Touchscreens are the next generation of front of class interactive displays – like having a huge familiar 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.
In addition gone is the shadowing associated with interactive whiteboards and projectors and the constant need to recalibrate the board aswell as the lack of orientation where the writer and the actual writing are in completely different places.
The touchscreen creates a smooth and seamless touch experience by way of its glass surface with a superfast response time, 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. Powered by android, 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.
