Using interactive now!Board technology in preschool and a give-away!

by Deborah J. Stewart, M.Ed. on February 27, 2012

in Give-Aways, now!Board Technology

Using interactive whiteboard technology is new to me so when I was offered up the chance to try out the brand new now!Board from Learning Resources, I didn’t even have to think twice before I said, “Yes!”…

The now!Board comes in a small box and has a little pouch to store the parts in. It is surprisingly very small and easy to set up for use. In just a few short minutes, I was able to set it up and give it my first try…

A now!Board can be used on any solid flat surface but it is recommended that you use a surface that wont get easily scratched like a dry erase board when using the stylus. However, if you use the wand, which looks like a hand, you can easily use the now!board on a wall or screen. For my first trial run, I set the now!Board up at home and used it on my kitchen wall (with the help of my little grandson)…

The now!Board lets you project an activity from your computer onto a flat surface then use the wand or stylus to move and manipulate the activity.  I was thrilled with addition of the wand to the now!board set of tools. The wand is very kid friendly and the little pointed finger is simple to use for selecting and guiding objects to move across the wall…

To use the now!Board, you will need a projector, a computer, and a flat surface to project on. I already had the computer and the projector so all I needed was to add the now!Board and was all good to go…

My young preschool friends over at Learning Time Preschool Geist (pictured in these photos) were excited about giving this a try with me…

I had the screen set up to be rather large which meant the children had to use their whole body to interact with the screen. I can easily adjust the height or size of the “screen” when I first set it up ( configure the screen) to use on the wall but for today – we went big!

The children had to learn to stand just a bit off to the side so their shadow would not get in the way of what they were doing or looking at. The children caught on quickly and were so focused on reaching for the paint, or digging the dirt, or watering the plants that they never even seemed to notice their shadows at all…

The very next thing I will need to do is research different websites that I can use to integrate the now!board into my own classroom. I can see so many possibilities.  When integrating any kind of technology into your classroom, it is always a good idea to connect the use of technology with real life, hands on activities. For example, we can use the now!Board to plant seeds in our virtual garden and then we can explore and plant real seeds in our classroom garden too…

Interactive technology like the now!Board can extend real life learning in many ways and keep the learning positive and fun in the process. I look forward to exploring all the amazing ways we can integrate the now!Board into what we are already doing in our classroom…

I can not wait until I get to play with one of these! I really really want one. I learned on the website that I, as a teacher, can’t afford one of these for my classroom.

2 Verlina February 27, 2012 at 3:58 pm

LOL! I can’t afford one either LOL!

3 deborah evans February 27, 2012 at 7:22 am

This would be perfect in our classroom! So much fun for sight words, shapes, and so much more! LOVE it!

5 Jenny Gonsoulin February 27, 2012 at 7:23 am

I love the idea of the now!board. With technology becoming such a significant part of education now!board makes it accessible for even schools with the smallest budgets.

6 deborah evans February 27, 2012 at 7:24 am

I like the now!Board on facebook too! WISH I had the money for one.

7 kjasus February 27, 2012 at 8:28 am

this seems to be the greatest thing since sliced bread! i soooooooooooooo need this in my 5th grade classroom! i love that i can switch between virtual whiteboard, web and my applications. seeing the picture of the map thrilled me as we are doing a lot of geography this year and all my maps are slightly outdated.

10 Sharnet February 27, 2012 at 8:41 am

I love this but as an in-home provider I cannot afford this. I know my preschoolers would learn so much from it!!! I learned that I could easily use it as I am not so tech savvy.

11 Jennifer M. February 27, 2012 at 8:59 am

I would LOVE to donate this wonderful tool to my daughter’s preschool!!

12 Charity February 27, 2012 at 8:59 am

LOVE all of the counting games!

13 Amy Osborn February 27, 2012 at 9:00 am

I would love to use the now board for maps in the preschool classroom.

15 Cindy February 27, 2012 at 9:02 am

so many possibilities, another wonderful resource.

16 Shelby February 27, 2012 at 9:10 am

I learned that the now!Board is used with websites and doesn’t have its own software and such. There are so many great websites out there for preschoolers but we don’t use them because using the mouse and six kids crowding around the laptop just doesn’t work. Having the large scale image and being able to interact with the site with a wand would be a fun and different learning experience that I’m sure the kids would enjoy.

17 Estefania Rishmawy February 27, 2012 at 9:24 am

I want one of this boards NOW!!! I love how its very easy to use, and the price. At our Learning Center we could use this for our summer camps, teach kids how to read, prepare classes for bigger groups, use online learning games to teach the letters, etc!!! WUHUUU

18 Krystie February 27, 2012 at 9:29 am

Going to the website, I learned that the now! Board is easy to use. Its a great product to use in a setting where children need the hands on fun that we bring into the classroom all the time. Its also a great way to introduce a new lesson. As at teacher at a co-op I don’t think I could afford one but I would be interested in saving up. I think this is something children could greatly benefit from.

