We've added a small platform in front of some boards so the short ones
can step up to use it and the tall ones can still stand at a comfortable
distance. But, there are height adjustable wall mounts (looks like most
have about 20" of travel) for the boards available. But, you'd want a
projector mounted on the board and not the ceiling to avoid constant
adjustment and recalibration.

Subject: Re: Smartboards in Kindergarten or Primary Grades
I am a kindergarten teacher at Milton Elementary School. I am one of 4
teachers who have smartboards mounted on the wall in my classroom with
projector hanging from the ceiling. The smartboard is placed low on the
wall so most kindergarten students can reach most of the board. My
is on the floor infront of it. My students use the smartboard
appropriately but I have taught the routine of how to use correctly and
reinforce the safety often. My biggest concern is a substitute teacher
using an incorrect marker on the surface. I have posted a sign on it
when I am not in the classroom.
Let me know if you need more information or would like to visit when we
are using it.
