Having everything in one place to present and interact with, it’s just amazing, it really engages the students Trish PapettasCatering to this generation’s visual learning needs is an essential part of being able to show content on an interactive screen. Visual learners are good at memorising things by seeing them. They notice details and remember images better than learning with audio. This is how the use of a HDi interactive screen can be a huge advantage in the classroom. Many applications, such as those featured in the Microsoft suite, are now supported by gesture controls and inbuilt inking tools, so teachers can use their HDi screens just like they would with their smartphones or tablets.
Last term, whilst studying text from our selected book, we scanned it and put it on the interactive screen to have the students able to read it all together; reading the words, maps and the images…. the level of comprehension was amazing! Trish PapettasInterestingly, the HDi multi touch screen has also been used to help with punctuality in the classroom. Regular attendance is highly important; working together on this is the key to success and using the right tools makes a big difference to the class dynamic.
I use the screen first thing in the morning when students arrive to mark attendance, they see and select their faces on the screen and everything is interactive as they mark themselves in. Furthermore, being able to have students present and interact with their own work in front of their peers on the screen makes a huge difference in improving their engagement levels in class. Scott GardnerTeachers have also been using interactive games on the screen to further engage students in subject areas such as Mathematics. We thank Kingsley Park Primary School for allowing us to understand some of the more powerful ways they have adopted their HDi multi touch screens. It was great to see the students and teachers alike approaching the technology so seamlessly across their day of learning.
