Installed 1 mimio and 2 teamboards.
Teamboards much more loved by staff JUST due to no need to get the pen.
Both software sets have their ups and downs - seems to be an even bet in this department so far.
BOTH MUST have fixed projector or it is a pain to recalibrate every time there is a bump.

We have put fixed computers on all as the extra connections AND the variable performance of the software on a variety of
"personalised" notebooks made the whole thing just that much more of a barrier to spur of the moment use (which is the way most
teachers work).

Hi Folks,

   About 18 months ago we had a discussion about the merits of Electronic Whiteboards.

At my school, the decision has been made to purchase 4 of these. The only issue is which brand to go with.

Here is the email from a colleague :

"As we are going to trial electronic whiteboards I would like some opinions on the pros and cons of the Promethean, mimio,
smartboard and teamboard. Which should we go with? "

 Could I ask those out there with experience in the use of any of these whiteboards to make their recommendations please ?

Best Wishes
