I'll double check the company name of our providers for you and e-mail the contact details. If you've not got a copy of the TES article give me a yell over the next day or so (before the wife bins them) and I'll send a copy through to you.

I found out last week that my bid was successful and that I am going to get an Interactive Whiteboard in my classroom. Not only that, they were so impressed by the bid that they even offered to buy one for the Geography department as well!
Thanks to everyone who offered advice. How chuffed am I!! Positively drooling in anticipation...

Have been on INSET today and the Humanities team were informed that in our brand new state of the art Media Arts school as of 2003 each humanities room, on each of the three floors, will have five computers and one teacher will have what has been described as a Media Rich room.
Apparently this room will have an interactive whiteboard, fifteen computers and enough sockets to plug in 15 laptops, which will be available to book for a lesson.
The team were subdued whilst I smiled inwardly - especially as the HOF then said "Looks like Nicky and I will be in two of the three Media Rich rooms!"

A far smaller, but still significant achievement, I saw my first digital projector at school today. Not for me, but it's hopefully the start that can then be used to show the potential.

We must have the country's leading proponents of the use of ICT in History contributing to this discussion board and we could plan for something that loads of History teachers would want to attend.
Besides, if we can't meet up on the First World War battlefields we could do so at Weatherhead instead
Sound your Head out on Monday Nicky!

Onward into the 1990s! With that and a new overhead projector, not to mention a video and tv, things are looking up!

What exactly is an interactive whiteboard and what can it do?
You will have to excuse the ignorance of us colonials!

Just so everyone knows where I stand on the technology front, I have a PC with digital projector in my classroom installed over the summer. I have also just been alloted one of the 5 laptops given to the school.
I am presently sitting at my desk in my classroom, and there is a long black object (about two feet long) attached by four suckers to my whiteboard. It is attached by a cable to my PC using the same port as the monitor or digital projector would use. I had no idea it was coming and when I came in ten minutes ago I had no idea what the hell it was! In addition, there are four board pens in hard plastic sleeves with microchips inside them and a thing that looks a bit like one of those webcams that stand on top of your PC Monitor on my desk!
The mystery is very deep.
Fortunately it has a website address on the side, and so I have looked it up.
The device is manufactured by a company called Mimio - who I have never heard of.
The device can be seen (along with the other bits!) at this web address.
The strange thing on Stephen's whiteboard!
I believe it is a device that is a kind of cross between an interactive whiteboard and an ordinary whiteboard. You use the special pens and the digital rubber (the thing that looks like a webcam!) to write on the board and the two foot long black thing stuck to the board records your scrawling and turns it into a digial file on your PC.
I had no idea this was going to appear, and there is no note on my desk to say what it is. I have some ideas on what to do with it, but perhaps others can contribute after looking at the link!
To finish though I must say that it is nice to be given ICT gifts when you don't even ask for them!!!!
