COLUMBIA, Md. — July 2, 2007 —Interwrite Learning is announcing today that Rye Neck Union Free School District (UFSD) has standardized on Interwrite Board interactive whiteboards and Interwrite Pad Bluetooth? wireless pads. All Kindergarten through 12th grade classrooms are outfitted with the Interwrite Boards and Pads, including all special education classrooms. Interwrite Learning´s solutions allow Rye Neck UFSD to stay on the cutting edge of technology and to continue its reputation as a high-performing district.

The Interwrite Board is a large, durable, and easy-to-use interactive whiteboard that features the impressive Interwrite Workspace Software. It turns classroom lessons into interactive experiences. The Interwrite Pad is the first interactive wireless pad for the classroom, and it gives teachers the ability to teach from anywhere in the classroom. They can interact with their computer or with a connected projector from up to 300 feet away. Using electromagnetic pen-input technology and Interwrite Workspace Software, teachers can use the Pad or Board to digitally annotate over a prepared lesson, web site, or any software program to create then deliver interactive and engaging lessons.

For the past five years, Rye Neck UFSD has been using Interwrite Learning´s technology in every classroom throughout the school. The Boards and Pads allow teachers to improve the effectiveness and flexibility of their lessons. They can change the focus of their lessons in minutes with this technology and further improve student retention of lessons.

"Interwrite Learning has provided us with the perfect tools to enhance the learning experiences of both our teachers and students, while also helping them to stay on top of modern technology," said Dr. Peter Mustich, Superintendent of Rye Neck UFSD. "What started off as a pilot program for the technology quickly transitioned to every classroom being equipped with the Boards and Pads in a very short period of time. Once we implemented Interwrite Learning´s solutions into a few classrooms, every teacher in our district was eager to begin utilizing the technology in their lessons."

The Interwrite Boards and Pads have greatly increased interaction among students, which has also improved their motivation for learning. With the Interwrite system, the web becomes a resource for teachers when planning lessons. They can take their lessons home to work on them and bring them back to class the next day. Rye Neck UFSD administrators continue to implement the technology in their classrooms because they believe there would be a deficit in their lessons without the new technology.

"By incorporating Interwrite into every classroom in the district, every student at Rye Neck UFSD has access to the same technology that is increasingly becoming a key aspect of twenty-first century learning," said Steve Kaye, co-president and chief operating officer of Interwrite Learning. "With Interwrite Learning´s interactive classroom solutions, teachers are able to connect with every child, no matter what lesson they are teaching or software program they are utilizing."
