Touchscreens are the next generation of front of class interactive displays – It’s like having a huge tablet on the wall. Extreme durability is the name of the game aswell as negating the need to replace projector bulbs or even the projector itself.
Most importantly the touchscreen will also contribute to the schools ‘green’ credentials as it cuts power consumption compared to the traditional projector system by 65%. In fact, as an example, the Cost of Ownership over four years of the projector system (projector, interactive whiteboard and PC) compared to the Clevertouch Plus 55” is approximately £1,600 compared to around £270 (figures are based around the cost of power consumption, cost of service calls, new bulbs and general maintenance over four years).
In addition gone is the need to constantly recalibrate the screen, gone is the shadowing associated with interactive whiteboards and projectors and gone is the lack of orientation forcing the writer and the actual writing be in completely different places.
The touchscreen anti-glare glass surface creates a smooth and seamless touch experience with a superfast response time to ensure the technology keeps up with your students whilst built in speakers provide deep, crystal-clear sound throughout the classroom.
Each screen comes with built in software which enables teachers to wirelessly share their lessons, easily access content and download and share their favourite apps. Teachers and students alike can use the tablet-like functionality to interact with content, simultaneously write and draw and connect mobile devices to mirror content and deliver and share content anywhere in the classroom.
