A door closes as one opens

I talked about the Promethean Activboards in the past and how much I like the way they engage children in the classroom.  Well it seems Promethean isn't alone in the journey to alter the classroom.  Well June brings the end to most public school terms and this is when schools start to figure out budgets and the purchases of new equipment.  This is where the world of ICT plays a huge part.  Not only is there a great space for improvement when it comes to education technology, but everyone involved can actually feel good about what they are doing.  SMART Technologies is the producer of interactive whiteboards much like the ones brought to schools by Promethean.  Since competition breeds innovation I'm happy to report on this brand and their efforts.

Here is there classroom remote Senteo, that allows students to respond and vote from their seats and see the results.

Here is the SMARTboard in action
