Students & Teachers in Asia Pacific Engage Like Never Before With Mobile Interactive Whiteboard and Advanced Student Response System

DENTON, Texas, Feb. 2 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Revolutionizing student learning and classroom interaction, eInstruction(TM), the premier global provider of learning technology, announces the availability of a combined system that will change the way students and teachers in Asia Pacific collaborate in the classroom. The company's exclusive integration of CPSPulse(TM) student response systems and INTERWRITEMobi(TM) mobile interactive whiteboards enables students and teachers to experience enhanced engagement, increased interaction and real-time assessment.

The mobile version of a traditional interactive whiteboard, INTERWRITEMobi supports student-centered, collaborative learning where both teacher and students can concurrently interact with and contribute to the same digital content from team activities to learning simulations to interactive lessons. Mobi is intended to enable individuals or groups of students to provide direct input into a classroom activity without having to go to the front of the room. The devices are ideal for passing around the classroom, creating a high level of participation and student ownership in the learning process.

When used with CPSPulse, an advanced handheld student response device allowing up to 1,000 students per class to answer multiple choice, numeric and short text answers, Mobi's KWIK (Know-What-I-Know) Screen displays individual student answers in real time. This dynamic feature allows those who normally remain quiet in the classroom to actively participate in lessons and enables teachers to privately view every student's answer seconds after the question has been posed. With that knowledge at hand, teachers are empowered to provide differentiated instruction as the lesson unfolds, making sure that each student understands a concept even though their learning styles may differ.

Steve Kaye, CEO of eInstruction commented: "With the increasing focus on how technology can enhance the learning experience, we have developed a mobile solution ideal for managing today's computer-based classroom while providing a new level of student-teacher and student-student interaction. Numerous research studies show that the kind of formative assessment enabled by this technology has the greatest impact on student outcomes."
