They are excellent tools that can turn any lesson into an engaging adventure. Whether you're teaching language arts, any STEM class, art, history, or any other subject, these activities will “spark” some enjoyment and engage both you and your students in the weeks leading up to winter break.
Educators worldwide face the challenge of assessing students effectively. The shift to remote learning during the COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the need for interactive assessments to keep students engaged, whether in-person or online. For instance, interactive displays became valuable tools for remote learning and adhering to social distancing guidelines when students returned to in-class instruction. Digital display solutions enabled collaborative learning, firmly establishing interactive assessments as a modern educational foundation.

As an educator, ensuring the safety of your students is of the utmost importance. Schools are not only responsible for educating students but also for keeping them safe while on campus. In order to ensure that your school is prepared for any emergency, it's essential to have an integrated communication system in place, provide professional development opportunities for teachers, and utilize digital display solutions to improve communication and safety.
Boxlight interactive displays support OTA (over-the-air) firmware updates. This functionality requires that the built-in Android OS on your display is connected to a live internet connection. OTA firmware updates are helpful in keeping your panel up to date with the latest apps versions and bug fixes available. By using the OTA method versus a manual method, you retain all your settings on files.
Incorporating advanced technology to improve campus communication is critical to boosting safety in a school. As district and school leaders continue to look for ways to help those in the school community feel safe, interactive display technology has become a key tool. For instance, administrators can broadcast alerts and updates to the interactive displays in a school quickly so that teachers and students receive important information when it’s needed. With a solid and detailed communication plan, schools can implement innovative technology for more than just teaching and learning.
