Interactive Whiteboards: The Future of Education, or Boondoggle?

For the last 2 years or so, we here at Teacher's Brunch have been making stuff teachers can use on their interactive whiteboards. SMARTboards, Promethean, our very own Vboards--just like Kleenex is to tissue, all interactive whiteboards basically work the same and run our games perfectly.

But we were talking today about the stories we've been hearing from some schools. Stories of grants being written, boards being purchased, boards being tucked away into storage rooms adjacent to media centers all across the country. We started wondering about interactive whiteboards, and how--IF!?--they are getting used the way we think they can be used.

We hope our customers are taking advantage of their technology. If not, they can drop us a line, and we're happy to help.
