As digital becomes the norm, communications in business and learning institutions should be integrated with technology to facilitate and improve the flow of information. Innovations, like Parrot’s Multi Touch Interactive Whiteboard, now available through partnership with Nashua, are transforming the modern office and classroom by bringing about collaboration.
The Multi Touch Interactive Whiteboard can transform business meetings and presentations – it’s designed to be versatile and dynamic to boost productive workflows.
A tech evolution
There’s no doubt traditional whiteboards limit collaboration. Existing information has to be removed to alter content or create new content. Interactive digital whiteboards allow businesses to save, add and disseminate information more efficiently.
The Multi Touch Interactive Whiteboard gives users the power to directly interact with information. Employees, clients, teachers and students can join conversations remotely, offer input, then resume the activity at hand, without leaving the desk or office.
This new technology not only improves communication but also facilitates more effective and productive meetings. Information is easily analysed, shared and modified. It also increases data security as information is stored – unlike traditional whiteboards where information is lost when the board is wiped.
The presentation of the future
Tools like digital whiteboards can reduce meeting and teaching time and allow for better engagement in the classroom and boardroom. The whiteboard allows simultaneous, real-time interaction amongst individuals in different locations – it’s immediate and direct.
Instead of sitting through a one-way presentation scribbled on a whiteboard or clicking through a presentation, a digital whiteboard enables participants to engage with what’s being discussed – with a greater chance of retaining information and reaching mutual understanding.
Files can be easily shared, accessed, edited, and saved for future use. Changes can be made in real-time to the topic at hand as feedback is received. Digital whiteboards facilitate the use of rich media, like videos, visuals and presentations. The live webinar allows meetings to happen via the web, also saving time and travelling costs.
One of the key benefits of the Multi Touch Interactive Whiteboard is its compatibility with any windows PC, laptop or tablet or MacBook (except the iPad) via plug and play. This means seamless integration, no matter the device – a common concern for educators and businesses looking to adopt new hardware and software.
