I’ll save you the time clicking on the link. Want to connect your iPad to SMARTboard? You can’t.
The only way to run SMARTnotebook on your iPad is to remote desktop a computer running SMARTnotebook. :P
Web whiteboard app that turns anything into a whiteboard that you can share and collaborate. No install needed!
There is not a ton options for your drawing tools on Aww App, but there are enough that you can certainly illustrate your point(s). I actually like that there is a limited selection of drawing tools because it will force students to focus on illustrating and diagramming their points rather than worry about making them aesthetically pleasing.

The case for Interactive Whiteboards (SMARTboards)
At DSHA we’re down to just a handful of classrooms that only have large LCD/CRT monitors (30-34”) as their visual aid. 3 rooms have projectors/screens. 25 classrooms have SMARTboard interactive whiteboards.
One of our faculty members who recently received a SMARTboard in her classroom in 2010-11 had a thoughtful questionnaire on why our school is investing in SMARTboards (IWB/Interactive White Board) technology. In our case, 8 years ago our Math department requested them as a pilot, and now we have at least 1 board in every discipline: Science, Math, World Languages, English, Social Studies, Theology, and Fine Arts (excluding PhyEd and Business which both have a projector/screen).
Here’s just a few resources about IWBs:
- Whitepapers produced by SMART Research
- Completed and Upcoming research from SMART
- Great Collinktion
- IWB research paper
This year (2011-12) I’m excited that our pilot department (Social Studies 2010-11) helped make the case for formative assessment/immediate feedback with students and response systems (clickers). We’ll have 32-unit classroom sets for these departments this fall:
- World Languages
- Social Studies
Thanks for asking!
Update: I’m the Director of Technology at my school, so if you have questions about our process, are looking for resources, looking for justifications/evidence, or just general how-to help please connect with me! I’m happy to help you!

Here are The Innovative Educator’s list of No No’s. The list includes how to solve these problems and the advantages to fixing:

- Try not to shadow the board
- No crooked images
- Don’t turn the lights off
- Don’t point with your finger
- Don’t waste time setting a projector up
- Don’t assume your audience can see what you do
- Don’t be a sage on the stage
- Don’t use your projector as blackboard replacement
This link is to a clip from Saturday Night Live back from the ’08 election when all the news networks were getting interactive boards. SNL is satirizing how the news rooms were using their new toys and basically showing everyone how not to use a SMARTBoard. It doesn’t matter how cool the technology is, it’s all about teacher.
Thanks Mr Loucks!
