The students I tutor prefer using a whiteboard over pen and paper. A whiteboard is easy to erase, so mistakes disappear with a quick swipe; there are no lingering reminders of the errors. I had the chance to play with this combination television/tablet/whiteboard last night and I am impressed. It links to your device (tablet, phone, etc.) and to your apps like Evernote, and it can be used as a really fun, interactive whiteboard. It makes practicing writing entertaining! If you’re looking for a new television this holiday season, you might want to check this one out. Here is a video review of it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RpLQUotlLuw
