Pupils are surrounded by digital devices in the home and at school, it’s part of everyday life – the principle of the Avocor VTF series, launched at BETT 2016, is to integrate the display at the front of the class into daily teaching.
Teaching and technology has converged in the classroom – we have witnessed an interactive revolution over the last 20 years seeing teaching move from dusty chalkboards to large-format displays. These interactive devices are now regarded as a ‘must-have’ technology to facilitate the core teaching and learning function of demonstration and modelling. By moving away from propriety software or the Android operating system, choosing instead a Windows 10 software platform – instantly recognisable worldwide, we have removed the need for in-depth training programmes, meaning teachers can spend more time teaching rather than learning how to get the best out of their technology and software.
Teachers can walk straight up to the screen and access and annotate directly into a range of familiar Microsoft software packages such as PowerPoint, Excel, Word and OneNote straight from the panel. Another unique feature is the InGlass™ touch technology, offering responsive, smooth, intelligent and accurate touch. Avocor VTF screens are the first to offer this touch technology in a panel range. InGlass is up to five times more responsive than other screen technology, meaning that there is no more waiting for ink to ‘catch up’ wasting precious teaching time. This, combined with a 4K resolution, means users will also see the benefits of precise and accurate annotations, no matter how small, and so will all the class, no matter where they sit in the classroom. For our students who are truly digital natives, using the VTF range of panels from Avocor is like experiencing a giant tablet on the wall.
Mark Mason, Head of Sales at Avocor said of the BETT nomination: “We are delighted to be shortlisted for a BETT award. We endevour to create interactive technology which meets the daily needs of the teacher and student both in and beyond the classroom, so to be considered for such an esteemed award is a honour and privilege.”
