Make Classroom Engagement Fun With New Technological Innovations, Says The Remark Group

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - June 14, 2013) - Whilst the good old chalkboard has historically been the teachers' tool of choice - subsequently replaced with the whiteboard - the latest technological innovations means classroom engagement can be heightened and even made fun, according to leading provider of business solutions, the Remark Group. Pupils and students alike can now enjoy an enhanced learning experience with new technology including interactive whiteboards and classroom audience response systems.

The whiteboards can be integrated with a PC, so software or the internet can be utilised by the teacher or lecturer to make their lessons much more visual and engaging. A 'marker pen' facilitates a drag and drop function to control the PC and annotate or highlight presentations. Audience response systems allow for students to use remote hand-held devices to convey responses to questions.

David Lyons, IT services director for the Remark Group, explains: "The benefits of using electronic whiteboard technologies in the education environment are obvious in relation to heightened engagement; however there are functional benefits too. Not only can notes be made and saved, to facilitate easy distribution among students, but also cursive writing can be translated into text making it even easier to share learnings quickly and effectively, ensuring students get the exact notes they need.

"For the primary and secondary education environment, audience response systems can be motivational to pupils' learning, providing teachers with an effective tool to get them more involved. When it comes to interactive whiteboards in the classroom, incorporating images, drawing and writing programmes - and everything the internet has to offer - means the sky is the limit."

According to Remark, it isn't just the education sector that can benefit from AV installation. Used increasingly in the boardroom, interactive whiteboards can bring presentations into a new league and allow for more effective training sessions due to the options available for pulling in various information sources and visuals - as well as the notes saving capabilities. Audience response systems are also used widely in business presentations given in auditoriums and theatres.
