Wacom's interactive pen displays turn static material into active and engaging content, even in large lecture halls.
Large lecture halls can be challenging environments to make teaching interactive and engaging. Interactive whiteboards are not big enough or practical in large venues. Traditional whiteboards force the instructor to write very big to aid legibility and prevent the incorporation of digital content. Plus, having your back turned to the class for large portions of time can create disconnects.
Wacom’s interactive pen displays meet this challenge – turning static material into active and engaging content. Communicate visually by marking up and annotating digital content. Add drawings, sketches and diagrams quickly and easily to elaborate on key concepts and spontaneously integrate new ideas into the discussion.
The pen display is a comfortable size to work on and your output can be projected to any size, meaning it can be used in even the largest lecture halls. And the pen display can be positioned so that the instructor can continue to face the class even as they present.
Wacom’s family of interactive pen displays are extremely intuitive because you write or draw directly on-screen, on top of whatever you are viewing on the display but with all the ease of writing on paper. When connected to a projector your ideas and information can be shared with a large audience.
- Our pen displays are extremely easy to use, so even infrequent users can immediately include them as part of their class.
- Teachers can stay connected with their students. Even as they interact with their lesson plans, teachers can maintain visual contact with the class. Whiteboards cause teachers to turn their back to students, potentially missing raised hands or visual clues about whether students comprehend the material.
- Interactive pen displays encourage greater class participation and interest because they allow spontaneous incorporation of new information, changing lessons from static to dynamic.
- The screen is small enough to write on comfortably and naturally by the user, but the output can be projected large enough to be clearly viewed in venues of all sizes.
- Wacom's pen displays are software-neutral. They can be used with any of your favorite software applications.