19 cathy February 27, 2012 at 9:29 am

OMG! This seems to be so much easier to use than the traditional ones! I would love to win!

20 danyel February 27, 2012 at 9:30 am

the uses look endless… interactive colors, shapes, numbers & letters would be just the start!! what an awesome tool!!

21 Krystie February 27, 2012 at 9:30 am

brand new fan of now!board on fb!

24 autumn February 27, 2012 at 9:41 am

Wow! This is a sweet alternative to the expensive smartboard. I REALLY LOVE IT. I could use the gift card I am a stay at home mom homeschooling and this would be perfect in our learning room. I used to teach public school and had a smart board in my room. I considered one, but this is much more affordable!

25 Sarah friel February 27, 2012 at 9:41 am

This now!board is super cool! I would use it in my classroom to enhance what we already do! The kids would enjoy it and it seems very user friendly! The parents might also like it because its an interactive way for the children to learn something rather than just sitting at a computer!

26 autumn February 27, 2012 at 9:45 am

I liked the now!board facebook page. Yay!

27 Sarah friel February 27, 2012 at 9:47 am

I just liked now!board and I’ve liked Teach Preschool for atleast a year or so on Facebook!!!!!

28 autumn February 27, 2012 at 9:48 am

I like you on facebook! Love everything you have to teach the world about teaching.

29 Nicole Rendon February 27, 2012 at 9:48 am

This would be awesome for our homeschool! The older children could help out the younger ones and everyone would have fun!

30 Jill February 27, 2012 at 9:50 am

I learned (and LOVE) that it is portable! We could take this to music or library class with us to share with our cooperating teachers in their classrooms!

31 Taleah February 27, 2012 at 9:57 am

To be able to toggle between educational programs and other programs (‘m thinking YouTube or DVDs) is awesome :) no more fiddling with a laptop!

32 Teisha Coyour February 27, 2012 at 10:14 am

My girls are both preschool age and would love this for their birthdays coming up :)

33 Cherise February 27, 2012 at 10:22 am

WOW! That looks great. I love tools that make learning fun!!

34 Vassilis Dimitrakis February 27, 2012 at 10:51 am

35 Vassilis Dimitrakis February 27, 2012 at 10:55 am

now!Board! What a fantastic way to work on the interactive board!

36 Erica February 27, 2012 at 10:58 am

Ohhhh what I wouldn’t give to have this in my classroom, or even at home! My preschool sped students could use this in about a hundred different ways and my 5 yr old daughter……if only it didn’t cost an arm and a couple of legs!

37 Erica February 27, 2012 at 10:58 am

Wow! This is really neat. I love all these ways to incorporate technology and still focus on the basics of learning. This looks really easy to use too.

40 Michelle Miller February 27, 2012 at 12:40 pm

I have always wanted a smart board but thought it was too expensive. This looks like plug and play. I would use this to teach my preschoolers math concepts, letter recognition, colors, maps, places I am sure the possibilities are endless.

41 Michelle Miller February 27, 2012 at 12:41 pm

I could use this as a larger than life interactive story book.

42 Michelle Miller February 27, 2012 at 12:43 pm

My son is in a speech and language preschool for his speech delay. Would love to donate this to his school.

47 Lindsay February 27, 2012 at 1:24 pm

Awesome! What a great learning tool! As we hope to home-school our children I see it being used A LOT!

48 Brian February 27, 2012 at 1:28 pm

I learned that Learning Resources is a US based company that was founded in 1984. Their products are available through a variety of local venues.

49 chelsey February 27, 2012 at 1:31 pm

This seems like it has so many possibilities! I like how you pointed out to connect the use of technology into real life, especially with early childhood. I would love to find ways to use it for following directions, early reading skills like phonemic awareness and letter/sound identification and creativity!

50 chelsey February 27, 2012 at 1:32 pm

I ‘liked’ Teach Preschool on Facebook!

51 Fouzia February 27, 2012 at 1:45 pm

This cant be real! It is so compact and so easy to connect to the computer, & no need for slides or markers. This is one mighty tool. I would love to have it so as to teach shapes, colors, world maps, biology, math and what not.

52 Jess Hould February 27, 2012 at 2:24 pm

This is such a neat little gadget! I like this verse the smart boards our public schools use because it is so easy to move. I would use this for my Daycare for everything! Circle time calendar, Many activities we already us a laptop to do online activities which gets to be a pain in the neck when trying to let 4 kids go on the computer at once. The possibilities with this are endless!

