driving force in this area. “Dedicated software packages like NEC’s DisplayNote allow the user to not just present and annotate but also to share content and collaborate with multiple participants across multiple devices. Apart from several other benefits, multi-touch displays such as NEC’s V463 and V652 offer plug and play installation, don’t need any calibration or additional driver installation. This range will be completed toward the end of 2014 when NEC launches the V552 and V801,” she added. NEC supports research and education


projects evaluating innovative teaching methods, with its DisplayNote solution analysed in a study in the industrial engineering degree programme at Dusseldorf’s University of Applied Sciences. In 2013, NEC was chosen as an associate partner to work with education ministries and schools within the EU’s Creative Classrooms Lab, a two-year initiative bringing together policy makers, innovative teachers and technology suppliers to develop tablet-

based solutions supporting new learning and teaching methods. NEC is providing all interested pilot schools with a free license to use DisplayNote software, with over 20 schools in eight countries participating currently. VII Networks are a small specialist


audio visual company specialising in the new state-of-the-art, large format interactive touchscreens. With manufacturing facilities in Shenzhen, China, VII are now producing leading- edge technology revolutionising the classroom. The Alpha Touch interactive screen is a sleek, yet robust unit, incorporating anti-glare 6mm glass, freeze function, integrated android system, remote control, air-server, mirror-casting and collaborative software and comes in a range of sizes from 42” to 84”; together with three to five year swap-out-on-site warranties.


Over 350 schools already integrate the screens into over 2,000 classrooms; benefiting from this innovative approach to teaching and learning. Being a smaller company, but with


big aspirations, VII are able to adapt to any situation, offering free-of-charge demonstrations of the hardware and software to individual schools, cluster groups or larger delegate conferences; enabling schools to make an informed decision on how it can benefit from this new technology. The bristling array of interactive


screens which have emerged in recent years, and which continue to develop, ensure teachers and lecturers can hold their subjects’ atention like never before. Advances in technology bring ever more sophisticated interactivity into the classroom and lecture hall, pushing pupils and students to their full potential. With all manner of information and content available instantly, educators have come a long way from copying from a textbook onto a blackboard, and learners should never be bored again. ET
