Interactive Work space

Can have many uses which allow for student participation in lectures; collaborative work and simulations of the real world - no more squinting at the screen from the top of the lecture theatre! there is lots of potential for this - the customised expense... hmm
Having these in school, make sure the kids master the art of writing first before they move things around by finger! actually encouraging writing through using the finger and having the letter talk back to you once its correct can be great fun so I'm all for it! Those into gaming and pushing buttons do have a more engaging experience as they 'believe' they are doing powerful things and are in control so I can see its appeal...I think it can work well in the learning environment users being interactive rather than passive, making the learning activity more meaningful and therefore more likely to be retained (this has been said before!)
