We have been enjoying using our Interactive Whiteboard System. The kids call it our "Magic Wand" and always want to know when they can use the magic wand. It really engages them in the learning and keeps them moving and interactive. It works with a variety of my programs and allows them to use the programs themselves. We are all having fun working together. I have had adjustments made to my projector so we can hopefully use it on a permanent basis on our whiteboard. Thank you for this wonderful project! We were all so excited to receive this product!!

My class LOVES to use the Interactive Whiteboard System! They really enjoy taking an active role in their learning and are proud of the fact that they can "show what they know!" By far, the "coolest" way that we have used the Interactive Whiteboard System was when several of my students gave interactive science presentations to the rest of the class. Instead of standing in front of the classroom while struggling to read through their report, my students were able to incorporate a wide variety of multimedia supports (including recording their own voices) to create some wonderful presentations. Not only were they able to clearly demonstrate what they had learned, but they also succeeded in making the information accessible to their fellow classmates! This is a fantastic product that I can see us using for many years to come. Thank you so much IPEVO!

Over the last few months, my IPEVO P2V USB Document Camera & Microscope Adapter Kit has been an indispensable instructional tool. Since receiving this from the iPevo Wishpool, I have almost destroyed my document camera because of how often I use the device and how mobile it is. Regardless of my overuse of the P2V, the doc camera carries on like an indestructible super soldier. I travel between three elementary schools and use/lend the the P2V document camera on a daily basis. Because of this, I had to include multiple images on how I have used these tools.

As show with the cheek smear image, I have used the device to connect to microscopes and display images within a variety of classrooms. This was one of the easiest ways to display an image from a microscope to the whole class. Many students have a difficult time focusing a microscope image and it worked well for demonstrating how to focus as well as what the image should look like. In one of the images posted here, a student was demonstrating how to focus a microscope for her classmates. The P2V has come in handy when demonstrating how to use different iPad or iPhone apps to teachers, while in after school professional development trainings. And the IPEVO is just fun to use for taking interesting photos that I have used for my own stock photography to use on my blog or for presentations. But, my favorite use of the P2V camera so far was when students used the IPEVO's microscope image for the background of a plant video they created. The image provided here shows students in the middle of this report report, which was filmed in front of a green screen and the P2V image was superimposed after filming. Currently, students are drawing scenes for a short film, which the P2V will take pictures of and the students will use the images for the backdrop of their short film. I'm excited about what we can come up with next.

So, thank you IPEVO for making my wish come true. My students, colleagues, and I appreciate your generosity.

Thank you so much for this product! Our Spanish I and II classes use it to make learning much more interactive. The students are much more engaged in their learning. Even though our students are in high school, they still benefit from being able to interact and manipulate with the lesson, rather then just watching it. Thank you!

My school is in the process of building a new building for the Middle and High school students. My classroom is the size of a small office and I have 6 students with special needs. I will not be able to move to a bigger classroom until after Christmas and would love to use my IPEVO IS-01 Interactive Whiteboard System in my new classroom. I did take a picture of me using it at a teacher's meeting. Thank you, again! :)

I need it because...
As a Math Teacher there are often classroom explanations that I am unable to effectively demonstrate to the pupils due to the level of complexity associated with them, the details that are lost and the sheer number of students in a class. Being able to demonstrate these explanations graphically and an interactive format is effective. It would benefit students learning enormously.

The main reason I “wish listing” for the wireless presentation system is because it would allow me to move freely through instruction and present concepts in a very interactive method without the mess and concern of wiring connections at the beginning of instruction and after instruction.
Previous to obtaining new computers- desktops we had laptops which were more portable and easy to connect to my class projector, however during the past recent months I have been unable to effectively used the projector. Anytime I have been able to use it in class I am able to encourage the use of technology within the classroom: using my document camera daily, ipad –educreations, and created interactive PowerPoint presentations. All of these instructional strategies are easily modified for differentiated instruction which I have found very helpful for my learners.

I would be so appreciative to receive this item and I really look forward to hearing back from the committee who decides on the outcome.

I engage my students by having them create presentations for books they have read, persuasive arguments, and commercials they create. I currently have a wired projector system on a cart that is cumbersome and needs to be connected to my desk-top computer for use. I often trip over the wires, and the cart obstructs students' view.

I need it because...
The IPEVO Wireless presentation system would help teachers make better use of our 1970's classrooms to 21st century learning studios. Our current set up of our classrooms allow for one computer to be hooked up. All of the children need to gather around to see what is being projected. When active learning is occurring, it seems like the projector is never where it needs to be nor is it connected to the right computer! Having the system would release these constrains! IT would also release the teacher computer to a child if they want to use it! Any bluetooth device now becomes our learning too! Bring on curation and creation and true collaboration! What an awesome thought!

I need this so I can use it with my new projector and Mac computer. I am currently on a chart traveling from class to class and with little time to set up. If I get this I will be able to save time setting up my computer station and have less cables to carry. My students will be able to display their work at the same time and I will be able to promote speaking, reading and writing skills in Spanish.
This will be a great opportunity to incorporate technology in my classrooms and able to use my computer from any part of the room as I am monitoring students work. I will be able to differentiate instruction using this in the classroom. I am very thankful to you for all you support.

