Many of you may already be familiar with our IW2 Wireless Interactive Whiteboard System, but for those of you who aren’t, IW2 is an affordable and versatile 3-piece system that enables you to transform most any flat surface into an interactive whiteboard. And today, we’re excited to say that we are going to replace the original long Interactive Pen that comes with the IW2 with a shorter one that’s much lighter and easier to hold and operate over long sessions, which can greatly enhance your IW2 experience! However, rest assured that we’ve kept everything else the same. So go ahead and grab the IW2 if you still haven’t gotten one!

IPEVO Notebook

First up is the latest offering from IPEVO — the IPEVO Notebook. At 5.83″ by 8.27″ (A5-sized), this notebook may seem pretty ordinary at first glance, but hey, “never judge a book by its cover”! Though small in size, we’ve managed to pack some impressive features into it.
Weighing 148 gsm and standing at 100 Ib, the PEFC certified paper we’ve chosen for this notebook is bleed-through and feathering resistant. It’s also been tested to perform flawlessly with a wide variety of different pen and ink combinations making it great for writing, note-taking, journaling, drawing, sketchnoting and more! And with its premium smyth-sewn binding, you can lay it flat completely for working on both sides of the pages. Take it a step further by pairing it with one of our doc cams and you’ll be able to instantly capture, share or present the contents of your notebook. It’s definitely a great and reliable way to create a two-way interactive learning process where you could share your notes/thoughts with your students, and having them share their notes/thoughts with you (and the rest of the class).

IPEVO Products in Action for Visually-Impaired Students

Using IPEVO Ziggi-HD Plus Document Camera and Presenter software to watch live video right on the laptop at the desk

Teachers, are you looking for smart solutions for the visually-impaired students in your class? Several IPEVO products can help students feel empowered by presenting teaching material better. And as you’ll see with the educators below, IPEVO products are already making a real difference for VI students.
For example, the VZ-1 Dual-Mode document camera can help present material on a laptop or monitor using either USB or VGA, depending on the existing tech in your classroom:


The iZiggi-HD Wireless Document Camera is our wireless doc cam and can go anywhere students go. From science class to art class and everywhere in between, iZiggi streams real-time video of teaching material to PC or Mac as well as iPad and Android tablets. Dedicated tablets are a great accessory for VI students, who can pinch-zoom the image for a closer look. And with our free Whiteboard App for tablets, a voice-over function provides an valuable audio component to accompany the images.


Also consider IPEVO’s IW2 Wireless Interactive Whiteboard System which provides a large, interactive image to engage VI students. All you need is a projector and a flat surface (usually the whiteboard will do). IW2 and your students’ curiosity will handle the rest as students directly control and explore material at the board.


And at the end of the day, in addition to providing better and larger views of material, there’s the simple issue of cost. As Tek-Ninja outlines in this helpful comparison article, so-called dedicated VI products can cost many hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Compare that to affordable IPEVO products doing many of the same things (or better), and the choice is easy for schools with tight budgets.
Want to learn more? Here’s a step-by-step “How To” guide for setting up IPEVO products for visually-impaired students. And here’s a handy video covering solutions for VI learners.
