It is a great little video talking about how sex is used in the video game industry. I goes beyond complaining about it. It talks about appropriate ways to include it. A video like this is almost enough to make we wish that I taught some sort of social studes class...almost.

One of the techs installed the software from a SMARTboard on my laptop yesterday. Great news - it works with my WiiMote interactive whiteboard! You can also download a free trial version of the the SMARTboard Notebook software. (Download it here.)
Here is the slideshow that I showed at my demo yesterday (just in case anyone wanted to see the pictures again).
Here is a link to my wiki where I have linked many of the resources I have found for the poor man's IWB.
Well today I actually used the IWB for teaching (not just playing games!). I like it. I created a flash arcade game quiz using Classtools.net. Lots of fun!
P.S. I am still jealous of anyone with a real SMARTboard.

Wow. A Wii remote hacked into a DIY interactive whiteboard. It even works to turn your regular monitor into a tablet!
All that you need is a projector, a Wii remote, a laptop with Bluetooth, and some sort of IR light source (an easy DIY project) - oh and some open source downloads.
Time to start rolling my loose change to buy the parts for one.
