SMART Slate enables teachers and students to interact with digital lessons projected on a screen, an interactive whiteboard, an interactive display, or an interactive pen display from anywhere in the classroom. SMART Slate charges via the USB cable and supports 10 languages. The addition of a third programmable button enables customization, and the eraser function on the battery-free, tethered pen makes annotating with digital ink even more intuitive than it was on the WS100.www.smarttech.com
