Splashtop Whiteboard allows teachers and students to easily turn their tablet into an interactive whiteboard. It is built on top of Splashtop Remote Desktop, the company’s award-winning app that enables users to create their own personal cloud to access files, applications, as well as view and listen to content, directly from a PC or Mac without the need to sync or copy files or applications across devices.
With Splashtop Whiteboard teachers and students can connect to a computer over Wi-Fi now from the Kindle Fire, as well as an Android tablet, iPad or NOOK. With this popular classroom app, teachers and students can view Flash media with fully synchronized video and audio, control their favorite educational applications and annotate lesson content with a full-featured toolbar.
Splashtop Whiteboard can improve student engagement and classroom management teachers since teachers interact with students at their desks or from all four corners of the classroom. For that reason, Val Verde Unified School District, in Riverside, California, has equipped all of their 800 teachers with Splashtop Whiteboard, and more than 42,000 teachers are using it in their classrooms nationwide
“Teachers who are Splashtop Whiteboard fans have been asking for our most popular educational app on the Kindle Fire and we delivered,” said Mark Lee, CEO of Splashtop. “Now teachers and students can enjoy the best interactive whiteboard app solution from their Kindle Fire at a fraction of the cost of traditional interactive whiteboard products.”
Using Splashtop Whiteboard, teachers can:
Be in Control – Have complete control over Mac or PC applications, such as Apple Keynote® or Microsoft PowerPoint®, all from their tablet. No need to be tied to the front of the class. Hand the tablet to a student and let their imagination do the rest!
Annotate Anything – Use gestures to draw and highlight using different colored and sized pens, highlighter, shapes and text tools over existing content or blank, ruled or graphed backgrounds. Take snapshots of the screen and save them to the gallery for later use or email them to students, parents or colleagues.
Engage an Audience – Rich media content is played in high definition on a tablet. Play Adobe Flash content, iTunes music, DVDs, CDs, and more. Slowly reveal text or images to keep an audience focused using the screen shade tool. Or use the spotlight tool to keep the attention on just one part of the screen.
