Integrating technology into the classroom environment has become a need of the hour. Today’s generation is tech-savvy, so it is more important than ever to incorporate technology in classrooms to engage students and enhance learning outcomes. However, simply having access to technology isn’t enough; knowing how to leverage its full potential is key to maximizing its benefits.

It is no surprise that interactive whiteboards, or smart boards, are increasingly becoming prevalent in classrooms. With all the new features and technologies available, we understand that it can get overwhelming. Hence, we’ve compiled some tips below to help teachers make the most out of interactive whiteboards, specifically the Sharp Aquos Boards.

Collaborative Features

Sharp Aquos boards enable a multi-writing feature, meaning multiple people can simultaneously write on the board. Teachers can use this feature to create interactive lessons where students can collaborate together for an engaging learning experience. Think quizzes, games, trivia, and much more.

Multimedia Content

With smart boards or interactive whiteboards, teachers can mix up their training materials so their lessons are not text-heavy. They can mix videos, images, and GIFs for the ultimate engaging lesson. These boards also come with web search functionality, which allows teachers to easily find and incorporate relevant content into their teaching materials.

Writing Pen

With the user-friendly pen software, teachers can add a touch of creativity to their presentations. They can easily customize the pen by adjusting the line thickness and color or erase, highlight, and annotate, all with a screen tap. It’s just like writing on a whiteboard, but better.

Compatible Technology

Compatibility is a BIG factor when it comes to choosing the right technology for classrooms. Luckily, the Sharp Aquos boards are compatible with both Windows and Mac operating systems, so educators can seamlessly incorporate these displays into classrooms, regardless of their preferred platforms.

Integrate with Apps

We live in an age of apps. Schools use a variety of applications as educational tools, so it is crucial for smart boards to be compatible with different apps. The Aquos board is powered by a mini PC, which means preferred applications can be easily installed on the PC. This way, teachers can access them directly from the board, creating a well-integrated and seamless teaching experience. For added flexibility, teachers can also use the built-in screen-sharing application to share information from their individual computers.

Integrate With Classroom Technology

While the smart board is an important piece of technology on its own, it is also crucial for it to sync with other classroom technology. The Aquos Board enables teachers to seamlessly connect with Sharp MFPs so that all classroom technology is connected and integrated. This allows teachers to easily print documents directly from the smart board. Not only is this convenient, but it also saves time.

Maintaining Your Smart Board

As with any piece of technology, proper maintenance is essential to ensure optimal performance and longevity. Here are some good housekeeping tips:

  • Reboot the unit periodically, especially if it remains on for long periods of time. For most classrooms, once a week or once every two weeks is sufficient.
  • Although the Aquos Board is smudge resistant, keeping up with the cleaning will ensure superior visuals at all times. Wipe down the screen using a microfiber cloth only. Avoid using any harsh chemicals, and opt for a certified glass/touch screen cleaner if necessary. Spray on the microfiber cloth first before gently wiping off any smudges or fingerprints.
  • Stay proactive in addressing any technical issues or concerns, and consult the manufacturer’s guidelines for troubleshooting or the service provider for maintenance procedures.
