Personalised Learning Experiences

Microsoft’s AI technologies such as Co-Pilot, Speech Coach and Math Coach are making it possible to tailor educational content to the individual needs of each student. Interactive touchscreens, such as those offered by CommBox, are instrumental in delivering these personalized learning experiences. They allow educators to use AI-driven applications that can adapt in real-time to the learning pace and style of students, ensuring that every learner achieves their full potential.

In 2024, we’re seeing an increase in AI-powered tools that foster collaboration among students, both in-person and remotely. CommBox’s Interactive Classic S4 are at the heart of this trend, enabling students to work together on projects, share ideas, and solve problems collectively, irrespective of their physical location and skill level.
