Has anyone connected one of these systems to use with the board? I know it's not your typical 'educational' question - but I had heard that it could be done and thought it may be a good incentive for my students to work toward.
You can connect your Wii or PS2 or any game consule to your projector by hooking the red, white, and yellow cables into the input of the projector. However, this will just display your game on the SMARTBoard and you are not actually using the SMARTBoard's interactive features but using the SMARTBoard just to project on.
As a School Nurse looking for ways students to promote student and staff exercise, I secured funding for a Nintendo Wii Fit system. I hooked up the Wii to a SmartBoard to do an exercise club after school. I just used the cables from the Wii with the red,yellow, and white tips, and found the corresponding input on the lower right-hand side of the Smartboard. I used double sticky tape to place the Wii sensor bar just above the Smartboard and BAM, it worked. The students had fun and a good workout. There were some math games involving movement that would appeal to younger students. I was unable to use the Internet on my Wii due to school policy, but that could add another dimension.
