    SmartBoard is one manufacturer of interactive whiteboards-others include Promethean and Mimio. SmartBoards and Prometheans are more interactive than Mimio-but much more expense. They include a special whiteboard that is layered to be a touch screen. Mimio is a device that attaches to any existing whiteboard and uses wireless technology and a special stylus that they call a mouse (don't confuse with regular computer mouse).

    You and the children can

    write on images projected on the interactive whiteboard-good for creating word banks, circling information, completing fill in the blanks, etc
    use interactive online activities-I often model websites that I allow the children to use on the classroom computers-you can click, drag, write, etc
    view videos-stopping to highlight information if desired-yes you can mark right on the images on the video
    record markings on such images and move on
    the recording feature on interactive whiteboards allows you to save student work using the whiteboard for assessmentBasically anything you can do on a desktop or laptop computer can be done on the whiteboard. Can you tell that I love my SmartBoard? It's so useful and after 2 years I'm still learning new ways to use it.
