Introducing Marsh’s Integro Interactive Whiteboard

Do you have an interactive whiteboard in your classroom? If not, it’s likely that it’s at the top of your wish list. Teachers who are fortunate enough to have their own interactive whiteboards love the way they engage students and make classroom lessons easier to share. My husband is using an interactive whiteboard in his eighth-grade math classroom for the first time this year and is officially hooked.

One problem educators have with interactive whiteboards is that the board takes up valuable writing space at the front of the classroom. Sometimes when interactive whiteboards are installed, traditional dry erase boards are removed or covered, leaving teachers with fewer options for class participation. Marsh’s new Integro Interactive Whiteboard has a solution for the problem.Marsh Integro Interactive Whiteboard

The Marsh Integro Interactive Whiteboard features a high-quality enamel-on-steel surface that serves as a dry erase writing surface as well as an interactive whiteboard. There’s no need to plan around the installation of your new interactive whiteboard since the Integro board provides up to a 16′ long, seamless writing surface. Marsh partnered with technology leader, mimio® to develop this innovative board right here in the USA. The board is so durable that it comes backed by a life-of-the-building guarantee.

Since the Integro board is capable of recording your lessons, you’ll spend less time writing notes and more time helping students. The recording feature is also valuable in providing notes for absent students.

Interactive Whiteboards Keep Students Engaged

From kindergarten to secondary education, keeping students’ attention is one of the biggest challenges in teaching. With ever-increasing technological advances hitting us in nearly aspect of our lives, it is no wonder children find traditional classroom settings a little boring. Teachers now must relate with kids who spend free time engrossed in texting, Facebook, realistic video games and information on demand.

When 2009 National Teacher of the Year Anthony Mullen spent time traveling across the country visiting other schools, he noticed a classroom tool that helped keep kids, even those with special needs, focus on their lessons. Interactive whiteboards allowed students to participate and engage in lessons in a way they were accustomed to and comfortable with – active learning.

Interactive whiteboards were added to each classroom in Mullen’s Greenwich, Connecticut alternative public high school and the results were just as he had expected. Students – even those with learning and behavioral disabilities – responded enthusiastically as they worked with the new technology.
