Interactive Projectors

An old whiteboard or a plain wall can be turned into a huge tablet that everyone can see with an interactive projector. You simply use a stylus pen with a computer to make notes, draw, or diagram. Fingers work too.

Large Format TV's

Large format TV's have huge large screen displays. If an interactive projector wouldn't work for you, the large screen TV may. However, there are interactive flat panel LED TV's available too. This option can connect to a PC so the teacher can annotate over any application running. They offer a high resolution, low glare, and an easy to read display.
