Collaborate and engage with students at just one click with ViewSonic’s myViewBoard

A single solution for presentation and collaboration, it addresses three stages of workflow for teachers including preparation, presentation, and participation

Dubai, May 20, 2022: ViewSonic’s  myViewBoard Ecosystem, a tool that enables teachers to create dynamic lesson plans, import engaging content and share lessons with students, is an ideal digital solution for schools to optimize student outcomes. 

A single solution for presentation and collaboration, it addresses three stages of workflow for teachers at just one easy click. In the first stage, teachers can prepare by organizing their ideas that includes adding text and graphics, dragging in videos and making notes. The stage comes with a presentation feature where teachers can share their ideas through the cloud, while annotating and running searches on the internet in real time. The third stage provides participation and interaction features where teachers are allowed to add pop quizzes, polls & more. They can also create small groups instantly and invite multi-user participation. 

myViewBoard works well with existing technology and seamlessly integrates into nearly any classroom. It is compatible with Windows, Android, and cloud environments. 

Some of the key highlights of myViewBoard include: 

1. Whiteboard

A visual teaching tool for preparation, presentation, and participation in the classroom and beyond, the Whiteboard gets out of teachers’ way and lets them teach their way while providing all the tools they need. Whiteboard’s Magic Box adds existing teaching materials, digital media, interactive elements, and pop quizzes either in the lesson plan or real-time in the classroom. myViewBoard’s gamification increases engagement where students learn through play. Teachers can easily gamify their lessons with built-in gaming features like 3D dice. Or lessons can include a pre-made activity from myViewBoard Originals either chosen ahead of time or added ad hoc.

Furthermore, it also improves lesson outcomes with more inclusive lessons. Whiteboard can engage auditory, visual, and tactile learners through the seamless delivery of a wide variety of media and hands-on interactivity while its smallboards feature enables teachers to involve more learners. Whiteboard can split into up to six Smallboard workspaces for students to independently create and share together. 

To make reading more accessible for all, Whiteboard has partnered with Microsoft to improve comprehension for any reader with the Immersive Reader. For those who struggle with reading, have additional accessibility requirements, or dyslexia, the Immersive Reader can support their reading development.

With Whiteboard, the natural approach of adaptable lessons gives teachers the ability to prepare and present engaging material that inspires students to participate.
