mimmio-interactive-touchscreen-device

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.  Check the video after the leap.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
