Clip to ScrapBook #3

Thanks for the great response. I use my SmartBoard quite a bit as well, however, just playing with the idea of using different technology to replace it. I guess my thought is I don't want to be tied to a SmartBoard and the 4:3 scale of it. So much content, including our computers, are widescreen scaling, and I'd like to on some things make the image on the board more at 8 feet wide by 4.5 feet tall rather than just 5ft.x4ft. I have 15 Chromebooks in my classroom, and with a Chromecast, kids can interact by showing their work on the board. My goal is to have them do this, but I'd also like something such as an eBeam Edge, where I can use regular markers, but have the content saved and control my computer with it. Mersive also makes some great software for BYOD and schools. Thanks for the input!
