School and academies are under more pressure than ever before to stretch budgets and deliver an exceptional return on investment. But when it comes to the purchase of high-value items, such as interactive displays, is it really possible to find incredible value options that can still offer ‘must-have’ edtech?
Vestel, the world’s number one interactive display producer, explores the issue, presenting Android-powered displays as a possible solution.
- Interactive displays with Android on board can offer incredible value. Designed with Android built-in, they require no additional PC hardware, IT proficiency or training to use, providing a quick-start, user-friendly experience.
- Thanks to their embedded Android OS, these displays offer teachers access to a vast library of free-to-download content, enabling them to review and use every teaching application from periodic tables and scientific calculators to challenge-bases applications, which gamify learning.
- For additional value, Android-based displays sometimes come with built-in annotation tools, which work across any application. Exceptionally user-friendly for teachers and students alike, they ensure that touch inputs can be used to erase as well as write notes.
- Designed with up to ten-point touch control, Android-based displays often come with infrared (IR) touch screens. Ideal for more practical science and art lessons, these infrared (IR) technology designs ensure touch responsiveness with damp or gloved hands.
- To encourage interaction and save energy when the displays are not in use, they can come with optional proximity sensors, which light up whenever anyone approached the screens.
- Android-powered displays work perfectly with the free-to-download EShare application, offering an incredible two-way screen sharing experience. With this app, teachers are not only able to share any pre-prepared class activity from their own iOS or Android device, but also from the classroom interactive display to numerous student laptops or tablets.
- Some Android-powered displays offer exceptionally sharp 3840 X 2160 UHD resolution. Supporting UHD video playback, they bring educational content to life, enabling more information to be absorbed at a glance.
- Some Android displays come with DisplayPort inputs and outputs, which means that they can be tiled together in multi-screen formations for the presentation of students work during open days and assemblies.
- Look out for quick-start support features. For more intuitive, quick and user-friendly control, some of the displays come with an apps navigation button, which offers shortcuts to specific application actions. Boosting net learning time, several also support the launch of up to 8 applications at a time.
- Android-powered displays, such as the Vestel IFD screens, are versatile teaching companions. Thanks to their OPS compatibility with Windows PC modules, they can also be used with any Windows software options.
