MPG:
Thanks enormously for posting that link to Henri Picciotto's response to the (igno)rant by Bill Ferriter "Why I Hate Interactive Whiteboards". (MPG's posting is pasted in full below my signature).
And thanks even more for bringing Mr Picciotto to our attention  his teaching work and his blog are terrific, in my opinion. I plan to study all of his work in detail. I'd strongly recommend that all of us  and in particular the "mathematically correct" amongst us  should check him out for some very sound thinking on mathematics education.
See: http://www.mathedpage.org/ http://www.mathedpage.org/urban/urbanmath.html http://www.mathedpage.org/resume/index.html http://www.mathedpage.org/newalgebra/newalgebra.html http://www.mathedpage.org/attc/index.html (and so on).
