Visual Displays For Classrooms | Enhancing Class Engagement

Digital activities are becoming increasingly popular in classrooms across the UK. More and more teaching institutions are beginning to adopt these practices. There has been a significant improvement in the connectivity of devices. As a result, it is even easier to use technology. In this article, we will talk about how you can get the most out of technology in the classroom, using a flexible visual display solution.

Studies show that using technology in the classroom improves student’s retention of information, engagement in activities and recall skills. There are many ways to engage with students using technology, however the easiest method is through large format displays.

Classroom Digital Displays

NEC claim that – “Group working in the classroom encourages student participation and engagement in the learning process, whilst enhancing enjoyment and achievement”

Teachers can increase student’s interaction during lessons by using multi-pen interactive whiteboards and touchscreens. Additionally, they can use BYOD (bring your own device) enabled displays. This allows anyone in the classroom to connect to them.

One drawback is that these displays need mounting. Space is a premium in most classrooms, and this can often lead to a rethink of the entire room’s layout. This can be pricey if additional infrastructure is required. In addition to this, permanently mounting a large screen is not practical in a flexible learning environment. Our solution was to design flexible visual display stands that makes the large screens mobile.

There are many aspects to consider when choosing our flexible visual display solutions. Such as, what size screen will you be using? Are you using additional equipment to drive the screen such as a PC or wireless receiver? Is the screen going to be used in a single space? Or is it going to be moved around between rooms? These questions will help us deliver the best solution for your requirements.

So, what are the benefits of using these solutions?

You can create a world of opportunities for positive engagement with our display solutions. You can achieve this by utilising the ability to manoeuvre your displays into the best positions for your students. Move the screen close to those currently participating in the class’s activity. Have them connect to the screen and display their work. Bring up resources to talk about with specific groups. Furthermore, you could deploy multiple screens so that each group has their own display. The possibilities go on and on. Using technology and engaging in such activities improves students’ confidence to pick up and use technology. This is a key transferable skill for the workplace.

We can help to make screens an asset to the entire campus, no longer being limited to one room. Your displays can be used for a range of applications in environments outside of the classroom.