53 Jess Hould February 27, 2012 at 2:28 pm

I like the fact that there are so many people who are excited about this idea and its lower in cost than i thought it would be

54 Jess Hould February 27, 2012 at 2:31 pm

I have liked your facebook page for a long time and I think its wonderful how easily i can be distracted from facebook to come to visit your site to learn more about a project i saw there. I love the new ideas that are forever coming! I have so many projects to get to and not nearly enough time. :D Thanks for being such an inspiration.

55 Jennifer Baca February 27, 2012 at 3:02 pm

As a homeschooling mom who also provides childcare for preschoolers, there are just too many different ways we could use this! I already know a perfect wall spot for it too! I would love to use this a lot for the early elementary kids I have right now for their human body unit!

56 Katy McKay February 27, 2012 at 3:19 pm

According to the website, the whiteboard can be used on any flat surface – awesome! Not sure if I would use this with kids, as I am a “screen-free classroom” advocate, but I’d still like to win the $100 gift card! And the interactive whiteboard would be great for giving presentations/workshops to adults!

57 Janae Palet February 27, 2012 at 3:20 pm

I would love to use this in my classroom to engage my prek kids in hands on learning games for math and reading. Our room is fairly small and this would be a great addition that would not be a permanent fixture!

58 Amy Krawchuk February 27, 2012 at 3:21 pm

Please enter us in the drawing, what a wonderful hi-tech tool for the pre-k classroom.

59 Jan February 27, 2012 at 3:26 pm

This looks like it would be great fun to do puzzles as a group. We could adapt many ideas with the NOW board for my preschool class.

60 Verlina February 27, 2012 at 3:59 pm

It’s portable so I can use it in any classroom at school AND take it to use in my preschool sunday school class!
I’m in LOVE!

61 Verlina February 27, 2012 at 3:59 pm

i ‘LIKE’ teachpreschool on FB and have for a while! =)

63 Julie Bowman February 27, 2012 at 5:42 pm

Wow, what a great product. It is not as expensive as the SmartBoard, but just as great! I would love to have one of these in my classroom to keep the children actively engaged in circle time or anytime during the day. Clips can be pulled from educational websites and NOW board has many wonderful programs for early childhood classes. Thanks for making life easier. :)

66 The Listening and Spoken Language Teacher February 27, 2012 at 6:02 pm

I see so many possibilities for using this with my preschool class! We could work on language and vocabulary development with all the great children’s websites that are currently out there.

67 Jv February 27, 2012 at 6:09 pm

This is a great tool that would allow me to teach my 6 & 3 year olds at the same time. It will allow me to teach my children on many subjects without the need to print out and laminate a lot of material. And it will give the kids another form of learning.

I watched the informational video for now!Board. This is wonderful, interactive technology that will allow preschool children to learn in an exciting, new way. I really like how compact and easy to use the equipment is. I believe that will be very attractive to many teachers. The price is also appealing . Thanks for sharing the latest technology with preschool teachers.

LOVE this! Would be so useful in any preschool setting (lg. group, sm. group, self select time). The possibilities are endless. The first thing I would use it for in preschool is a interactive shape recognition center during small group time. I love that you can take snapshots of the children’s creations. So cool!

79 Delores Diel February 27, 2012 at 7:08 pm

This is awesome! We just discussed in a teacher inservice that we need more but can’t afford them. We could afford this with a couple of concession stands! I would love to use this with many things that we do. I have several students that zone-out when we are working on important things. With this now!board, I am sure it would be easier to keep their attention. Also, I play short videos about the letters that we study. All the kids have to sit on the floor in front of my little computer screen and watch. What fun they would have watching on a bigger screen!

80 Delores Diel February 27, 2012 at 7:09 pm

I have ‘liked’ and been in love with your facebook page for about a year. Love the ideas and inspiration.

82 A Cantu February 27, 2012 at 8:48 pm

I could us this now!board to help my hand on learners with our alphabet

90 Tonya February 27, 2012 at 10:11 pm

92 Lora Webster February 27, 2012 at 10:25 pm

I would love to use this for daily calendar and morning routine activities. We have never had a technology like this in our preschool, and I think it could be so beneficial for everyone.

93 Darleen February 27, 2012 at 10:48 pm

Great Idea. I’ve been following most of your ideas and I pass them on to my teachers. It’s like going to a online conference! I am interested in the Now Board as I can see how many functions it could be used for . Back to school night, Spring Open House and of course in one of the Preschool rooms. I am liking it! Hope I win

94 Jeanie February 27, 2012 at 10:58 pm

I would love to use this in the classroom particularly to enhance our circle times. The children would be able to draw pictures to facilitate storytelling, could take turns dragging and dropping items for sorting, and play all sorts of turn-taking games. It also would provide a great attention-focusser for the couple of children we have that are not yet able to sit for more than a couple of minutes at a time. What a great way to strengthen cooperation in our classroom!

