Classrooms have completely evolved over the past 20+ years. We all remember the days of messy chalk on blackboards and overhead projectors. Those big, bulky pieces of machinery wheeled in on a cart in the middle of the classroom. Who doesn’t remember the thrill of being allowed to write on the transparency with a dry-erase marker and seeing the results projected on the wall? Fortunately, there has been an evolution in how educators can display their lessons.
When technology like interactive whiteboards were introduced into classrooms, it was a game changer. Teachers dropped the chalk to teach with a mouse, stylus and a swipe of their index finger. Students born into the digital age could not resonate with anything static – they want interaction. Interactive whiteboards invite students to engage with the lessons and teachers aren’t limited in what they can present to students.

With the ability to use the display as a touchscreen device, an interactive whiteboard allows teachers to accomplish a wide range of tasks, from presenting to collaboration. Here are five benefits to using an interactive display in the classroom:
