Smart boards in classroom

Interactive smart boards have certainly revolutionised the way children learn, and teachers teach. An amalgam of a computer, a projector, and a whiteboard provides teachers with more options than ever before. Smart ways of education transform education in more than one way for the better. Unlike the old scratchy chalkboards or stained and messy whiteboards, the smart boards in classroom enable a teacher to display relevant information in a clear and vibrant format and colours, giving students a break from monotonous learning.  

Smart board encourages students to embrace technology in their learning. With the aid of a smart board in classroom, school owners can expand the scope of learning for students. 

As schools worldwide are closed, techniques to make learning relevant and effective must be adopted. Using interactive smart boards in classroom allows teachers to make the lesson fun, increasing their interest and ensuring excellent results. Today, when parents are looking for technology-equipped schools for uninterrupted and quality learning for their children, installing smart boards will be a great decision.

United Nations urges, “We need to prepare students for jobs that haven’t been created yet and to become entrepreneurs. What we need to learn, how we learn, and the role of the teacher are all changing.”

To achieve this in its entirety, a significant shift from traditional ways is required. 

Can smart boards bring the change needed in the sector? 

Interactive smart boards in the classroom allow schools to provide an enriched learning experience by projecting visual elements. Learners can observe the projection screen and understand what is being taught in the class. Technology and innovations outweigh the demerits of traditional classroom settings by providing quality learning to students at home. 

Schools that deploy smart boards in classroom get better results due to better engagement factor. 

Let’s look at the top 5 benefits of installing a smart board in the classroom:
  • Interactive learning

Perhaps one of the most significant advantages of smart boards in classroom is their ability to be interactive. Students learn better and faster when they are fully engaged. The use of visuals, presentations etc., expedite learning. 

  • Low maintenance

School owners, by installing interactive boards can make smart learning in class possible. These boards just serve the purpose without being high maintenance. You don’t need to make frequent changes or work on their maintenance. 

  • Environment friendly

Smart Boards are environmentally friendly as they eliminate the need for paper. Hence, there will be no need to photocopy and print a class set of papers.

  • Integrates technology

One of the several benefits of smart boards is their ability to integrate technology. Educators can connect their computers, video cameras, digital cameras, microscopes etc. that helps them in teaching. Students can learn better with technology.

  • High success rates

Using technology in the classroom can help enhance test scores, allow smart learning in class, enhances literacy, boosts attentiveness, and increases comprehension. 

A big leap from blackboard to smartboard 

Education has made a quantum leap forward with tech-aided teaching and learning solutions. Classroom settings in the schools and teaching techniques today are very different from what they used to be years ago. The rote learning system is now being transformed with cutting-edge teaching and learning methods driven by smart and innovative technologies. 

Today, both students and educators have access to smart mobile devices and distance e-learning and assessment solutions at their disposal. The schools equipped with smart boards, projectors and personalised learning and assessment modules, etc., are achieving better results. Smartboards help institutions promote different learning environments like flipped and virtual classrooms and experiential and collaborative learning.
