    Has anyone had experience using a wireless InterWrite SchoolPad? I'm thinking about taking the plunge, but before I spend a few hundred dollars of my summer teaching windfall, I'd love to hear whether or not you think it's worthwhile!

    I had access to one during student teaching and I loved it!! It was really great to have and use. THe kids enjoyed using it too. It wasn't an everyday activity type of thing but it was definitely a great way to make technology a little more accessible to the students.

    My school gave me one - finally! I love it. It took very little time to get used to it and the kids definitely like it. THey are better at using it than I am... I would recommend you use Notebook SOftware 10. I started just with powerpoints but Notebook is easy to use and more flexible. Maybe your school has that? I think it is used with interactive boards too.

    You'll love it!

    interwrites are older-they are being phased out by airliners. You might want to look into the price diference

    It looks like you need a Smartboard to use the Airliner, and we don't have them. The Interwrite Pad can be used to "write over" anything you've got in Word or PowerPoint, etc., as I understand it. I do have an LCD projector hooked up to my classroom computer.

    I like the ease of use, and how it seems to be compatable with most any other software. We have the Interwrite software, and Easiteach software.
