Would anyone be able to point me to any white papers or empirical data on
interactive whiteboard application interfaces? projection based. SMART board,
Pegasus, Mimio Board?

I'm working on Classroom presentation application that ideally can be used on
"various whiteboards" with it's own native tools rather than utilizing each
boards proprietary toolset.

Looking for any literature, information on teacher/board interaction...
toolbar orientation, projection resolution, etc...

Lots to think about and evaluate. I know the UK is ahead of us in the states
with board adoption... wondering if any UK ixd'ers can point me to any useful
info.

Thanks in advance.

Hi, this is my first post to the list and I'm not sure if the
convention is top or bottom posting (I did read the guidelines) so
apologies if this is wrong.

May I suggest contacting Becta (British Educational Communications and
Technology Agency) http://www.becta.org.uk/ I did a lot of consulting
work with them about 5 years ago when the British Government were
running a programme to get interactive whiteboards into all schools.

They have good relationships with all the suppliers and have done a
lot of research on the use of them in schools and colleges, so I think
they would be in a good position to help.

Kind regards
