Collaboration in Action
Encourage Classroom Interaction by Connecting and Sharing Content from Multiple Devices
A potential side effect of students having individual devices in the classroom is that they may unintentionally silo themselves in the learning process. The best way to encourage collaboration is to have students in a connected environment. Clear Touch Collage™ is our powerful solution for better classroom interaction.
Clear Touch Collage™ is a powerful, yet easy-to-use, application that lets you cast up to 4 devices to your Clear Touch® panel (even allowing you to cast Chromebooks). It enables you to encourage interaction and involvement, even in a classroom setting where each student has his or her own device. Helpful permission controls give you the ability to manage who is able to connect, ensuring you have the necessary control for keeping everything organized and running smoothly.
Collage is especially useful for show-and-tell, student presentations, and cooperative teaching. For example, in a lab setting one teacher could moderate the presentation from his or her laptop, while another teacher or teacher’s assistant could demonstrate an experiment on a camera-enabled device. A teacher could even connect multiple devices in the classroom and then move easily from device to device without having to constantly disconnect and reconnect.
The true genius of Collage is that it is a highly compatible solution that works seamlessly with nearly all of today’s most popular devices, including iPads, Chromebooks, Macs, PCs, and Android devices. On top of that, connecting to Collage is remarkably easy to do. Simply open Collage on your Clear Touch® panel, enter the displayed access code, and you’re ready to go!
