The software also allows for the students to annotate over the screen and adds a useful toolbar to link into classroom management.
The only downfall to this system is the cheapest package, for 1x Teacher and 15x Students is $499! I huge chunk in any schools budget.
When my students connect to my computer my PC's display is then mirrored onto their display, creating a handheld version of my smart board. Now the children can do anything that I can do on my PC; Typing, Annotating, Dragging and Dropping, online games etc... but from their own device. I love doing shared writing like this as the children can actually add their ideas themselves!
As always, if you would like any advice or practical help with setting up a system please feel free to contact me!
