The use of interactive whiteboards is a great way to make any meeting more productive. The features of interactive whiteboards make it possible to show concepts in many different ways and to make them easy for everyone in the room to see.
Interactive whiteboards have been around for a few years, but it's only recently that they began to use a wide range of features that make them so versatile. The whiteboards used today have multimedia capabilities that allow for the use of video as well as touchpad technology to allow for many types of usage. In a meeting, these can be used to quickly illustrate concepts through video, illustrations and more for a well-rounded introduction to ideas and concepts. A lesson can be filled in with pictures, video, and notes to give people a more thorough view of the subject.
Multiple Learning Types
There are various ways to learn, and all of them can be used with interactive whiteboards. When ideas are presented through sight and sound, more people will be able to take in the concepts and learn them in the way that works best for them. The use of these whiteboards makes the presented ideas highly visible for everyone in the room to see, and students don't have to all crowd around a laptop to see what is being presented. And because the boards can also be written on, students and teachers can be a part of the lesson by interacting with it. This can be helpful for students with learning disabilities to be presented with clear information that connects with them.
A boring lesson taught on a chalkboard is often easily forgotten. Simply seeing words or numbers written on a board is just one way of presenting information, and it's a difficult thing for today's students to pay attention to. The interactive whiteboard use in the classroom presents information in ways that is closer to the way they are used to taking it in. And like the phones and laptops students are so used to using, it's interactive and bright, delivering a lot of information in one space.
