“Interactivity” means that your computer interacts with a whiteboard and, usually, a projector.
In an interactive presentation, your computer image is projected onto a dry-erase board or screen, and the teacher or student uses a special marker (for a white board) or special tablet (for a projection screen) to that works just like a computer mouse. You can open files, programs, videos, and perform special functions, such as annotation, importing, moving and manipulating images and objects, on-screen typing, mapping, layering and much more. Interactivity is a portal into a world of new teaching and presenting possibilities limited only by your imagination.
Studies show that interactivity increases student engagement levels. Interactivity is an important development; every classroom in the U.S. will probably be interactive within a matter of years.

What to Consider when Purchasing Interactivity:
Devices like eBeam now provide all the benefits of interactivity at a fraction of the cost of older specialized “boards”. Plus, they’re easier to use and don’t take up space.
- Interactivity is hardware-based. Most of the newer devices will run any software, meaning software is no longer a primary consideration.
- Training is essential for successful implementation of interactive products.
We recommend on-site evaluations of interactive products. As a new technology, it’s particularly critical to learn what’s best for you.
