It should provide smooth and precise touch interactions, supporting multi-touch gestures effectively. The CommBox Classic S4 supports 40 points of touch.
Responsiveness: The screen's response time is crucial for a good user experience. It should have low latency, minimizing delays between touch inputs and on-screen actions. A fast and responsive interactive screen ensures a seamless and natural interaction. The CommBox Classic S4 has under 1.5 sec response time.
Image Quality: The display's image quality plays a significant role in the overall experience. A good interactive screen should have a high-resolution display, vibrant colors, and good contrast ratio to ensure clear and sharp visuals. This is particularly important for detailed content and applications that require accurate color representation. The CommBox Classic S4 has a high quality 4K screen.
Durability and Reliability: Interactive screens are often used in high-traffic areas, such as classrooms, public spaces, or corporate environments. It is important for the screen to be durable and capable of withstanding frequent use, potential impacts, and environmental factors.

User-Friendly Interface: An intuitive and user-friendly interface enhances the usability of the interactive screen. The screen should have clear menus, icons, and navigation options that are easy to understand and operate. Intuitive gestures and interactive elements contribute to a more engaging and efficient user experience. The CommBox Classic S4 comes with the most intuitive user interface on the market.
Connectivity Options: The interactive screen should offer various connectivity options, such as HDMI, USB, and wireless connectivity, to accommodate different devices and facilitate content sharing and collaboration. The CommBox Classic S4 has 3 x HDMI ports, USB-C for charging and more.

Here are 6 reasons why CommBox has the best interactive touchscreens for schools.
Lessons are more interactive and immersive using dynamic content presented on an interactive touchscreen. Interactive touchscreens encourage active participation from students. They can directly interact with the content by touching, dragging, and manipulating objects on the screen. This active involvement keeps students more engaged and helps them retain information better compared to passive learning methods.
Interactive screens can grab the attention of students with crystal clear learning (no more blurry projectors or glare from the sun). With 4K and anti-glare interactive screen, students can see the screen clearly with minimal effort. Teachers can zoom in and out of content to make it clear or use the spotlight feature to draw student attention towards a key point. Interactive touchscreens provide a dynamic and visually appealing learning experience. Teachers can use multimedia resources, interactive simulations, educational games, and videos to deliver content in an engaging and interactive manner. The visual and interactive nature of the content captures students' attention, making the learning process more enjoyable and stimulating.

Supports All Teaching and Learning types
For Teachers, Interactive touchscreens offer flexibility in content delivery, allowing teachers to personalize and adapt the learning experience to meet the needs of individual students. They can customize lessons, provide interactive quizzes, and offer differentiated instruction based on students' abilities and learning styles. This personalized approach enhances engagement by catering to each student's specific needs.
Students, Interactive touchscreens can also be given the option to lead collaboration sessions, present their findings, and record results from class discussions. Interactive touchscreens can incorporate gamification elements, such as leaderboards, badges, and rewards, to create a more engaging learning environment. By introducing game-like elements, students are motivated to actively participate, compete, and achieve goals, resulting in increased engagement and enjoyment. For example, consider the CommBox Scoreboard or Rewards app. Interactive touchscreens also allow students to engage with the content using touch, which adds a tactile and kinesthetic element to their learning experience. This multi-sensory approach enhances engagement by catering to different learning styles and making the learning process more interactive and hands-on.
