Interactive Boards are no longer a luxury but a necessity in every classroom. With educational institutes moving a step forward towards smarter means of education, it has become increasingly important to innovate in terms of pedagogical methods. The traditional classroom setup involved blackboard teaching which may not be able to meet the learning requirements of students and fail to engage them in an effective manner.
Therefore, investing in a good quality Interactive Board is no longer a luxury but a necessity now.
Advantages of Interactive Board over Regular Blackboard
More Visualization for Teachers and Students
With the help of Interactive Board, teachers can use high definition images, videos and multimedia files to support the teaching. It makes difficult concepts easier to understand for students. Visualization of concepts also keeps students more engaged in the classroom as compared the blackboard and chalk method. Humans are visual beings. 75% of our brain is accustomed to processing visual information.
With the help of Interactive Boards, students work and projects can be displayed on the screen in front of the entire class. This creates more room for a collaborative environment in a classroom, instilling a sense of competition and engagement. In case of blackboards, a separate setup is required with projector and screen to achieve the same purpose. Also, Interactive Boards can be connected to other devices like PC, Smartphone and Laptops.
