Easy for teachers and students to use, the 4K ultra high-definition touch-screen display was built for K–12 learning environments.

In the rapidly evolving landscape of educational technology, finding tools that seamlessly integrate into the classroom environment while enhancing the learning experience is vital. That’s where the LG CreateBoard’s 4K ultra high-definition touch-screen display comes in.

The LG CreateBoard offers a compelling solution for K–12 classrooms seeking to integrate cutting-edge audiovisual technology. From its intuitive interface to its robust collaboration features, it empowers educators to create dynamic and engaging learning environments.

Designed with K–12 learning settings in mind, this interactive panel offers a host of features aimed at fostering collaboration, ease of use and engagement. With its versatility and comprehensive connectivity options, this device is poised to revolutionize the modern classroom experience.

The CreateBoard Promotes Class Teamwork and Collaboration

Collaboration is key in the modern classroom, and the LG CreateBoard excels in facilitating teamwork and engagement. I have used it in my work as a middle school career technical education teacher and have also witnessed its ability to captivate students in grades two through six in our school’s afterschool program.

With up to 32 touchpoints in Android mode and 40 touchpoints in Windows mode, the display accommodates interactive learning experiences extremely well. The CreateBoard encourages active participation from K–12 students for group projects and collaborative problem-solving activities.

I first had the chance to put the CreateBoard to the test during my 3D modeling class. I transformed the board into a hub for teamwork with the split-screen feature.

Dividing the panel into four sections, I invited my students to explore its collaborative potential. As both a teacher and a participant, I observed how the CreateBoard easily facilitated group work; each team claimed its space, sketching and brainstorming with enthusiasm. It wasn’t just a lesson, it was a practical demonstration of the CreateBoard’s ability to inspire collaboration and elevate classroom dynamics.

As the students wrapped up their sketches, I witnessed firsthand the convenience and efficiency of the CreateBoard’s sharing functionality.

Some teams expressed a desire to retain their creations for future reference. With a simple tap of the “share” button, the screen displayed a QR code that served as a virtual gateway to their digital artwork. Without missing a beat, my students pulled out their smartphones and scanned the QR code. Their sketches were instantly and securely saved to the cloud, ready to be accessed whenever needed. It was a flawless transition from classroom collaboration to digital preservation, showcasing the CreateBoard’s user-friendly capabilities and practical utility.

The Display Is Easy to Operate, Even with Multiple Devices Connected

One of the standout features of the LG CreateBoard is its user-friendly design. The interface feels intuitive and familiar, particularly for users accustomed to tablets and smartphones. Navigation is a breeze thanks to large, app-style buttons with clear labels.

Whether managing content or accessing apps, everything is conveniently located within a few taps.

Beyond its role as a teaching tool, the CreateBoard serves as a practical multimedia hub, accommodating various devices simultaneously. Users can connect laptops, gaming consoles or external displays, and switching between devices is effortless. The intuitive interface and seamless integration into the classroom ecosystem allow easy switching between connected devices.

While testing the interactive display, I found myself effortlessly juggling five connected devices, each serving a unique purpose in enhancing the learning experience. From gaming consoles such as the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation to multiple Windows laptops (and even an LCD connected via Video Graphics Array) the CreateBoard transformed into a convenient multimedia hub.

This device-switching capability not only streamlines classroom activities, it empowers educators to incorporate diverse content sources, ensuring a dynamic and engaging learning environment.

The CreateBoard’s Features Span Grade Levels and Subject Areas

The CreateBoard bridges the gap between different age groups and subject areas within the educational landscape.

I found that students at all grade levels shared a fascination with the board’s interactive capabilities, particularly a drawing app called Palette. Unlike standard drawing apps on interactive displays, Palette offers a unique feature that allows users to blend two colors virtually, mimicking a real paint palette. With a range of brush tools available, students are empowered to unleash their creativity in vibrant hues.

The CreateBoard’s utility extends beyond the arts and into the realm of mathematics. Math teachers will appreciate its comprehensive suite of tools, including four types of rulers and a user-friendly protractor feature that simplifies angle drawing.

The CreateBoard ensures that teachers across disciplines have access to powerful tools to enhance learning experiences. Its compatibility with Windows applications expands its functionality, allowing educators to leverage familiar tools like Office 365 and Google Workspace for Education.
