Why replace interactive white boards with Clevertouch? It’s a question that we are frequently asked by schools considering upgrading their equipment, so here are a few reasons that should be considered.
Using a Clevertouch is more economical than an interactive whiteboard and projector. There are no costly consumables such as lamps or filters, and no downtime whilst a new lamp is on order. The power consumption of a Clevertouch is less than that of a traditional whiteboard solution with a projector, amplifier and speakers, which offers a financial saving. With many schools trying to reduce their carbon footprint as well as trying to cut costs this is worthy of consideration.
Because there is no projector, there is no risk of a child being in the path of a light source. There is no shadow cast by the teacher as they use the screen and the crystal clear displays offer good viewing angles and a crisp, sharp image. Clevertouch screens are durable and hardwearing, made of toughened safety glass and sturdy steel frames.
A Clevertouch screen does not require specific pens, this means no more hunting for the missing black, and no pricey replacements when it can’t be found. No calibration is required, so a Clevertouch on a trolley can be moved from classroom to ICT suite to school hall and back again with no additional set up needed.
Every Clevertouch comes with the impressive Clever Software Suite comprising Lynx 5 and DisplayNote. Initial training for this software is given as part of your installation and further training is offered through regular webinars. The software licenses are for life, so there are no costly renewals, and all upgrades are available via our website. Files that have been created on other software packages and stored as CFF files are able to be used on a Clevertouch meaning that a gradual roll out of Clevertouch screens to replace existing interactive whiteboard solutions will not affect compatibility across a school site.
These days children are familiar and adept with touch screen technology. With wide use of tablets and smartphones at home, children find Clevertouch intuitive to use and an engaging way to learn. Using a Clevertouch is a fun, interesting and informative way to deliver the curriculum.
Collaboration changes the dynamic of a classroom. Using a Clevertouch with DisplayNote means that a class can share ideas and students can share their work with their teacher and other students effectively in real time. Presenters can mirror content from their PC or Mac to any connected participant’s device, whether they’re in the same room or connecting remotely. Cloud functionality enables users to collaborate, share content and ideas with other departments, in other locations and on other devices.
All Clevertouch screens come with a three year onsite deinstall/reinstall warranty. Clevertouch was the first touchscreen solution for the education market and is the market leader in this sector.
