The other issue you might look into with SmartBoards is that they will be going to a subscription based system for their software.  Right now it is free with your product but any future updates or add-ons will be subscription model.

9 Scaffolding Steps For Deeper Understanding Infographic

1. Ask a question
What do you know about ants?

2. Present a mystery for students to solve
How does an ant carry 50 times its body weight? Can you?

3. Ask students to draw what they know
Can you draw how you think ants carry things? How do you carry things?

4. Give students ample time to research the mystery
Can you find the answer and bring it back to class?

5. Ask students to draw the mystery and the solution again
Can you draw that for me?

6. Ask students to share with other students
Can you explain your drawing to each other?

7. Ask students to pull all their ideas together into one drawing
Can you use all of your ideas together to solve the mystery?

8. Teacher patiently asks ‘what if’ questions
What if I have an apple on my desk? How will the ant carry it? Do you carry it differently? Why?

9. If students need more information, send them back to step 4, and start over until the objective or outcome is reached.

I highly encourage you to check:  Scaffold like an ant – a simple scaffolding example by Mia MacMeekin

The infographic in the link is quite engaging. Visuals help with organization of information, and they can create associations that might be more difficult to convey in text. However, it depends on your goal.

The Neomam site is geared toward sales, and the portfolio indicates that it is effective. However, as an educator, it has limits especially regarding actual analysis of information. It has some limits and accuracy issues that naturally come when someone else is synthesizing the information for the reader. For example you state, "People remember 80% of what they see and do." That is generally true, but looking at an infographic is not the same as "doing" in this context.
