This slide show gives a great opportunity for low budget schools to have the INTERACTIVE WHITEBOARD experience withouth having to spend thousands of dollars.
I replicated the idea 2 years ago and I have used it with students, it is great and it works well.
The creator of this idea is Johnny Lee.

  1. 1. Interactive Whiteboard Johnny Lee’s Wiimote Project By Dany A. Tunque
  2. 2. Alright, so who came up with this wiimote project? <ul><li>The creator of this project is Johnny Lee. </li></ul><ul><li>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 </li></ul>Translate!!!
  3. 3. Translation of last slide :P <ul><li>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! </li></ul>
  4. 4. Johnny had a great IDEA!!! <ul><li>He also noticed that the Wii remotes were wireless and connection was made possible through “bluetooth” technology! </li></ul><ul><li>Yes, if you’re thinking almost everything has bluetooth now, you’re correct! </li></ul><ul><li>Johnny said “well, let me sync the Wii remote to my PC!” ( not really but you get my point.) </li></ul>
  5. 5. His findings were excellent! <ul><li>He used the Wii remote to read the movements of an InfraRed pen and used it as an input device for his computer. </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul>
  6. 6. He made an interactive whiteboard with $50!
  7. 7. Wiimote is a reality! Check it out!
  8. 8. My own Wiimote project <ul><li>The great thing about Johnny Lee is that everything that is needed is available for free on his website! </li></ul><ul><li>I was able to replicate Johnny Lee’s project! I only spent around $10, I already had a Wii. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Wiimote in the classroom <ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>Kids love technology. Offers great hands-on experience. </li></ul><ul><li>There are great free resources online that are meant to be used with a whiteboard like the Wiimote project. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Wiimote in the classroom <ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Wiimote in the classroom <ul><li>The Internet offers great possibilities and serve as extra tools that enhance any lesson plan. </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>Technology is a great educational tool when used correctly. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Credits <ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li>Nintendo Wii </li></ul>
