Bob tries out his $50 Interactive Whiteboard.

I’ve been buying up parts galore for my $50 Interactive Whiteboard grant. Got 5 Wiimotes and am working on 2 pens for each.  (I’ve bought up 2 Radio Shacks worth of infrared LEDs!) So far Bob and Ivan have theirs are are working on ways to use them.

Here are some photos of Bob taking his for a test drive.  It definitely takes some getting used to.  It’s easy to block the camera or change the angle of the pen, which can affect where the infrared light beam shines and, consequently, where the computer reads your mouseclick.

But, it’s lots of fun.  Bob left with a big grin and is eager to bring this technology to the classroom.  Special thanks again to Peter, ESL Tech Support, for helping to get everything up and running smoothly.  Look for more early results soon.
