Presentation tools have increased in popularity for educators and entrepreneurs who want to share their information and ideas to a sizable group of audience. Interactive applications are in high demand for trainers and businesses that want to sprinkle some bits of technology in the teaching and information sharing experience. One such tool that has since outsmarted conventional blackboards is the electronic white board.
In the simplest terms, an electronic white board is a device that combines several IT attributes in offering a shared experience in learning for small or large groups of audience as well as for distant learning and information sharing. Let’s take a quick look at why more and more people now prefer electronic whiteboards as opposed to the traditional white boards and blackboards.
1. The electronic whiteboard is excellent for demonstrations: Many technology teachers and specialists have reported enthusiasm for the board citing that is makes it easier to show students how to use particular applications. The ability to write on the board using a stylus or a finger makes it easy to point out important features of the software or program.
2. It is a colorful tool: Multiple researchers have demonstrated that students and participants in general, respond and easily internalize displays in which color is employed. The markings can be customized both in the highlighter and pen features to display a numbers of different colors.
3. Grabs user attention and encourages interactivity: When it comes to teaching and information sharing, attention is one of the most important, and unfortunately, the most elusive attribute to cultivate. With electronic white boards, you can easily raise the audience’s curiosity and keep them engaged even in long training sessions. Apart from coming in handy for visually impaired participants, these kinds of boards are perfect in promoting inclusivity and interactivity amongst your audience.
4. Ease of integration: Electronic white boards are very compatible and easy to integrate with other ICT and AV devices including computers, projectors, response systems and visualizers. This allows you to seamlessly blend them with your existing tools without having to restructure your ICT structure.
5. It can accommodate different learning styles: Audio learners can launch a class discussion; tactile learners can take advantage of touching and marking on the board; while visual learners can learn through all the developmental stages as they roll on the board.
