The Airliner is great is a classroom that also utilizes the SMART Board... We have some classrooms that have chosen just an Airliner and a projector, and it is ok - but not as effective as you still end up with a 'personal device' being used as opposed to a collaborative device....
The combination of the SMART Board & Airliner(s) in a classroom really gives a teacher and students the most flexibility and modes of interactivity...
The schoolpad (interwrite) is ok - all of them are basically the same - they are just bluetooth mice (with a stylus for navigation). It is really about the software - and out of all of them, I still think SMART Notebook is the best. The others are comng along, but aren't up to par yet... by the time they get up to par, SMART will be on v10 of their software - and it should be just like the impact that Mac OSX had in way of change from the older MAC OS versions... I cant wait to see it!
Sounds like it should be OK, though the mechanism for pairing up the devices seems somewhat vague to somebody who has never used one!
Good idea about using an Airliner with projector, never considered that before. Could be a means to justify sneaking in a few projectors with a view to full Smartboards next year *droooool*
