    Interactive Writing Pads

    Our school is looking to either purchase the SMART Airliner or the Promethean ActiveSlate. Does anyone have any opinions on the two or is there something else out there that would be better?

    The salesman was all for SMART but we know he would earn from it if we were pushed. Didn't really get to see the ActiveSlate and what it could do, but we currently have 5 Promethean boards and NO SMARTboards. He did tell us that Promethean software was sold only as SINGLE licenses, but to get the SMART software we would have to purchase at least 1 SMARTboard.

    Again any opinions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Have to say have a search as this has come up a few times and been discussed quite well. Generally it comes down what environment it is going to be in and on which you started/have more experience with. Normally comes down to a 50/50 split I think.

    Note 1 : Activslate is for use with Activboard 50, 64 & 78. Supplied with 1 Activpen, cables, Quick Start Guide. It is not supplied with Activ software but if you have the board then it does not matter as it will use the software from the board. License is not an issue -

    they also do a Activtablet A6 USB tablet

    Note 1 : Each Activtablet is supplied with 1 pen
    Note 2 : No Activ software supplied - for preparation only

    You do not need to purchase a smartboard as they do the airliner with and without smart software!!

    We have a load of GTCO Calcomp SchoolPads - we have these in preference to IWBs due to cost. The pads are bluetooth linked and the software is the same as that which comes with the GTCO Calcomp SchoolBoards (which we also use).

    It's good, sturdy, kit that we haven't had any problems with
