How To Make Your Own Smartboard
How to Make Your Own Smartboard (PDF)
An interactive whiteboard (or “smartboard”) is a large interactive display that connects to a computer and projector. A projector projects the computer’s desktop onto the board’s surface where users control the computer using a pen, finger, stylus, or other device—in this case, an infrared pen. Unlike other systems, this one is mobile and can be projected onto any surface. If you want smartboard capabilities in a classroom without a smartboard, follow Prof. Michael Bitz’s workshop handout to learn how to establish your own mobile Smartboard system with your laptop and a Wii remote.
