Innovation: Johny Lee and his $40 IWB!

As some of you may know, I’ve always been very keen on innovation in ELT. During my researches last week, I stumbled upon a talk by this guy Johnny Lee on TED.com (which has a myriad of grand downloadable talks in various areas). Lee is a graduate student in the Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. This very charismatic 28-year-old genius  is not an English teacher, but he’s done something which should be especially interesting to us in the Cultura Inglesa circle: transforming a $40 Wii remote into an interactive whiteboard, a touchscreen and a head-mounted 3-D viewer.


I was just wondering whether Steve – being so forward-thinking as we all know he is – would be willing to give it a try!
