Cool Tool: Interwrite Mobi

In Cool Tools on February 9, 2010 at 4:35 pm

WHEN YOU SEE THIS TOOL in action, it looks a little bit like magic. Imagine a teacher walking amongst his students and carrying a tablet, and what he writes immediately appears on a large screen in the front of the classroom. The teacher can lean in and, on a small scale, show a student one-on-one what he means—but the rest of the class can simultaneously follow along with what they’re talking about on a larger scale. Quite ingenious, and it comes with a CPSPulse (a handheld “clicker” resembling a remote control) that allows students to have an instant feedback system for pop quizzes, or in eduspeak, this student response system enables a classroom to generate seamless formative assessments for improved learning and to instantly assess comprehension. In reality, students are so engaged they won’t want to pass notes behind the teacher’s back—if only because he’s no longer writing on a chalkboard at the front of the room, and they’re too occupied with learning that’s actually fun. Check out a video of it here.
