Education branche

Our internationally oriented economy needs graduates with a wealth of knowledge, who are creative and able to work on projects with others. To get the best results from your students, it is essential that your facilities support your teaching methods. These methods have been growing in popularity for several years:

Teacher as coach, pupil in the lead

Project-based learning (scrum & Agile working)

Attention for soft skills

This has created a need for multifunctional areas, where analogue and digital facilities reinforce each other.

Scrumming at schools

Social learning, learning by working together. Particularly in subjects like Research&Design and Information Technology, project-based learning plays an important role. Groups are given a problem and work within a project towards a result. By using scrum techniques, the project becomes more transparent, for each other and for the teacher, who can then coach. A large whiteboard surface not only makes the project visual, it also stimulates creativity through brainstorming. Is this a familiar situation in your school?

Dynamic lessons

In most schools, the more classic subjects like languages and maths are best taught in a classroom setting. Teachers then prefer to write down explanations on a whiteboard or blackboard. This enables pupils to follow the logic and the steps more easily at the teacher’s writing pace. However, there is often a certain need for different dynamics than 15 years ago, for example. The word ‘variety’ is often heard. This might be achieved through the combination of analogue writing and the use of digital resources, for example. A pupil has a question and it is then possible to go directly online to look up an example. Writing and projecting on the same whiteboard is an ideal solution in this situation.

Another way to make a lesson more dynamic is to place whiteboards on different sides of a classroom. Or have a whiteboard over 2 sides of a classroom. Mobile whiteboards can also offer added value. On a mobile whiteboard, pupils can work in different settings, while the teacher works on a fixed whiteboard on the wall.
