Building on Canson's successful Papershow technology, Papershow for Teachers takes interactive presentation tool and digital whiteboard technology to a new level by adding functions and features designed especially for
Now teachers can write from anywhere in the classroom, display lessons instantly on a computer screen or board, add color to their lessons, hide and reveal information, and focus attention on specific points.
By tapping buttons on the printed toolbar, teachers can change colors, change shapes, or even pull up graphics or draw shapes on the screen. An extended toolbar allows them to pull up a virtual calculator on the screen, and even draw an angle and then ask the software to calculate exactly what it is.
Lessons can be prepared in advance, saved, and displayed at a later time. What's more, at the end of the lesson, class notes can be saved on the included USB key, reopened at a later date, amended as needed, and immediately shared with the class.
