Title: New from Bahrain
Post by: Aliaaa on August 02, 2009, 03:23:55 PM
Hello everyone,
My Name is Aliaa Attiya from Bahrain. I've been teaching English for 9 years now and I had the chance to use IWB at my school. Last February I left my school and started my own class. As I was so fascinated by the possibilties of an IWB in a classroom I considered buying one for my class.
Last May I was checking online for their prices and saw John Lee's video on Youtube. I was really excited and couldn't sleep that night. My husband kept telling me how I was over reacting and should take it slow. But I couldn't and went to all the shops that sell the wiimote, LED, wires and started to use the soldering iron.
In two days I had my first wiiboard. I was happy but because I didn't have access to the Vishay LEDs I didn't get the best of it.
As I got a little bit disappointed-because remember I had the chance to use the real IWB- and the result I have is not perfect. I decided to join the forum and ask for help. Now am still waiting for the IR pens I ordered to check it again. Wish me luck.

Thanks for the help to those who helped me.

Looking forward to a great experience with the wiiboard as my students are waiting.

Hi Aliaa,

After getting your IR pen, you should not have much issues with this interactive whiteboard solution. :)

Maybe at the beginning you need to get use to the writing style. But after a short period of trying to click and write, you will find that it will work as well as or even better than an actual interactive whiteboard. This is possible with the many features that we have put together in the Smoothboard software.

All the best in your wiimote whiteboard experience!

Regards,
Boon Jin
