Smartboards are becoming more and more a norm in classrooms, because they are more efficient and clean. The one problem is they are expensive and range from $2000 to $10,000 a year plus fees. This is an incredible expense for schools, which is why Boardshare was created.
This innovative product can turn any flat surface into an interactive smart board. It’s very easy to setup and use. All you need to have is a projector and the Boardshare equipment. You hook up the Boardshare camera to a computer and download the software. Then point it at the surface you want to use. Once you’re ready to go, you can interact with anything. Play a YouTube video, edit a PDF — the uses are limitless. You can even take an unlimited amount of whiteboard notes which can be saved for later or shared with parents, students, and other teachers. All of this can also be done on a TV screen or a monitor without the need for a projector. Other great features include: the ability to create and toggle between hundreds of notes, documents, and presentations, an array of tools including virtual pens, erasers, highlighters, and colors, the choice to move objects and/or re-size them rather than erasing and re-creating, and access to files from your computer or the web.
This works especially well with students who thrive with a visual learning environment. The high quality of the images and projection keep students engaged in the learning materials.
