Interactive Panels, which is the best for Education?

NETbuilder Education

Our top 5 interactive Panel for Education

Interactive technology is changing the age-old conventional learning experience in Schools, Colleges and Universities. They are helping to move classrooms into dynamic learning environments by providing interactive and collaborative learning experiences.

You may already be aware of the common projector-based systems, such as interactive whiteboards. However, these systems are becoming redundant due to constant failure, the need to continually maintain them and fading display leading to them being almost impossible to see when sunlight enters the classroom.

The release of the interactive panel in 2014 has created a resolution for these problems. Interactive panels provide the opportunity for you to interact with your students without leaving them stuck in the dark.

Since their release the market for interactive panels has become vast and varied. They are becoming more and more popular and a common addition to the classrooms.

However, it’s not an easy task choosing which is right for you and your students.

Luckily, we’ve done all the work for you. So, here’s our top 5 interactive panels on the market.
