Over the past few months I have read via Facebook and email stories of teachers who were quite adept with their interactive whiteboard being moved through layoffs to schools where they no longer had this equipment. Mainily for financial reasons, these techers will likely not have a replacement board at least for the next few years.
SmartBoards, Promethean Boards and many other kinds of Interactive Whiteboards are a good tool, but not every room has them and, personally, I don’t think they are worth the money. Today I’m going to share some cost effective alternatives to the IWB, but keep in mind that all of these alternatives will require a digital video projector .
