Interactive white boards

02 March 2014.

I found this website which I thought I would share as it has some great links and information about interactive white boards (ITW).  During my last three practical experiences all classrooms that I worked in had ITWs however they were not being used to their full potential.  One teacher informed me that the one in her classroom was not working properly and she was waiting on an IT person to come and take a look at it.  The other classrooms I attended, the teachers did not know how to use them in an interactive way.  They could connect their laptop to the ITB and allow students to view things they could run on their laptop for example a youtube clip or a powerpoint presentation but that is as far as it went.  To have these types of resources in the classroom and not use them to enhance students learning and engagement seems to be not only a waste of money but more importantly a waste of a great tool. Please click on following link or the picture below, both will take you to, The University of Sydney (2014), where you will find on the webpage numerous links to other great pages that can help increase understanding and knowledge of how to get the most of an IWB.
