DisplayNote is a new app that lets users share all kinds of content on their hard drives with multiple users across a wide range of third party devices including laptops, tablets, Smartphone’s and desktop PC’s.
The content can be used to interact with students in real time and makes learning fun and easier for students to remember – simply because they are given the opportunity to engage with content. Most children learn quicker and retain information better through practical learning as opposed to passive leaning.
The app can be accessed by multiple participants thus is available to everyone in the room and allows students to capture and save everything to their device so they can recall it at any time they need in the future. As tablets are becoming more popular among school pupils the benefits that DisplayNote offers makes your job as a teacher a lot easier and far more satisfying to see how your pupils are thriving.
It doesn’t matter what platform you choose to share your content in because DisplayNote is compatible with existing applications and is easily installed on all types of devices that use modern day operating systems such as Windows, iOS and Android. Not only that, but children with their own devices will feel more comfortable using their own device and happy that they are given the chance to use it in the classroom.
Using DisplayNote allows users to makes sense of all the content you choose to share as well as adding their own content through other sources such as additional images together with connotations, notes and post-its that serve as a reminder, explanation or additional research. And because all these changes can be edited and saved at any time when it comes around to exam time and students need to recover the content to revise, everything they need to know is available to them with a few taps of the screen.
Allowing modern students, a technology-minded era, the chance to use their devices at school inspires them to take an active interest in learning. If you think back to when you were at school and the amount of information you forgot after being talked at for an hour, you can appreciate how it important it is for kids to be engaged in the learning process if they are to achieve the best grades they are capable of.
DisplayNote also gives students the opportunity to interact and collaborate with each other in real-time, at anytime, anywhere. Although you do not want to encourage copying, there is nothing wrong with friends working on a project together – and with the latest collaborative technology, your pupils can both work from their own homes and still share ideas and content.
Technology is changing the way we do things in many aspects of our lives, from communicating, banking, researching and shopping. Why should learning be any different? With DisplayNote and handheld devices such as tablets, using technology to teach and learn will be as commonplace as booking a holiday online!
