Title: Old computers in the classroom
Post by: Mozert on September 26, 2009, 08:28:39 AM
Which pens / bluetooth should I order for my 4th grade classroom in Massachusetts?  I'm not sure if the computers have been upgraded from Windows 98 yet.... they are quite old.  I have a projector and wiimote, I just want to be sure I order the right items to make a smartboard on my whiteboard.

Hi,

If you are looking for an easy-to-use pen, I would recommend the Groove 1.5 IR Pen as it is easy to use even for new users.

For the Bluetooth adaptor, try to get a Bluetooth adaptor that uses the Microsoft Bluetooth Stack as it will allow automatic connection to the Wiimote using Smoohboard's SmoothConnect.

With the SmoothConnect, you will just need to press the 1+2 buttons on the Wiimote and the connection will be automatically established.

For example, the Bluetooth adaptor can be purchased from http://wiiteachers.com/ (http://wiiteachers.com/)

Windows 7 & Smoothboard works a treat on old comps :)
