Does anyone here use a mobile interactive whteboard and projector solution?
If so what are you using and how have staff found it?
We are looking at purchasing some portable units for our school and the only one I keep coming accross is this one from Promethean which from the size and weight doesn't look to be very portable at all.
I would reccommend Ebeam everytime. Its small and portable and easy to use, the software is good. All you need then is a projector. I have more info if you need it as Luidia have forwarded it to me.
I had one down on evalution / demonstration with a member of the Isis team for a large event I was putting on last year.
You're basically looking at two products rolled in to one. The first is a table which converts to a whiteboard and the other is an Epson interactive projector. Both together give a product which is fairly useful in some circumstances, however you could arguably reproduce the product yourself as a project using a cheaper projector + e-Beam etc.
It got good feedback from staff, and surprised me how much the pupils actually wanted to interact with it.
Ask a student to do something on an Interactive Whiteboard and a lot will be put off, but they seemed to feel much more at ease with the table.
We've ended up ordering two for two art classrooms - both to address the interface preference and the fact they needed a mobile solution as the rooms had no suitable wall for a traditional projection solution!
Thanks for that, it certainly looks impressive.
Is the Epson projector multi-touch?
You need to use a digital pen to interact with the projected image (as with e-beam), and as far as I am aware it is only single touch. Could be wrong though, I haven't specifically looked if I'm honest!
No, it's the standard Epson short throw interactive projector EB-450wi.
