Interactive Displays

Interactive displays are classroom presentation hardware. These electronic whiteboards can detect user touch and allow the presenter to move objects or write directly on the screen..  They can display slides or any website or whatever the instructor calls up on a computer or tablet.  Whatever is written on the screen can be saved for later viewing.

At Smith, several of our classrooms have interactive white boards developed by Smart Technologies.
