Wiimote Interactive Whiteboard

Because of the serious nature of the lack of funding for technology in schools here in Ireland, we have had to undertake a challenging project to help our students have access to technology. We are not recommending that every school try this, but we have found it to be beneficial in our attempts to give our students an equal opportunity to their counterparts in other countries. We have created a very cheap, affordable interactive whiteboard using a wii remote, Bluetooth connection, and a homemade infrared torchlight as an interactive pen. We have used our classroom wall boards as the projection area and we have been happy with the results.
The posts below outline how we made the interactive whiteboard and we want to share our findings with the many other under-funded schools who cannot afford the €5000 that interactive whiteboards usually cost.
