Why Interactive Whiteboards Are Hot for Generation Edge Students

Monday, April 15, 2019

Dubbed as “Generation X,” “iGen,” and “Digital Natives,” Generation Edge or “Edgers” refers to the generation that immediately follows the Millennials. This population was born between 1996 and 2010, and they are known to be the cooler version of their generational siblings. Whereas Millennials want your attention, Edgers will let you know when they have decided they want to talk to you.

This makes them one of the most challenging audiences to teach and captivate. Edgers have marked proficiency in financial literacy, more sophisticated digital skills, and a whole lot of resiliency. Getting through to them requires more than just carefully curated content, they must be allowed to engage with any material that is presented to them, if they so choose.

Rabbit Office Automation’s Interactive Whiteboards (IWBs) are the perfect educational or training displays for Generation Edge students because they are engineered to provide maximum:

  • Flexibility.
    ROA’s IWBs come in stationary, position-adjustable, or portable models, which means that they are suited to a wide range of requirements. Whether you need to present in a large space such as an auditorium or a smaller area such as a classroom, students can rely on the flexibility that these devices offer. Portables, for instance, can be easily wheeled from room-to-room for optimal ease and convenience.
  • Connectivity.
    These IWBs are also prepped for connectivity, so Generation Edge students can easily sync and share information across multiple devices, including their laptops and mobile devices. The whiteboards are designed to allow multi-touch annotations, as well as video and real-time information sharing. With ROA’s IWBs, collaboration and brainstorming will be a breeze.
  • Versatility.
    If your students need to access documents they have already created, the brand’s Interactive Whiteboards can easily connect to laptops and other smart devices. Additionally, the equipment comes with a Windows 10-based controller that serves as a mini-PC, and allows downloads of important applications such as Office 365 and Skype. If a projector is required, the whiteboard is also easily set up for that.

Other extra benefits include: crisp 4k resolution, video conferencing capability, multi-touch and multi-user settings, handwriting recognition, and direct printing from board. Even better, the whole line offers various models that fit specific project needs and requirements. In terms of cost, you will find that the upfront fee will be very nicely compensated for by the quality of the device, in the long run. And IT support is available, so you are assured of finding the assistance that you need when you need it.
