About the Wireless Slates Market
A wireless slate is a device that educators can use to present content on interactive whiteboards (IWBs) or projector screens from anywhere in the classroom. These slates can be operated within a maximum range of 50 meters, allowing the user to operate these devices from anywhere in the classroom. They are primarily used as computer control peripherals similar to a mouse or keyboard. Wireless slates have a touch sensitive surface to control IWBs. The stylus pen attached to them helps teachers to annotate over computer applications and digital documents using digital ink.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global wireless slate market to grow at a CAGR of 6.63% during the period 2016-2020.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “An emerging trend which is already having a huge impact on the market is the rise in IT funding in the education sector. With the growing phenomenon of digitization, the education sector worldwide is set to observe dynamic changes in the way it shares information and knowledge. Hence, governments worldwide are focusing on this new aspect of education and are making efforts in implementing the changes. Institutions in the US spend a significant amount of their budgets on developing IT infrastructure. For instance, in 2015, the K-12 education segment spent $4.56 billion on IT, while the higher education segment spent around $6.38 billion.”
According to the report, a key driver for market growth is collaborative learning. Interactive technology in classrooms is largely limited to handheld devices such as tablets and smartphones. The hardware and software used in interactive classrooms enable students to execute activities and send information to the instructor’s system. Wireless slates complement other devices and support diverse pedagogical methodologies, which involve problem-based learning and flipped classrooms. "
Further, the report states that one challenge that could hamper market growth is the low digital literacy in emerging nations. "
