 SMART Technologies announced a new education list price of $2,499 for its SMARTBoard interactive electronic whiteboard. This $500 discount off the regular SRP applies to all K-12 and post-secondary institutions, including technical and continuing education programs. 

The SMARTBoard ships with a pen tray, four dry-erase markers, four colored styluses, one dry eraser, drivers (Mac or Windows), plus WriteBoard software, for saving and printing notes. By adding an LCD projector, an instructor can press on the whiteboard to control any software application or draw in electronic ink on top of projected computer images.
