So . . . What’s an INTERWRITEMOBI?
Do you use an INTERWRITEMOBI in your classroom?
We are interested in learning more about your experience with this system as an MISD teacher or student.
The INTERWRITEMOBI is a tablet that can be used with a computer and a projector to enhance instruction and engage students.
As the manufacturer’s web site notes, teachers and students can “annotate, highlight or make notes over any computer program. You can even save, print or e-mail your lessons and all notations to students who are away from class.”
During an evaluation conducted by the Instructional Technology team and a group of classroom teachers during the spring semester of 2009, the “Mobi” was selected as the interactive tablet for a district pilot of interactive technologies in some MISD intermediate and middle school math classrooms.
The quality of its software (particularly its user friendliness), options for expansion, and its overall value as an instructional tool were cited as reasons for its selection.
There’s a video on this site that shows the INTERACTIVEMOBI in use . . .
Other fun facts:
- Up to nine INTERWRITEMOBIs can be used simultaneously with the same computer and projector.
- The INTERWRITE MOBI can interface with the CPS brand of classroom response system.
