DIB have worked closely with Mentone Girls’ Grammar School to install modern education technology across many of their classrooms. Recently, the school wanted to bring interactive displays to their art classes. The DIB team designed an interactive solution so that they could share the technology between multiple classrooms as needed. With this setup, the interactive display can cater to groups of all sizes and a variety of different uses around the school. For example, a teacher can simply bring the large touchscreen to the front of the room to use in a presentation and then later, a smaller group can bring it into their space to work on. In many cases this is also a very cost-effective solution, allowing the school to buy one interactive display to share among multiple classrooms.
Two portable systems were created with 65″ Hitachi Touchscreens mounted on Gilkon trolleys. The Gilkon FP7 was used and is especially designed for schools. It is heavy duty and features motorised height adjustments at the touch of a button.
The 65″ Hitachi Touchscreen is the perfect way to boost engagement and participation in the classroom. Electronic resources like diagrams, videos, and PowerPoint presentations can be shared and annotated in response to questions and discussions. The interactive flat panel supports up to six touches simultaneously, providing an accessible way for teachers and students to collaborate with one another. This also allows for the use of intuitive multitouch gesture controls like pinch to zoom. The touchscreen monitor also produces a vibrant, detailed, and bright image in full HD. This makes the screen easy for students to view from all over the classroom.
The 65″ Hitachi touchscreen features a built-in PC running Windows 8 or 10 These operating systems boast a powerful, yet intuitive touch interface that lets you run all of the familiar Windows programs and apps while utilising the ease-of-use of a touchscreen. VGA, HDMI, audio, and USB inputs were also included in case teachers or students wish to connect their laptops to the systems.
Altogether this makes for a flexible and dynamic solution that is perfect for the modern learning environment.
