No more chalk-talk, now it's Java tech-enabled boards instead

The chalkboard in schools is obsolete--same goes for the whiteboard. Now there is the Java technology-enabled SMART board that lets teachers project interactive computer screens that are touch-sensitive so that students can learn on-the-fly with help from Java technology.

Java Jazzes Up the Classroom Chalkboard

Here's a quote:

 Korte said the possibilities for 
 instruction are endless. "In my 
 mind, the boards let me turn the 
 math classroom into a lab.  I can 
 introduce things like color, 
 detailed diagrams, animated Java 
 applets that change before the 
 kids' eyes."
Heck, if Mrs. Tattinger (my junior high math teacher) had one of these babies, I think honors trig would've been a lot more interesting... either that or having more cheerleaders in the class.
