IWB suitable for use in nursery
Can anyone recommend a board suitable for use in nursery? It needs to be low so the wee ones can reach the board (they also have a limited reach so it needs to be fairly small). Also the projector needs to be out of the way so it doesn't create a hazard to adults. Perhaps we need some sort of interactive TV screen rather than a board and projector?

Smart do a tiny version of their smartboards, but I've found recently that touch screen PC's are the way to go in reception classes. They rarely used smartboards anyway, so a couple of my schools have bought a few acer Z5610 23" touch screen AIO's. They're great, and have withstood the grubby mits so far!

We have a 72" Smartboard in our nursery, its about 10" off the floor, Projector is ceiling mounted high enough so that staff dont bang their head. Gets used mostly for wet play/dvd times but is good with paint packages etc.

Missus has a smartboard in her nursery with the projector attached to it - one of those it all moves up and down together, I suspect if I was teaching the class I'd be smacking my head on the projector and boom arm all the time though......

We have Promethean Height Adjustable boards. Projector moves up and down with the board and goes pretty low - also we give them ActivWands to be able to have better reach on the boards. See links below:

We bought one of these: SMART Board 6051i interactive display
Can be mounted literally as low to the ground as you can get, and has been well received, but they aren't cheap.

personally if you can afford it i would go plasma as the image is so much brighter. Plus no chance of eye damage on small children staring into projector plus no bulb replacement costs. Inclusive Technology
