Interactive Touch Screens


Interactive Touch Screens have come a long way since the advent of panels designed for LED TVs. Designed for the learning and training environment, they have evolved into truly interactive touch screens using powerful touch technology.



Interactive Panels
For a classroom environment, touch screen technology becomes a real benefit as student participation is greatly enhanced. Unfortunately, as with computer speeds, the number of points of touch have gone from 6 points to as many as 20 points, an increase that is looking increasingly academic. Few, if any, school or education environment is ever likely to use more than 6 points of touch.

Prices have also come down and interactive touch screens with their increased features well over and above those found with interactive whiteboards have got to be the future for today’s classrooms.

A real advance, though, has been the possibility of working with Android and even Windows operating systems. This has increased the scope of interactive touch screens considerably and may apps are available for the Android operating system.

In many a case an optional Windows PC can be added on, a feature that is likely to prove extremely useful in the corporate meeting room environment. In a school environment, where there are multiple teachers using a single interactive touch screen or panel, the advantage is less so. The teacher would probably prefer to connect their own laptop.
