Lost our interactive whiteboards - ideas round practical problems please

If you have any.

We've had our whiteboards removed. And they've been replaced by very bright and clear TV screens and apple TVs that are also connected to our class PCs.

BUT.... I am missing being able to write directly on the screen neatly and to annotate work that my PC is displaying.

The ipads have all the right apps, but I can't write neatly on them as I need ot rest my hand on the screen to steady my hand for neat writing, and then it registers that touch instead of the stylus and I can't write.

I'm debating a digital slate thing, but don't know if they are the answer - or where to find one at a reasonable price.

Can you use a whiteboard app on one of the class pcs that is connected to the screen. What you write/type on that pic will then appear on the to as if you were writing it.

We have explain everything on the I pads. But I can't write neatly on it as it's not possible to write and rest my hand on the screen.

We still have the whiteboard programme on the pc and I do use it, but it leaves me tethered to my pic. ... which is across the room to my screen and not at the front of the classroom. And where I would have demonstrated writing for the class I don't have a way of doing it neatly.

My expensive tv screen is covered in my fingerprints from where I've been pointing things out when we are working. smile

Try a piece of paper under your hand, this should stop the screen from recognising yr hand.

Luckily, we still have the standard whiteboards too for writing on. But I'd got used to being able to put up overlays/write on top of pieces of work we were looking at.
