Participative Learning with Interactive Displays

Educators are always seeking the best ways to engage students in learning. The advent of technology plays a significant role in advancing student engagement. As in the picture above, getting students to actively participate in learning is key for their development and understanding of complex concepts. Laptops and tablets in the classroom offer many personalized learning experiences. 51% of students in the United States use tablets on a regular school week within the classroom. (Deloitte, 2016)1  The usage of interactive whiteboards within the classroom in a typical school week is 45% (Deloitte, 2016) Studies find that touch interaction provides a higher level of usability for more effective learning.2  Researchers find that interactive displays are more likely to captivate pupils' attention when they have to do something with it, rather than passively looking at it. The interaction with the display is the learning catalyst.3


What Is Cooperative Learning?

Over time, classrooms have evolved from using traditional tools like chalkboards and overhead projectors to more interactive displays, often referred to as touch screen panels, digital blackboards, smart boards, touch screens, or collaboration displays. Large touch sensitive screens or multi-touch displays provide cooperative learning opportunities for students. This article will examine the six key benefits of incorporating Sharp Interactive Displays in the classroom.

Student Engagement

Interactive displays can effectively engage students in learning. Hands-on activities, like interactive displays, enable students to interact with the material by touching, drawing, and writing on the board. This type of immediate feedback can be useful in assessing student progress and identifying areas of strength and weakness for both students and teachers.


Accessible Learning

These display boards cater to different learning styles. Interactive displays can help students with varying learning applications. They can see, hear, and touch the material, accommodating visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners. Teachers can enhance learning by incorporating multimedia elements, including movies, PowerPoint presentations, and graphics. Accessibility features such as text-to-speech and screen readers can help students with learning difficulties or disabilities access content more easily. Learning becomes more personalized, expands boundaries, offers greater stimulation, and forms connections with students.4

Interactive displays are user-friendly and low maintenance, allowing for marking of data using a stylus or finger. This eliminates the need for extra tools and makes it a practical choice for teachers seeking to simplify their classroom setup and maintain a tidy environment.


Online Resources

One advantage of interactive displays is their internet connectivity, which allows teachers to access a wide range of resources including content, videos, games, programs, and lessons. This enhances the learning experience for students and saves teachers time by eliminating the need to write, read, and work from physical materials.

Interactive displays can promote group work and collaboration among students as they can work on the same display at the same time, leading to the development of important social skills. Large interactive displays provide a clear advantage over the use of classic forms of collaboration such as laptops which constitute single-user learning environments.5



Interactive displays provide versatility, accommodating various graphics such as photos, illustrations, graphs, charts, Venn diagrams, tables, and videos. Teachers can customize the content to meet their students' needs. Moreover, the Sharp AQUOS BOARD® interactive display supports plug-and-play connectivity with different cloud-based platforms, including Google Classroom, for effortless integration with current classroom technology.
