Is it a bird, is it a plane...?

Well, it isn’t a TV. It is a super duper interactive touchboard you see in the TIS Library Media Center this year. Interactive touchboards are interactive electronic boards that provide an extra presentation tool for the class.

Our board can be used with a computer to present content from websites, WizTeach applications in math, science, language arts and more - in English or any of our target languages - and teachers can create their own lessons. Auditory, visual and tactile modalities are incorporated in the touchboard so it accommodates different learning styles.

The touchboard was paid for with funds raised during last spring's TIS Wine Tasting. Thank you! Feel free to contact me with questions.
