Schools get high-tech whiteboards

TWO Northern Rivers schools have been given new electronic "interactive" whiteboards as part of a state-wide rollout the devices to 737 schools.

Lismore MP Thomas George praised the delivery of the whiteboards to Blakebrook Public School, which gets two of the devices, and Murwillumbah South Infants School has received one.

"These interactive white boards are a fantastic resource for teachers and students and really take learning to a new level," Mr George said.

"This is what teaching and learning looks like in the 21st Century.

"Students and teachers love them.

"Teachers have a world of knowledge at their fingertips when they use an interactive white board linked to a computer.

"Teachers can even create their own tailored visual lessons."

The devices combine touch screen technology with a computer and projector to put a computer display on the whiteboard that teachers and students can manipulate directly by writing or drawing on the whiteboard.