I need it because...
I am a first year teacher in a title I school with no technology and no windows. Because my kids require modifications to learn in their own way; I had a very difficult time this year trying to teach without technology (which is my background). With 8 kids, 3-different curriculums running, and two computers, my students would get very frustrated waiting to go on the computer to learn a skill (sometimes it would cause outburst in my room); it really offsets their mood because they don't understand why they have to wait in order to get 10 minutes on the computer. I'd love to have a fully functioning technology system to teach my kids how to read and write. You should see the light in their eyes when the computers go on. Research has shown that technology works wonder with students with Autism. I would love for you to grant me this wish of receiving the high-definition presentation system and if possible an LCD projector and Ziggi HD doc camera (or anything else you can give). This would mean the world to my students and to me. I've seen the growth in my students, however, I do know the potential that they are capable of and having the appropriate resources to achieve this goals is essential. I would purchase myself, but my money goes towards making sure my students have supplies and food before they walk out the door to go home. I am slotted to loop with my kids next year, in the same classroom. I'd love for them to walk in the door and be ready to learn with a fully functioning classroom that has technology. I want to make that dream come true for them. Many blessings.

I recently received a projector for my art room to display images from my laptop. This has been a wonderful tool to use for projecting art work, PowerPoint presentations, internet museum artwork and more. The challenge I have now is trying to show images without being in the way. A wireless system would allow for me to be seated out of the sight range with my computer. My art students would have a clear view of the presentations and, with my desk behind my students, I can monitor their behavior during presentations.

My middle school special education classroom was blessed to receive an IPEVO Interactive Whiteboard System earlier this school year. It has turned out to be an incredibly exciting and motivating learning tool! My students are always asking if we are going to use the "touch board" today! Unfortunately, because of the way our classroom is set up, I have to hook up an assortment of long cables in order to use the system. With a wireless presentation system, I would be able to have everything connected and ready to go at all times. It would be so wonderful to be able to get more use out of our Interactive Whiteboard System! Thank you for your consideration.

My district is getting all the classroom teachers Interactive Whiteboards and 1 to 1 devices. The art and music rooms are the one place in the district that is not getting these technology upgrades. The upgrades in art and music come from teachers writing grants or paying out of pocket for hardware. This wireless presentation system will allow the myself (the art teacher) and my colleague the music teacher to present student work from the four different computers as well as project our work onto student computers. I just attempted a stop motion animation unit with my fourth graders. We have three iPads to share with the entire school but after two months, finally achieved each fourth grader creating their own video. Then, I tried to present the videos to each class by using my iPevo camera (thank you!!!!) to film the iPad onto my TV screen. The results were better than 30 kids huddled around one iPad but this presentation system would completely change my classroom.

I teach art to k-8th grade students at a small private school. I have a very small budget, therefore I have two fund raisers per year to supplement. With my fund raising money I usually buy canvas' for the students to paint on with acrylics and I buy other fun supplies. I raised money several years ago and purchased a document camera. It is such a hassle to hook up to my computer because of the room arrangement. This system seems ideal for my class set up. My students love when I have the camera on, they know something exciting is about to happen in our lesson. I would also love to be able to turn my whiteboard into an interactive board. I can think of all sorts of ways to enhance the students art instruction.
Thank you in advance for this opportunity.

Artfully yours,

Jodi Beavers

I need it because...
In my classroom, I try to incorporate technology into my teachings as often as possible. I believe that I have a duty as a teacher to teach students how to use resources such as computers, programs, the internet, iPads, and recording devices to help them problem solve, communicate and collaborate. I need this device so that I can continue striving for a classroom in which students can move around and collaborate safely. With this device, the need for menacing cords will be gone and my students can freely present from my computer and collaborate with each other and enjoy full mobility. I would be able to teach from anywhere in the room which would foster greater discussions. This is the reason I wish to have the High-Definition Wireless Presentation System.

I need it because...
Our classroom is filled with the chatter of little voices and active twelve year old students. At the front of the room, I have students in charge of each area of our classroom technology. I have about four assistant students who help me with my technology with plugging, unplugging, changing cords, going between screens and computers. Each of my four students have to stay on task and when we move between the document camera back to the smart-board each one assists. At times, it is very time consuming and difficult to remember which cord goes where. We are switching back and forth so much, I am afraid we will damage one of the ports. What can we do, we could do so much and save our technology with the wireless presentation station. Of course, my students may be disappointed because they will not be able to assist as much but the kids will be excited to help with the presentation station. Please help us save our technology by donating this presentation station.

I need it because...
Art has always been seen as and educational outlet for my students and it is my goal as their teacher to provide them with as many experiences into the art world as possible. Bringing a form of technology into this art classroom will give me the ability to do that in one more way!!

My students are under-served, under-performing inner city middle school and high school girls. They are 65% African-American, 30% Latin-American, and 5% other. They are of lower social-economic standing, resulting in 99% of the school being on free or reduced lunch. The majority of my students come from single-parent homes, with many living with an extended family member, be it a grandmother, aunt, or sister. Despite these challenges, many of my students are outspoken, very opinionated, and willing to share their perspective, but operate several grade-levels below their current grade. It is our school's goal to provided girls and young women with a rigorous college preparatory education focused on science, technology, engineering, and math in a supportive environment that nurtures self confidence, inspires leadership, encourages critical thinking, and promotes academic excellence. We offer an extended school day, extended school year, within small learning group environment.

With the art world ever changing within the growing field of technology, it is my goal for this high-definition wireless presentation adaptor to bring a new light into my art classroom. I want to be able to use it as not only a teaching tool for the students to actively learn from, but be able to truly engage with. My classroom is very small, and bursting at the seams with the necessary supplies that an art classroom needs. A bulky 'SmartBoard' would never be able to fit without taking up valuable wall space in my classroom. A resource like this could be so, absolutely, valuable!

My students are very energetic and love the opportunity to put their creativity to the test and I truly believe that this wireless presentation adaptor will help them to bring their talent to a whole new light in a way they have never had the opportunity to experience!
