Create dynamic lessons with team collaboration
On the days that teachers reserve for breaking students up into workgroups, multiple IWBs — also known as interactive flat panel displays (IFPDs) — can significantly enhance collaboration. To save money, rather than buying multiple boards for each classroom, you can have teachers get on rotating schedules to share IFPDs regularly and take advantage of these highly-collaborative opportunities.
Group workshops can be very effective when students who are reviewing a peer's work are connected to the IFPD — allowing them to offer constructive criticism by annotating documents displayed on the board from their one-to-one computing devices. Every student connected to the display can also interact with the board by:
- Making notes
- Highlighting key points
- Uploading videos
- Sharing documents
To add another level of interactivity to group discussions, teachers can control the displays with tablets or smart devices, allowing them to walk around the room and interact with students while maintaining control of the displays. Plus, during classroom presentations — delivered in groups or by individual students — IFPDs with Windows® 10 controllers support preferred apps like Microsoft® Office 365®, and enable presenters to work with documents they’ve already created.
