K-12 schools are increasingly searching for the latest technological solution that will create a dynamic learning environment that empowers teachers and enhances the learning experience for their students. 

Administrators seeking to make meaningful investments in education technology to support their school district’s mission can leverage innovative and low-maintenance interactive display boards as an ideal long-term investment to personalize learning, enhance collaboration and enable a successful hybrid learning environment.

With 20+ years of established industry dominance, Promethean interactive display solutions provide comprehensive benefits to continually empower educators with user-friendly tools and ensure schools exceed education goals and learning initiatives.

Why Teachers Should Use Promethean Interactive Display Boards in K-12 Schools

K-12 schools are positioned to benefit greatly from leveraging the capabilities of interactive displays in their classrooms. Understanding the extensive benefits of a robust Promethean interactive display will allow educators to have no problem making the long-term technological investment as they know the invaluable ROI is derived from providing children the greatest opportunity for lifelong success in and outside the classroom.

In addition to enriching the curriculum with fun interactive lessons, here are the added benefits that come with an intelligent Promethean interactive display.

Ease of Use

Promethean interactive display boards provide an intuitive user interface and powers on in seconds to ensure a smooth end-user experience. The latest cutting-edge interactive display technology ensures a natural writing experience which mitigates user frustration and enhances teacher readability so they can focus on curriculum delivery rather than fixating on malfunctioning or outdated technology. Promethean displays also come equipped with finger and multi-touch recognition so multiple users can simultaneously and immediately write, draw, and annotate.

Screen Share Capabilities

This powerful feature allows up to 39 mobile devices to be wirelessly connected to the interactive display at any one time. This enables complete classroom participation by providing students the flexibility to easily share their work with the class from the comfort of their workstation. Teachers can also leverage screen capture to provide instant feedback and analysis on student work.

Conducive to STEM Curriculum

According to Promethean World, STEM and collaborative learning (57% and 43% respectively) were identified as top learning priorities for schools and districts. Promethean interactive displays for the classroom are able to better support a STEM-based curriculum because they feature robust digital tools that enhance the educator’s capabilities. For example, with 20 simultaneous touch points, teachers and students can leverage the intuitive user interface for increased collaboration and participation. With integrated Wi-Fi and additional available Bluetooth connectivity, the Promethean interactive display makes it easier for teachers to connect STEM-based learning applications and accessories.

According to a study conducted by Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS), they found that school districts that abandoned traditional lecturing in favor of active learning for the attainment of higher degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics raised average grades by a half letter grade.

Distance Learning Enablement

School safety is more important than ever during the COVID-19 pandemic and with the right intelligent technology, administrators can enable a hybrid learning environment without compromising safety. Promethean interactive displays provide teachers the opportunity to securely connect and collaborate with remote learners using any conferencing app. This device-agnostic approach enables an untethered teaching experience, facilitating the design and implementation of a creative learning experience that builds critical thinking and problem-solving skills for students. Device agnosticism aims to offer a seamless experience, in this case, a seamless remote learning experience, across many devices and systems without the need for special adaptations.

Integrated Technology

Promethean interactive display technology enables the integration of various other technologies to enhance student learning. Teachers are able to connect their computers, digital cameras, microscopes, and any other devices that will aid and enhance classroom instruction. The capability to implement various forms of technology with the Promethean interactive display allows teachers to leverage a variety of media types to integrate into their interactive lessons such as photos, graphs, maps, illustrations, or videos to inspire and generate thoughtful classroom discussions.

Continuous Added Features and Security Updates

With easily applied, over-the-air (OTA) firmware updates, Promethean interactive displays remain optimized for maximum security and regularly updated with innovative new features. Continual optimization through firmware updates ensures a fortified cybersecurity defense and allows educators to expand their teaching toolkit while empowering their students using the latest educational touch screen technology.

Environmentally Friendly and Cost-Effective

Promethean interactive display boards provide school districts a cost-effective solution for creating a more environmentally friendly school environment. With the deployment of low-maintenance interactive displays, school districts can begin to eliminate their reliance on paper, photocopiers, and ink.

Enhancing Your Students’ Learning Experiences with an Intelligent Interactive Promethean Display Board

Interactive displays have revolutionized the classroom experience by providing teachers and students access to intelligent education technology tools aimed to engage and empower users. The powerful features and benefits of a Promethean interactive display instantly transform any mundane classroom into an engaging, collaborative learning environment.

School districts that partner with trusted interactive display specialists to implement a custom and comprehensive Promethean interactive display solution will provide their students a sustainable easy-to-use teaching tool that enhances collaboration, enables hybrid learning, and ultimately provides the greatest opportunity for lifelong success in and outside the classroom.
