Only a couple months ago, IPEVO made the IS-01 Interactive Whiteboard System available to our Wishpool teachers. What’s Wishpool? It’s a community of tech-minded teachers who are using IPEVO tech to make a difference in their classrooms, all while sharing their stories to inspire others. It’s free to sign up, and teachers can “make a wish” to potentially get free IPEVO products!
It turns out that IPEVO’s inexpensive alternative to pricey smart boards — $149 for IS-01 versus many thousands of dollars for conventional interactive whiteboards, if you’re keeping score at home —is a big hit with Wishpoolers. Just check out these 8 different IS-01 benefits pulled right from the real stories of real teachers.
1. Simple and easy to use
“We received the Interactive Whiteboard System and tried it out the same day. It was so easy to use and really drew the students into the lesson!”
By Stephanie Peters of Bosco Catholic Schools System, Gilbertville, IA.

2. Add variety to everyday lessons
“The students or myself have used it daily since we received it. We have used it to play games, practice our handwriting, write group stories, and they love to just create free drawings. If I don’t use it they remind me to use my ‘magic pen.”
By Beckie Nieman of NORTH PIKE ELEM, Summit, MS.

3. A learning tool that’s fresh and fun to use
“The students’ eyes lit up when they saw something new and interactive they could use in the classroom. I have never seen so many students truly engaged to a math lesson and prepared to use a new piece of technology.”
By Amy Augle of Wilkins Elementary School, Justice, IL.

4. Save your work and students’ work, and come back to it later
“The whiteboard makes it easy for us to list ideas, draw, and create together. It’s great to be able to start brainstorming together and instead of erasing the marker board, we can save what we put together and come back to it later.”
By Lauren Veale of Lakeview Elementary, Negaunee, MI.

5. Tackle complex subjects, like math, in an interactive way
“Currently they are working on double digit multiplication in math. As students use the system to manipulate numbers on the whiteboard others are using their individual whiteboards to do the work. Everyone is engaged. What a wonderful sight to see.”
By Marita Schroeder of Bosco Catholic School System, Gilbertville, IA.

6. Alternate with iPads for effective cross-technology teaching
“They get excited to use it and it allows me to give them more technological experiences which is what our school wants. With more classrooms going one on one with iPads, this allows my students to have yet another opportunity to have technical experience and have fun learning as well.”
By Ashley Kleinhardt of Clare Primary School, Clare, MI.
