Interactive Panels

Interactive Panels 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 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.

A real advance, though, has been the possibility working with Android and even Windows 10. This has considerably increased the scope of interactive touch screens or interactive panels.

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.

Costs have also come down and, all in all, interactive touch panels with their increased features well over and above those found with interactive whiteboards have got to be the future for todayĺs classrooms.
