    • Interactive Whiteboard Johnny Lee’s Wiimote Project By Dany A. Tunque
    • Alright, so who came up with this wiimote project?
      • The creator of this project is Johnny Lee.
      • As is stated on his website, the wii remote contains a 1024x768 infrared camera with built-in hardware blob tracking of up to 4 points at 100Hz
      Translate!!!
    • Translation of last slide :P
      • Johnny Lee noticed that the wii remote had an infra red camera inside. This camera can track IR-light and use it to track movement. The Nintendo wii’s signal bar that is place on the television set contains infra-red lights on each end. As the remotes are moved these capture their position in relation to the IR-lights, making the “realistic” movement on Wii games possible!
    • Johnny had a great IDEA!!!
      • He also noticed that the Wii remotes were wireless and connection was made possible through “bluetooth” technology!
      • Yes, if you’re thinking almost everything has bluetooth now, you’re correct!
      • Johnny said “well, let me sync the Wii remote to my PC!” ( not really but you get my point.)
    • His findings were excellent!
      • He used the Wii remote to read the movements of an InfraRed pen and used it as an input device for his computer.
      • Once the Wii remote is paired to a computer via Bluetooth, then any surface where the image of a computer’s desktop is projected on can easily be used an interactive whiteboard. All instructions and software can be found on Johnny Lee’s website.
    • He made an interactive whiteboard with $50!
    • Wiimote is a reality! Check it out!
    • My own Wiimote project
      • The great thing about Johnny Lee is that everything that is needed is available for free on his website!
      • I was able to replicate Johnny Lee’s project! I only spent around $10, I already had a Wii.
    • Wiimote in the classroom
      • This technology can be easily used on every subject and grade level. I prefer to use it with math, although it’s a great tool to use when taking a class on a Virtual Field Trip.
      • Kids love technology. Offers great hands-on experience.
      • There are great free resources online that are meant to be used with a whiteboard like the Wiimote project.
    • Wiimote in the classroom
      • As with anything that is used to enhance students’ learning, nothing should be abused. It is important to remember Bloom’s Taxonomy when preparing any lesson plan.
      • The Wiimote project is perfect to give students the chance to stand in front of the classroom and explain some of the procedures they used to solve a math problem as well as analyze a difficult text that could be projected onto a screen.
    • Wiimote in the classroom
      • The Internet offers great possibilities and serve as extra tools that enhance any lesson plan.
      • All of the software and how-to’s are found on Johnny Lee’s website. You’ll also find other people replicating his original experiment. Some of these users actually come up with updates if necessary.
      • Technology is a great educational tool when used correctly.
