Mrs. Nardone sent information out about our Smartboards responsing to touch sensitivity. What this means is that you can be holding the pen and erase or move things with the other hand. It's nice because you do not have to set the pen down or select the eraser if you want to get rid of something. Depending on how hard you push and how much of your hand you use, you can activate the pointer or the eraser.
Here is a powerpoint that will explain how to turn it on for your Smartboard. If you have any questions, drop me a line and I will help.
