[callout]My Interactive White Board (IWB) is gone, and I'm never going back. In today's show, I'll tell you how I'm using the Jtouch Interactive Display Board in my classroom. It is much more than an interactive whiteboard. (In some ways it is like a massive touch screen computer.) But with Airplay and also a cool tool called LightCast, every single device in my BYOD classroom can broadcast to the Jtouch display at the front of my classroom. When I'm not teaching, I even show huge moving scenes from nature on the board. I love it. Listen to this show to learn more about how I'm using the Jtouch from Infocus or click here to see it in action. Thank you Jtouch for sponsoring today's show.
