turning a normal whiteboard interactive – eBeam Engage

the first time i touched an eBeam device was 9 yrs ago, dangling cables, troublesome connections and calibration, in short there’s too many pieces of equipment to handle and by the time 1/4 of a 35-mins lesson’s gone. this morning, saw this piece of video (below) via Tucksoon, and was amazed how eBeam has continued to evolve and improve itself. one sleek device attached to the side of the board, if only i can get to play with it (:

oh btw, “Engage” reminds me of Star Trek (:

IWB and Chinese characters recognition

alas, this is the 2nd last installament of my (feels like neverending) series of examinable assignments this semester.
it’s entitled 探索交互白板于汉字教学的应用, and the english title would read “Exploring the Use of Interactive Whiteboard for Teaching and Learning of Chinese Characters
and to make this assignment INTERESTING, i have also put together a video demonstration on how the IWB lessons can be carried out. the voice/volume of the recording’s not too good coz my TC1100’s mic is really that lousy. choose among [Online viewing of streamed video] or [download to desktop for offline viewing, abt 20MB]

one last one to go … and there’s only less than 4 days to go … add oil add oil …
