The SMART Table is the first multitouch, multiuser interactive learning centre for pupils of all ages. Designed to encourage collaboration/teamwork, discussion and consensus building, the table gives all pupils a gathering place to explore digital lessons. See it in action here
Groups of pupils can simultaneously touch objects on the surface & enjoy a playful kind of learning. The possibilities for fun and teamwork are limitless on the Table - from sliding an elephant across the surface, following a trail of clues, mapping the human body or the map of the world. The Table's interface is so intuitive that pupils can get started on activities quickly & easily.
KEY FACT: The SMART Table can register 80 simultaneous touches! Or put another way 8 pupils can interact together all at the same time!
KEY FACT: Teachers can create their SMART Table activity lessons at home using the SMART Table toolkit.
The SMART Table is designed to stimulate collaboration and teamwork among pupils. It includes learning applications that require pupils to work together on a problem and then come to a consensus before giving their answer.
Pupils are prompted and congratulated with sound and graphic cues as they learn to work as a team.
Multitouch up to 8 pupils at once!
Encourages discussion & communication
The table comes with an ever expanding collection of applications, which provide teachers with ready made activities. The activities help children learn and apply age appropriate skills, such as reading and counting.
Teachers can personalise activities by downloading resources from the SMART Table activities page or by importing their own digital content.

The table is built with pupil's enthusiasm in mind.
Because its durable surface is scratch and water resistant, children can safely lean, bump and jostle as they work.
Teachers, then, can relax and let young pupils get carried away with the enthusiasm for the table - and for collaborative learning.
Withstands up to 91kg!
Fully Mobile Unit
A visualiser (or document camera) is a special video camera designed to display documents and 3-D objects onto a plasma screen, television, projector or monitor. You can connect the document camera to a projector and display onto an interactive whiteboard.
It is called a 'document camera' as you can place documents such as A4 printed handouts, papers, magazines or maps underneath them, so that they are displayed on screen. Overhead projectors do a similar job, but you have to print or photocopy onto acetate (clear plastic) sheets first. Document cameras can also display small objects such as insects, flowers, leaves, coins and watches, which overhead projectors cannot do. You can even position a document camera arm to pick up images of a music teacher playing piano notes, so that students can view on a larger projection screen.
