Polyvision eno interactive whiteboards…one step closer. Macs are in the works too!
Though it seems like forever, it has really been 3 years in the making.
My eno bid specification was made available to vendors on 02-Feb-2010. The voters first approved the initiative at the end of 2007. Due to a variety of obstacles, including many personnel changes, it has taken far too long to get to this point. That said, I am once again very excited and optimistic about the project.
While the project is a multi-million dollar technology initiative, one of the largest parts is the addition of the eno boards and projectors. After much research and leg work, we are finally committing to outfitting 518 classrooms with eno interactive boards, wall mounted projectors and sound systems.
As part of unconnected project, at about the same time, we are also looking to provide every teacher with a Macbook Pro notebook computer to connect to the new boards and projectors.
If all goes well, my teachers will be very happy and their classrooms nicely outfitted by the end of April.
More to come.
