The Inclusive Interactive Plasma Screen - Comparisons

Tameside LEA conducted research into the advantages and disadvantages of interactive whiteboards and plasma screens. They discovered that:

Reported disadvantages of interactive whiteboards

  • Pupils experienced problems with their shadow.
  • Pupils did not always understand the importance of not staring at the projector beam and there were health and safety concerns.
  • The fixed position at the height considered appropriate for pupil use was inappropriate when the board was used for whole class teaching.
  • A portable interactive whiteboard was being asked for so that it could be used to support learning in different zones.
  • The image on the whiteboard is grainy and presents a certain amount of glare.

Positive outcomes of the plasma screen

  • The Plasma can be used effectively for a number of activities involving different numbers of participants.
  • Very popular with all pupils using it during 'free choice'.
  • Motivated pupils during group work
  • Creates no shadows
  • Presents no health and safety concerns in respect of projectors.
  • Can be height adjusted to accommodate any situation or user.
  • Can be moved around the classroom setting so it can be used in different zones.
  • Has a clear image with no glare.
