The original article can be found in the book "Teaching English as a foreign language" by Mariane Celce Murcia.


Have you ever seen the film "Minority Report" ? You know that scene when Tom Cruise moves images on a board by using his hands? That imaginary future is here now, with the creation of the interactive Whiteboard. It's so amazing I had a hard time to fall asleep after seeing how it works, and the technology is available in Brazil. So, dear colleagues, get prepared for a new era in teaching, there's no turning back, we better get familiar with this new technology as best as we can. This is a page from Promethean where teachers demonstrate and talk about their experience with the E-BOARD.
