Episodes 9 and 10 Survey - Interactive White Boards


Do you use an Interactive White Board in your class or your school? We would love to hear about the product you use and how it has changed teaching and learning in your class or school.

On the January 14th episode of the State of Tech podcast we will cover all of the different brands of Interactive White Board (IWB) systems, such as Smart, Promethean, Polyvision Eno, Mimio, Epson BrightLink, and more, to compare the features, pros, and cons of each system.

On the January 28th episode of the State of Tech podcast we will discuss the best educational uses for Interactive White Boards (IWB), with practical examples of how schools are using them to transform teaching and learning.

If you or your school uses any type of Interactive White Board system, please take a moment to answer this 8-question survey.

The data will be collected, summarized, and shared through the State of Tech podcast and website. All questions are optional, so do not feel obligated to answer everything, although your feedback through this survey is crucial to the value of this podcast and is greatly appreciated.

Additionally we are looking for teachers, techies, and other school leaders to serve as guests for these particular episodes. If you or someone you know is using Interactive White Boards in an exemplary way and would like to be on one of these episodes of the podcast, please let us know.
