Support all Teaching and Learning types

The IB Teaching Style – Cycles of Inquiry

The CommBox Classic is the perfect partner for cycles of inquiry learning required by the IB program (PYP). An IB education aims to transform students and schools as they learn, through dynamic cycles of inquiry, action and reflection. Teachers enable and support students as they develop the approaches to learning they need – for both academic and personal success. Interactivity is required for each stage of inquiry and is seamlessly facilitated by the interactive screen. If your students are working in small groups within larger collaboration spaces, the Classic can be positioned to enable students to use the screen as they move around the room between stations. CommBox Connect allows multiple CommBox screens to broadcast content to each other.

Stylus Enabled Learning

Academic research by Mueller et al clearly demonstrates the importance of long hand note taking with paper and pen or digital paper and stylus to improve student’s factual and conceptual recall and understanding. This extends to the way teachers instruct in the classroom. Students have better retention and understanding of content when teacher write the notes on the board, underline, draw correlations, mind map and graph. It is critically important that an interactive touchscreen is at the front of the classroom to enable teachers to make notes on Powerpoint, in Class OneNote, in digital textbooks, alongside Youtube videos and more. Teachers that take the time to ask students to come up to the board to annotate on the screen will find that their students are more engaged and have better learning outcomes.

Visible Thinking

All schools want their students to think creatively, critically and deeply. Visible Thinking is a project of Harvard University that found that students can be taught thinking habits or routines that enable them to effectively observe, analyse, question and reflect on their thinking. These routines can be used alone or in a group. Collaborative thinking can be applied to any context. Interactive Touchscreens at the front of the classroom enable visible thinking as it allows the teacher and the student to document their thinking using tools like the shared Whiteboard, Miro or other mind mapping applications. When learners speak, write, or draw their ideas, they deepen their cognition. This thinking can then be shared and saved into the MS Class Notebook or into Google Classroom. It can be referred to or expanded on as the topic progresses. The Microsoft Whiteboard now has thinking templates already built-in, for example Know, Wonder, Learn (KWL).

Blended or Hybrid Learning

Blended learning combines teaching and learning methods from both face-to-face, mobile and online learning and it includes elements of both synchronous and asynchronous online learning options, such that some students will be learning virtually or remotely. The CommBox Classic is the main learning device for students who are in the classroom. Via Teams or Zoom students who are learning from home can connect remotely. If the Classic has a camera attached then the students at home can see the students in the classroom. The teacher can also be connected via their laptop and use the gallery view to see all the students at home on their laptop.

Flipped Learning

A flipped classroom is when the students engage with interactive content focusing on key concepts prior to class allowing face-to-face time for collaborative activities that clarify concepts and contextualise knowledge through application, analysis, planning and problem solving. A Classic interactive touchscreen supports this learning style by providing the tools needed to explore, mind-map, collaborate at the front of the classroom when students explore the findings from their homework preparation.

In-room front of class collaboration

A Classic interactive touchscreen is a fantastic main learning device for front of the classroom teacher or student led learning or collaboration. Teachers have the option of plug and play with their laptop or desktop to share learning content on their device. The built-in browser allows teacher to display content from the Internet. Built-in screen share means students can take over the device and present their learnings or their final work.

Use teaching applications you already know and love

We make teaching easy by allowing teacher and schools to teach with the applications they already know and love. The last thing a teacher needs is to have to learn a proprietary lesson delivery software that comes with just one type of touchscreen brand. Instead, schools and teachers are already investing heavily into the best of breed software offered by Google Education and Microsoft Education. Alternatively your school may have chosen Canvas or Blackboard. Every options works with a CommBox Classic.

Student Led Learning

In effective student-led learning, learners are strongly motivated to be working on topics that interest them, defining their own questions and then working collaboratively to investigate and synthesis the findings.

Students love the option to showcase their work and present their findings to their classmates.
