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 (:
teachers, esp physics teachers will love this. as the demonstrator said towards the end, this combintation of technology allows “a natural and familiar style of interaction”. how about getting your students to do some virtual experiment on this?
