    I am blessed to have both a smartboard and an elmo, and I'm not sure I could go back to teaching without them!

    I have a Promethean and really love using it! The students are more engaged in the lesson.

    I project my e-books on my board and get some great classroom discussions/learning going that way since I only buy one or two books at a time with my points at scholastic.com/storia

    If someone was going to rob my interactive whiteboard, I might leap myself in front of it. It has helped me in so many ways. I was ready to have the flags fly at half mast when the bulb died one day. (They last about 2 years). I think you get that I love my interactive whiteboard.

    There are many good brands, but the Promethean board is the best in my opinion.

    Interesting first post.

    I have a SmartBoard and document camera. I use them several times a day.
    Yay.

    I have a Promethean and I LOVE it. I had a StarBoard last year and it didn't ever work properly so I only got to use it as a projector. :( Anything is probably good though.

    I had to teach summer school in a room without a smartboard and document camera-two things I have had my entire teaching career (5 years), I was lost!

    I have a Promethean Board and document camera and it makes a world of difference. I thought mine wasn't working one day and I left school to get my friend to troubleshoot. It was a horrible day; you will definitely love a whiteboard.

    I have a Promethean board and I love teaching with it. I am waiting for my document camera.

    knitter,

    You will love your document camera. I use mine everyday.

    My smartboard keeps my add self on track all day, lol! My entire day is somehow on it - from high-frequency word practice to building words, math games to timers to discovery streaming movies to Scholastic magazine resources... I think you get the drift.
