Follow-up on Interactive Whiteboards
by Tim Van Heule

There have been some great comments regarding an earlier post on interactive whiteboards in the classroom – specifically Promethean Activboards and SMART Boards. I must apologize to the Hitachi Starboard community for not including them in the original post, but as I have no real personal experience with the Starboard, I can’t really write about it.

So why the follow-up? Mostly because of the following comment…

Hi! I am amit. Could you please give your expert opinion on the following article:

Purchasing an Interactive Whiteboard

Overall, I thought the article was well written. It covered all of the important aspects to consider when purchasing an interactive whiteboard for the classroom or in regards to a larger scale project.

I think one of the most important things to consider though is the level of support that comes with the purchase. Who is going to troubleshoot the issues? Who is going to repair broken or damaged components? Who is going to replace missing pieces?

The level of support that comes with the purchase is key, especially with larger scale projects.

Be sure to discuss this with the sales people before finalizing the purchase…