95 Jeanie February 27, 2012 at 10:59 pm

I am now an official “liker” of Teach Preschool on Facebook.

97 Phyllis February 28, 2012 at 5:58 am

I am amazed at the ease and low cost associated with the now!Board. Unlike a smart board there is no fixed screen. It would be a great addition to any classroom especially a prekindergarten one! Imagine the possibilities and fun. Shapes, colors, picture slide shows, community, food, science… everything would come to life. Now that is a place where schools can put their money and it would be a savings in the end.

98 Melinda Glen February 28, 2012 at 7:39 am

I have to have one! I’ve wondered for a long time how to get this interactive board technology into my classrooms and now I know how. I know it would be used over and over, day after day in the preschool and PreK classes; this is an incredible incentive for individual and small group learning.
Whoo-hoo!!

99 Stephanie Gatesman February 28, 2012 at 8:21 am

I visited the now!Board website. What a great learning tool for the preschool classroom. I could easily use this tool in my classroom to bring books, songs alphabets and shapes to life! Children could become “the teacher” as they use this neat tool themselves to navigate through a variety of fun and interactive lessons!
 
One things I love the most about the new now!Board , is how small it is, and how easily you could use it on any surface. (As shown on the learning resources website.) I am familiar with the Smart Boards I used in my middle school classroom. The now!Board seems so much more versatile!

This would be a true gift for any pre-school classroom:) I have a class of 12 and several of my students zone out when we are doing a lesson or if its a lesson we have been working on for awhileLetter and sounds). This would give the children who are hands on and cant sit still a way to join in and do activities with their hands. Also with technology children are way more advanced then we are:) Oh my circle time, storytime open houses,games can see the new level it will bring. ooh what you could do:) Love your Blog:)

104 Kara February 28, 2012 at 3:51 pm

I would love to incorporate this into our story times!

105 Stacey Merchant February 28, 2012 at 8:58 pm

I love this idea, and would love to increase the use of technology in my classroom But, as a Head Start teacher I have no where near enough money to purchase this myself and no where near enough in my budget to do this either. I would love to introduce this type of technology in my classroom. How did you get to try one? Was it as your role as a blogger or is Learning Resources product testing? I would love to be a product tester! :)

110 Lilac March 1, 2012 at 9:04 am

Thanks for this giveaway! I love doing things that let my kids move around, so this would be perfect for mixing computer-time with physical activity.

111 Denise O'Banion March 1, 2012 at 11:40 am

So February 29 (leap year) was just full of ironic little moments…one being when I was asking one of Kindergarten teachers here on campus how to help the pre-k kids with the transition to the Kind classroom, without a “smart board”. Public schools used to use overhead projectors, so we at Happy Valley Children’s Center followed suit, got a projector, and helped our kids learn how to use one. But now we have become outdated with the ever changing technology. Well, this wonderful and resourceful teacher, remembered seeing a site that was GIVING AWAY

112 Denise O'Banion March 1, 2012 at 11:43 am

GIVING AWAY a form of technology that we would be forever grateful for!!!!!! We want to embrace the love for technology that children have these days and turn it into a positive learning and teaching tool!!!! PICK ME! PICK ME!!

What i learned is that you can use it anywhere in your classroom so your students can use the board anywhere in the room.

I could use this in my preschool classroom in many ways. Childrn match letters using different games, they can write a story, they can play matching games and the list goes on and on. I really like this new technology of the now board because unlike the smart board it is portable . Several teachers could use it at different times in the day in thier own classroom, unlike a smart board that is big and clumsy like a old fashion chalk board on wheels. The now board is so easy to use even for people that are Technologically Challenged, all you have to do is plug it in and you are on your way. Now I want one now :)

I just love the now board, it is such a great educational tool to help students learn. Students can learn so many things on the board like learning how to count, learning a matching game, thier letters and many other wounderful teaching tools. It is a portable device unlike the smart board which is a heavy board that looks like a old fashion chalk board on wheels. I love the ideal of having a portable interactive board because it can be shared with other teachers, and they would just have to take the device with them to thier room. The device is so easy to use all you have to do is plug it in and it is ready to use. Anyone one can use it even if you are technologically challenged.

This would be an awesome alternative to getting a smart board as my school can’t afford to get one for my classroom. there are so many possibilities with shapes, words, etc! My students would love it!

One way that I would use the now board would be to project e-books such as from Tumble Books onto a wall in my classroom rather than trying to show a book on a laptop. I also like the idea that I could project to whatever height that I would need so my students could reach it comfortably.
