Epson interactive whiteboard

There is now a new Epson interactive whiteboard in my room and it caused quite a sensation on Monday. Why not? New technology, new look and it really is dressed to impress. The board area is bigger and that is a real advantage for students and staff when they are teaching. The sound and image are HD quality and it shows. It makes such a difference in a classroom like mine which is dark in winter and acoustically bonkers. There are fewer wires and the whole installation is tidy and neat. The best bit is the projector is closer to the board and so you don’t get blinded by the light as you teach. It runs very quickly from whiteboard to computer display and so you can interchange the mode of approach really quickly which is important in a lesson…. just sit there and watch my computer load, please. My students were very excited and pleased because it was so much better for them. Other staff who used the room were excited and one in particular, who has good art and mobile phone skills had a head full of ideas as soon as we got it going and he could see how easy it was. It has a USB connection to load images from a flash drive. This is good for me. I often use images and then will be able to write over the top of them myself. You can save screens from the board to the drive or computer. You can print if you want to . The whiteboard can work without the computer if you need that. There are lots of options and they are all easy. The video shows you how easy and there are other videos on YouTube to look at to show you the functions. I can still use the things from my other IWB and that is good. My next step is to connect the Apple TV and see how that goes. I stopped using it because the screen was too small on the other projector . This one ought to be better and the Apple TV ought to be able to benefit from the sound and visual capabilities of this projector. I have used it for one day and it has created a real chance to grow again. New technology can do that, especially if it fits our needs as teachers.
