There aren’t too many educational gadgets that capture my attention, but the Mimio Interactive is definitely a head turner. In short, you attach the device to a almost any flat surface in the classroom (think white or chalk board), load some software on your computer and whamo, you’ve got a gigantic touchscreen like interface for your computer. Course, you’ll need to have a projector to output the computer’s display onto the board, but for just over $500 it’s a pretty compelling way to get your students to pay attention and interact.
