Let’s face it – English grammar and spelling aren’t the easiest (or most exciting) parts of the curriculum for many students. So why not combine these age-old subjects with some new technology – namely, the IS-01 Interactive Whiteboard System – to create some outside-the-box fun? After interacting with the material in an effective new way, your students might just start to love language.
If you’ve used the IS-01 Interactive Whiteboard System in your classroom, we want to share your story to inspire other educators. And as thanks, you’ll get the chance to win free IPEVO gear! It’s all happening in our Share and Win event starting July 21st.

Arlene Tucker, an art teacher based in Finland and the creator of the Dear You international art exchange program, recently shared her experiences as an IPEVO product user.
“You set up a camera, and that’s it,” said Arlene, with respect to starting a foreign exchange class under the Dear You program she created. “It could not be easier.” Arlene explained that it’s been beneficial for her students to exchange so many ideas, homework and pieces of art with students in foreign countries.

A Field Trip
Spring is a great time to start a garden if you’re an educator looking for a special activity that will get students interacting and out of their chairs.

How is the Ziggi-HD USB Document Camera helping police put criminals behind bars? Ask Paul Crowley, president and founder of Infinadyne.

More and more teachers are using iPads in the classroom, whether it’s for special projects or for everyday lessons. And when you get that many tablets together — and that many young students who may or may not have perfect charging habits — keeping all the iPads charged throughout the day becomes a huge challenge.
That’s why IPEVO introduced the USB SuperCharger. The USB SuperCharger is a convenient 4-slot charging station that will keep those iPads juiced. Using just a single wall socket, teachers can keep up to 4 iPads charging.
