I want to order this whole set from Vol. 1 -Vol. 10. Do you have to have a smart board to use the volumes. I have a PC and projector? I'm a first year teacher and looking for engaging material.

Best Answer: I own many of the volumes and have used them on both SMART and Promethean platforms. The newer volumes that are multi-platform would work for you without the hardware-related software; they run on Adobe. The older ones that are SMART/Promethean specific would require you to download the software, although you don't need an interactive whiteboard to use the Interactive Now volumes.
