Edugaming is in the midst of a resurgence. After the initial successes of the 1970s and 1980s, intense competition from console game systems from companies such as Nintendo, Sega and later Sony severely cut into demand for PC-based educational games, which often paled in comparison. As a result, many edugame companies were quickly outpaced and outspent and were either sold, downsized or forced out of business.

When the first analog document cameras were invented in the late 1970,s, they provided an easier way to display documents to a class by using a television screen or video projector instead of overhead projectors and transparency sheets. Today’s digital document cameras are so versatile they are often referred to more accurately as “visual presenters,” because their high-resolution, high-magnification zoom digital cameras, internal memory, full-motion video capture, network connectivity and other features enable much more than documents to be part of a presentation.

Few educational products have reached the level of popularity of interactive whiteboards. An estimated 12 percent of American classrooms use the devices, and the numbers continue to grow. In a survey by the NSBA at the 2008 Technology + Learning conference, school administrators named the interactive whiteboard the device “most useful to support instruction and engage students” by a significant margin over other products, such as laptops, document cameras and audience-response systems.
