery, general teaching, and to promote interactivity. Many interactive classroom displays also include a separate hard drive, such as a Chromebox device, to make updates easier. Examples of interactive classroom displays include Promethean’s ActivPanel Titanium and ActivPanel Nickel interactive display.
