Mix match of IWB's in school + Promethean Software
One of the schools I visit has had some funding to put in a lot of Promethean boards in. They currently have a mix of Hitachi and Smartboards. The person in charge of the funding has put together a package which involves quite a lot of Promethean kit.
The school has been advised that all of their current boards (smart and Cambridge Hitachi) will work with the Promethean software?????? Is this true.
I have read about these Active Hubs that are liek a USB dongle that lets the staff laptop connect with the Actvie Vote and Active Expression but is laso supposed to let the Promethean hand writing software recognition work on none Promethean boards???
To be honest i don't know much about mix and match boards as most of the schools i visit are either Smart or Promethean.
Can some one in the know advise me on the above? Does the Prom software work on other boards?
