Yep.. OK, Eric, Marc and all, point taken.. I excluded saying Interactive Whiteboards.. Yes, send me all experiences from ALL boards..
I only said it that way because the DOE owns Smartboards and I am doing training for DOE staff on how they might be used in schools. The intent is to get DOE staff to learn how to use what we have. No offense to other board products and was not an endorsement. I asked specifically because the Smartboard software is fairly unique.
Thanks for catching that.. Send stories about interactive whiteboards in general.

Subject: Re: Need a couple of stories concerning Smartboards
I am concerned that this message specifies one particular product. There are several types of Interactive White Boards being used in VT Schools, and I think as a community we should avoid vendor- or product-specific examples of integration. It is the technology, not the brand, that makes the difference!
I will be sending some examples of how Mimio has changed instruction in some of our classrooms.
