Why not take class interaction a step further than an interactive whiteboard?  Whiteboard manufacturers also produce response handsets, but they tend to be expensive. The free Microsoft  Mouse Mischief just uses standard wireless mice, plus a USB hub, so you can put together 10 mice and a hub for under £120. There is a glossy Microsoft promo video here, (for some reason, aimed at teachers of young students) but I have also put together a more detailed  11 minute demo and tutorial here.  You will need at least Microsoft Office 2007 for this to work.

Interested? Just google Mouse Mischief and download free. All you need then, as Phil said is a USB hub, some wireless mice, and a knack for asking good questions!

Thanks Phil. I watched your demo - that's a neat product, and worth further exploration. We tried Socrative.com with teachers at SmartVET bootcamp in Arklow the other day, and they liked it a lot. 

Incidentally, which software are you using for the presentation?
