It’s no secret that students today are easily distracted and teachers often struggle to keep them engaged in learning. However, with the increasing integration of technology in the classroom, teachers now have access to innovative solutions to cope with challenges such as student engagement and uniqueness in classroom instruction. Interactive flat panels (IFPs) are at the forefront of this technological revolution. These touchscreen devices are similar to televisions in appearance but far more interactive, enabling a dynamic learning experience. 

Why Social Sector Investors should consider setting up a smart classroom with an IFP panel?

Touch-based devices drive student excitement and engagement:

Teachers consistently observe that interactive flat panels (IFPs) with touch-based interfaces lead to significant excitement among students. Teachers say, “Students in our schools had limited exposure to large screens and touch devices.” Consequently, when IFP panels were introduced, their excitement to interact and explore IFP Panels and its various features increased. Students feel happy while engaging and learning through IFPs in the classroom. One of the benefits of IFP panels in a classroom is increased energy and focus of students in learning.

Multi-Student Interaction with Interactive Flat Panel (IFP) as Smart Board

Another benefit of IFP panels in classrooms is the capability to turn them into smart boards. Large, multi-touch displays of IFPs function like smart boards, enabling multiple students to simultaneously interact with content. This allows teachers to plan exercises and games where students can write answers, draw images, write tables, and engage in other hands-on learning activities. This way, “Our entire class remains engaged and connected to the classroom learning, leading to improved performance”, said one of the teachers from schools of Noida where we had implemented iPrep Digital Class on the IFP panel.

IFPs Offer a Versatile Blend of Digital and Traditional Teaching

Teachers greatly appreciate the ability to use a pen on the IFP panel screen, as it allows them to integrate multimedia teaching resources and smart boards seamlessly. In our interactions with teachers who have adopted interactive flat panels, we’ve observed their enthusiasm for leveraging tools like iPrep, a preloaded learning platform on the IFP, to enhance their lessons. They frequently use video lessons from iPrep, pausing at key moments to elaborate on concepts independently. This interactive approach enables them to provide personalized explanations by pausing the video, highlighting specific aspects, and then resuming the video. Thus, they maintain the personal touch of their teaching with technology. This underscores one of the key benefits of IFP panels as a smart teaching tool, combining the advantages of multimedia resources with personalized classroom instruction.

Annotation tool on IFP panels maximizing teaching efficiency

Many teachers using IFP Panels implemented in their schools have discussed the benefits of using annotation tools that turn interactive flat panels (IFP) into smart teaching boards. With the annotation tool on the IFP, teachers are finding it easier to illustrate various concepts during explanations. For instance, they can effortlessly use mind maps to explain the flow or processes of concepts. Further, using elements like shapes, rulers, and compasses facilitates an easy explanation of mathematical figures and concepts. One of the teachers from the school of Noida said, “Previously, ensuring accuracy in drawings, particularly concerning lines and angles, was time-consuming. However, with the use of elements such as mind maps, figures, and shapes through the annotation tool on the IFP panel, we can now draw and explain more efficiently.” This not only simplifies the teaching but also enhances engagement for students, who are called forward to present their learning.

IFP Panel allows to customize classrooms for different subjects

Several teachers appreciate the option to incorporate varied subject backgrounds on the board, such as Math, English, Hindi, and Music. “Using the smart board’s background feature enables us to customize the classroom environment for different subjects”, said one of the teachers using an IFP panel. She added, “We leverage this functionality for conducting writing exercises. This we especially do with students in lower grades. This brings them great joy as they eagerly participate and practice writing on the board.” Using a smart class setup enhances overall class engagement and makes students want all of their classes to be conducted in the smart classroom.

IFPs Becoming cost-effective digital education solution for Social Sector Initiatives?

  • IFPs (Interactive Flat Panels) are becoming increasingly cost-effective for smart classrooms. While premium brands offer high-quality products and superior service, emerging brands provide more affordable options. To bridge the service gap, companies such as iDream Education offer comprehensive on-site support, teacher training, device monitoring, timetable preparation, progress tracking, usage updates, and more.

With the numerous benefits of IFP Panels classroom, it is also an affordable way to integrate touch IFP panels in classrooms. Just a few years ago, smart TVs were the standard for budget-friendly smart classrooms. Now, IFPs are a budget-conscious way to integrate a premium smart class experience. Further, it helps NGOs, corporates, PSUs, and other ecosystem partners drive the meaningful impact of social sector education initiatives.

To conclude,

The seamless integration of whiteboard functionality and access to dynamic digital content makes IFP Panels a popular choice for social sector investors. This means teachers can use them for writing and showing digital content without switching the modes of teaching. This explains their rising popularity among NGOs, corporates, PSUs, and forward-thinking investors who are looking to invest in technology-enhanced education.
