    Interactive Whiteboard

    Hi All,
    We are doing homeschooling for our son who is in first grade, age 6. We have one full room(12x10) as class room. Please suggest some good interactive white board, Tablet and Document camera. We will appreciate for your help.
    Thanks

    Look at the Smart Overlays screens or a clever touch screen.

    A whole IWB for one child sounds like overkill - any touch-screen tablet should do, or a touch-screen all-in-one PC. I have a 22" all-in-one Advent PC myself, similar to the HP and Sony devices. You could use the tablet to control a projected screen via VNC or similar - the iPad is still probably the best tablet computer around. I don't really think you'll need a document camera unless your son has some kind of visual impairment and needs things blown up so he can see them better.

    That Interactive Multimedia Tablet looks like it's designed to be used along with something else - a projector, at least, or maybe a full IWB. Your best bet, if you're on a limited budget, is probably going to be to stick with just a tablet - you can't go too far wrong with an iPad, although you might prefer an equivilent Android device. If you can give a little more background to your situation we might be able to help more - are all learning materials being provided by yourself, or are you going to be accessing sme particular websites (in which case, Flash support might be a good idea)?

    Thanks. I prefer to use the lessons like given in SmartBoard websites. They are very interactive.

    Do you mean you prefer to use SMART's software - you already have a bunch of resources you have in mind to buy in SMARTBoard-format files? If so, you're best off buying a SMARTBoard, it comes with the software. If not, buy a tablet and make sure the content you want to use will work on it - the iPad might not be best for this as it doesn't run Flash, you might be better off with something Windows 7 (or, indeed, Windows 8) based like the RM Slate. You could connect that up to a large external monitor if you're really keen to have a large-screen display.
