  • Want to find something cheap…want to go into any school or business storage closet and find something for FREE? Well, that’s an obsolete technology. It had a great run…throughout the 1980s and 1990s… it was the king of technology for the classroom and other presentations.
  • I used to be part of many classrooms and media centers. Now, I am being replaced with an Emerging Technology. Today, I can be found in few classrooms but in many supply closets.
  • The usefulness of technology can be determined by a model by Marshall McLuhan called the McLuhan’s Tetrad. It asks these four questions: What does the medium enhance? What does the medium make obsolete? What does the medium retrieve that had been obsolesced earlier? What does the medium flip into when pushed to extremes?
    Tetrad of media effects. (2010). Retrieved from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetrad_of_media_effects
  • As the television emerged into the classroom, it took the place of the filmstrips. But just as it had replaced the filmstrips…what was in its future? Did I see it coming? Maybe something that had more capiablities. Could some technology store lots of information and be used with the computer? Entrepreneurs took on these challenges and began the battle of the Whiteboards.

  • InterWrite boards don’t need ink, so no ink on your hands. They don’t need transparencies, so no need for storage bins. They have interactive movement of pieces embedded in the presentation, so no need for fumbling for overlays. They enhance objects to the appearance of 3-D. They are connected to computers. They can be used to display DVD’s and VHS that are implemented into lessons. Wonderful!
  • InterWrite boards offer many more technology possibilities than the television. Televisons were used primarily as a visual. InterWrite boards are visual and interactive which engages the students in the lessons being presented.
  • Teachers at Kemp Primary School are no longer using televisions in the classroom because we have InterWrite boards. InterWrite boards are an easy installation and continually upgrades as more innovations are found. This emerging technology requires no erasable pens and writes in multiple colors with a mock pen that can be also used as a mouse to navigate along the board. They allow the user to organize materials and link them right to the lesson plans. KPS teachers quickly decided that this technology could enhance teaching and saw how it motivated student learning.
  • The Rhymes of History for the InterWrite boards include: Record players, Filmstrips, and Slide projectors
  • Star Wars, Star Trek, The Jetsons, Futurama… all catalysts… for what? TECHNOLOGY! From the 3 D images of today to the
    food replicator of the future … science fiction is a tremendous influence. Many of the science fiction technologies showed a display that was on a raised and sometimes interactive screen…such as the InterWrite Boards.
  • Here is a timeline of Disr0uptive Technology. Media began in the classroom with record players as early as 1877. Media increased with the Slide Projectors in 1962 and Filmstrips in the 1970’s. Televisions began to appear in the classrooms in the 1980’s. Interwrite boards began to surface in the 1990’s and are growing more and more popular.
  • http://rmtc.fsdb.k12.fl.us/tutorials/whiteboards.html InterWrite boards do not qualify as an increasing returns technology because there are many other interactive whiteboards that were in existence on or about the time that Interactive Technology took the scene. However, InterWriteboards are among the frontrunners
  • Different companies have came out with versions of the interactive whiteboard. The Red Queens in this situation has been the InterWrite board verses Smartboards and the Promethean Project. These technologies came into being about the same time and are trying to infiltrate the school systems all over the United States. Watch out for them because they are powerful technologies.
  • Dr. Soloway (n.d.) stated that to address the leveling of the playing field is to eliminate the digital divide by putting Internet access on cell phones. The same can happen with interactive whiteboards. Display Skype capability of virtual field trips right on the Smartboard. Students could learn from others about their customs and learn tolerance for other’s cultures in the process.

  • Holographic images are on the horizon. Soon I’m sure that the interaction of students will be in the form of projected images in which students can use for interaction. They will be merged not only with the computer, but also with the big screen television…reducing the digital divide. Also it will have the use of an eBook reader that allows students to highlight passages and be voice activated to the parts of the text needed. It would have holograph capability to clarify the parts of the text that students are having trouble comprehending. This can be displayed as interactive by the use of InterWrite Technology.
