An interactive whiteboard is an instructional tool that allows computer images to be displayed onto a board using a digital projector. The instructor can then manipulate the elements on the board by using his finger as a mouse, directly on the screen. Items can be dragged, clicked and copied and the lecturer can hand write notes, which can be transformed into text and saved.
This type of whiteboard is now commonplace in schools in South Africa. They were originally developed for use in business to demonstrate concepts and record meetings. However, they are an extremely flexible tool which can be used with both the youngest primary school children and university graduates.
Bring your classroom presentations to life without installing expensive interactive whiteboards. Epson’s interactive projectors come with many new features, such as dual pen control, PC-free connectivity and HDMI input, and provides a complete package for engaging learning.
This package includes the projector, wall-mount and two digital pens, and doesn’t need a separate screen. It can be mounted in four different ways to maximise learning opportunities: on your wall, on the ceiling or even to the underneath or side of a desk. Mounting to a desk allows groups to work together on documents or multimedia files.
