Definitions for "SmartBoard"
A Smartboard is an electronic white board that is fully interactive. The board is connected to your computer through a serial connection, your computer output is connected to a projector, and that is projected on the board. You now have, in effect, one very large Tablet PC. You can operate your pc from the board (you literally tap the board with your finger to duplicate a mouse click), you can write or draw on the board, and you can print or save your input to the board. You can write a series of notes on the board, and then tap the written text and it is instantly OCR'ed into editable text that can be saved as a file or printed.
