Of course, it can be difficult to maintain the whole class’s attention, whilst simultaneously checking on individuals and giving feedback. It becomes much easier when teachers are provided with a tablet, allowing them to connect with their front-of-class display, and effectively control that screen from anywhere in the room.
Whether you download an app to the tablet, such as Clevershare, or use the native sharing capabilities of your device (Chromecast, Air Server etc), your IMPACT interactive display has both options built in to the firmware. It takes a matter of seconds to connect, and your tablet becomes a mini version of what is on the big-screen, with full control capabilities.
“Teachers are sharing things onto the Clevertouch [interactive panel] with the Clevershare – that application has been a game changer for us, to allow the teachers to move around the classroom, and get more interactions with students, instead of being static.” Amber Franzdorf, Technology Coordinator, Bryan City School District.
Students are highly motivated by regular assessment in the classroom. Knowing you are on the right track, or being guided back onto it, boosts confidence, reduces mistakes, and opens a line of conversation on the topic at hand. Using Clevershare in this way gives the freedom to teach from anywhere in the classroom. It enables teachers to check work in real-time, give instant feedback, and answer questions, all whilst still engaging with the entire class.
