"With interactive whiteboards now available for well under $1000, many districts that once saw the technology as out of reach are suddenly turning to it as a viable option."
Plano, TX (PRWEB) April 11, 2011
Motivated by a desire to better empower educators and fueled by record-setting budget cuts across the nation, Newline Products is unveiling an ambitious plan to make interactive whiteboard technology available and affordable to every school in America.
Sold under brand names such as Smartboard, IdeaMax, Promethean, and the PolyVision Eno, interactive whiteboard technology is quickly becoming the norm for classroom instruction with hundreds of districts already standardized on the technology in lieu of static whiteboards.
"The demand we've seen from schools and businesses has been tremendous," said Chris Bradford, President of Newline Products, "Even in turbulent economic times, many districts are maintaining a keen focus on helping teachers get through to students in new, innovative ways."
Interactive whiteboards work in tandem with a PC and projector to show a large-screen image on top of a whiteboard. Users can then manipulate, draw, record on, and write over educational content while working with their own computer software. IdeaMax interactive whiteboards take this a step farther by offering a true porcelain surface that is compatible with dry-erase markers and requires no special stylus or pens.
Despite the myriad benefits of the technology, however, the traditionally high cost of interactive whiteboards and tight school district budgets have combined to stand between students and a first-rate education.
"It is unfortunate that finances have in many cases directly limited the opportunities available to our children," said Bradford. "As a company focused so heavily on education, we are proud to do our part to bring these game-changing products into schools and classrooms that simply could not afford them before."
