More Board Real Estate On Its Way

We have started the installation process for the second wave of ACTIVboards here at my school. This time, we've also had two of the larger model boards installed, the 78" version while the rest of the school is sporting the 60" model. The first one of these went into one of our MYLU classrooms and the extra size is immediately evident to an experienced user like myself. I used one of these last year at the EChO conference and loved the extra "real estate". With the older kids, it means they will view the board's display a lot better without leaving their seats and they are tall enough for the whole IWB surface to be in play. A larger one has also been installed in the Resource Centre and could be a great focal point for whole staff training.

However, when playing with a new blog search tool tonight, I found that our big boards are being upstaged by Promethean's newest addition to its range, a 95" monster. And kids will get help to make use of the large size of this supersized IWB.
The Activboard can also be used with Promethean's new 21-inch
Activwand, which permits early learners and special needs students to more
easily select and interact with objects on the board that may have been out
of reach before.
