I already use an ACTIVboard in my music classroom in Cincinnati, Ohio and love it! It allows me to easily and effectively create custom lessons in minutes.

I envision custom-made educational programs that teachers can design quickly for their students, edit on the spot, and make easily available for other teachers. It would allow for easy peer review. It would seem like the idea of wiki and open source taken to another level. Teachers could share, promote and change programs at will. Of course, the drive for profits will provide an interesting twist. Read below.eSchool News online - Microsoft previews new development tools
