IWB’s – are we using them the best way we can?

Interactive whiteboards should be just that – interactive. A place where teachers can call upon students to come to the front and have a go at using the touch screen or the touchscreen pen to physically manipulate the resource available on the screen.

However, all to often that ‘Interactive’ part seems to fall by the waste-side and the touchscreen becomes nothing more useful than an ordinary whiteboard for project images upon.

In order to make sure I don’t fall into this peril of using an IWB as a replacement tool for an OHT I have begun to compile some resources I can use when I get into my own classroom. The possibilities really are endless if you are willing to look!

TeachHub has some fantastic resources. As does IdealResources (if you don’t mind the membership fee).

Happy hunting!!
