Florida schools use interactive technology in lessons

Some Florida students are using interactive whiteboards to participate in lessons with students from other schools, thanks to a software program that allows for the two-way communication. Each participating classroom is outfitted with a camera so the students and teachers can see each other, and educators say they also are learning new teaching techniques from their colleagues through the interactive technology.
