Not Very Interactive

All of the topic “lounges” here at NECC have an interactive whiteboard with a projector.

However, in the dozen or so presentations I’ve stopped to watch over the past two days, no one has been using the interactive part. It’s just a screen for the projector.

That’s not another criticism of the devices.

Just an observation from a conference full of people who are very whiteboard savvy, and where two of the big sponsors make their profits selling the devices.

    I got frustrated about the same thing. When I was up at the SL lounge I couldn’t find the pen. Without the pen the boards couldn’t conduct. I guess I really prefer the Smartboards where you can use your finger, your big toe or any pointing device to operate.

    Good seeing you at NECC
