EtherPad : Real Time (text) Collaboration http://etherpad.com/ EtherPad : Real Time (text) Collaboration
Other "real-time" editors like Google Docs work by broadcasting an updated copy of the document to everyone every 15 seconds. This creates a noticeable lag that gets in the way of collaboration. You start editing something, only to find 10 seconds later that someone else deleted it.
Etherpad updates every copy of the document every half second. This 30x increase in speed changes the experience completely. Your edits hardly ever clash with other users'. So you work confidently instead of tentatively.
Why doesn't Google Docs update every half second like Etherpad does? Because it's really, really hard. We're fairly experienced programmers, and to make this work we had to solve problems that, as far as we know, no one had solved before.

Primary IWB report (UK) http://tinyurl.com/2hmjrq The DfES Primary Schools Whiteboard Expansion project
The DfES Primary Schools Whiteboard Expansion project (PSWE) provided substantial funding to 21 local authorities in 2003-04 to support the acquisition and use of interactive whiteboards in primary schools.
The research was carried out between September 2004 and December 2006
Becta highlights the fact that primary pupils can gain 2.5-7.5 months progress (in a period of somewhat over a year) through use of an interactive whiteboard (IWB) in maths, English and science. Rates of additional progress depend on the subject and level of attainment of pupils, with high achieving girls doing better in KS1 maths, while low attaining boys benefited more in KS2 writing.

Health advice on the use of interactive whiteboards http://www.hse.gov.uk/radiation/nonionising/whiteboards.htm Health advice on the use of interactive whiteboards
Computer projectors, which are used to show presentations or to illuminate interactive whiteboards, can expose the eye to levels above one of the exposure limits which HSE uses as a guide for compliance with applicable legislation.
Therefore, although such exposure limits are not statutory, the HSE considers the following advice to be good practice in respect of the use of these projectors by employers in the education sector.
