Put it on the Big Board
Some teachers start off using interactive white boards without a clue as to what software works and what doesn’t on the big screen. Others use it as nothing more than a way to project slides or write on a white board. Panasonic shows the potential of this technology for the classroom by including RM Educational Software’s Easiteach software with three different classroom boards. Easiteach uses flash animation and inventive instructional ideas to help teach a variety of classes by showing and doing. For instance, Panasonic’s Panaboard UB-T780EW 77-inch front-projection interactive board with Easiteach for Windows and Mac sells for $2,295.
