Using the annotate function for movies

One of the great uses for an interactive whiteboard is the ability to use the screen capture and annotate feature.  One of the neat things you can do with the screen annotate function is the ability to scribble over the top of videos.  Whether it’s to point out symbolism in a movie or highlighting the correct angles you should take when running into high jump, screen annotate provides you with a tool for accurately pointing out the finer details.

Using different pointers

The value of having a touch based IWB, such as 2Touch, is that you can use any pointing device that you want to control the board.  For example, when using a paint programme (such as art rage) use a paint brush as your pointing device.  It adds to the fun and helps you to get the most out of the interactivity that your IWB posses.
