Learning is an amazing part of the human experience, and it’s had a transformation since the days when we’d stare out the window during school, bored out of our brains listening to that monotonous economics teacher. The world of learning, for all ages, has changed for the better – meaning it’s more engaging, more interactive and more effective than ever. Many educators and institutions are seeking to improve the interactivity of their learning environment with digital displays, and here is how you can too!
Remember when ‘smart boards’ first became a thing? We all thought they were the height of technology and the beginning of a new era of learning: a revolution of what the classroom would look like. In one way, we were correct – smart boards improved interactivity, but LCD and LED screens have taken it one step further. These digital screens are perfect for all learning environments, from kindergarten to high school to university. They allow students to share what they’ve been learning and conduct presentations in the smoothest way possible.
LED screens have become a super popular and valuable feature to classrooms and lecture theatres in universities across Australia. In the classroom, students are able to maximise the interactivity of their presentations by using LED screens. This could involve getting other students involved in their presentation by asking questions and using the screens to give supporting evidence for answers.
In the lecture theatre, display walls are a huge asset. Lecturers have turned to polls, in which students participate using their phones, to improve interactivity and to create a more engaging learning environment. Say goodbye to the days of sleeping, doodling or straight up zoning out during lectures!
Another massive improvement to the interactivity of your learning environment lies with portable engagement tools. This could mean iPads, laptops and anything else that assists students to learn interactively. Twenty years ago in primary schools, ‘interactive learning’ using technology meant going into the ‘computer room’ (with 30 chunky desktops and monitors in it) and using KidPix. Today, students can do a whole lot more than that, including accessing learning planners, working out equations, completing spelling challenges and more.
Remote learning has become much more widespread for all ages, from primary school to university students. Audio visual technology has an important role to play in making remote learning more interactive. This includes better webcam and audio systems and screen-sharing technology.
