Choosing the Most Engaging Technology for the Learning Environment
Transforming teaching – the SEA perspective
Interactive projectors – or flat panel displays?
- Cost: Interactive projectors are a fraction of the price of interactive flat panels – offering attractive cost benefits towards education budgets.
- Glare: Flat panel displays suffer from glare caused by classroom lighting or daylight – which is not present on interactive projector screens.
- Flexibility and scalability: Interactive projectors project quality images onto almost any solid surface – instantly turning dry erase boards, walls and tabletops into interactive surfaces. In contrast, interactive flat panels introduce space restrictions.
- Image quality: The interactive projector stands out for picture quality. Touch-enabled projected images can go up to 100’’, twice the size of an expensive 50’’ touchscreen flat panel. Plus, resolution of interactive projectors is available beyond Full HD, for vivid clarity.
- Screen size: Of paramount importance in big classroom settings, the larger screens offered by interactive projectors deliver magnified content to every student in the classroom.
