A Very Interactive Classroom!

I’ve been hearing a lot of chatter about the new phenomena in the classroom…. Interactive Whiteboards!  Although I’ve had the pleasure of being in a classroom, where a professor used something similar to the interactive whiteboard, I really did not pay attention to the importance or positive effects of these new classroom pets.  Of course, I know, now why interactive whiteboards have taken k-12 classrooms by storm. Teachers love them, children want to play with them, and schools that don’t have them, want them. These boards are the new innovative white/chalk board. They allow teachers to present content in various connecting and engaging ways. Teachers can record their instruction and post the material for review by students at a later date. Click the link below to view a list of ways to use Interactive Whiteboards in the Classroom:

Whiteboards are Phenomenal Tools!

Whiteboards can also be a very good tool for students who have learning disabilities, students that are absent, and students who like repetition. If you do not know what an interactive whiteboard is, you may recognize some of  the brand names: SMART Board, ActivBoard, eBeam, Mimio, and Webster are some of the most widely used at this time. Interactive whiteboards can be used for all grade levels and I patiently await the day I can use one. There are even sites that have lesson plans specifically for Interactive Whiteboards; I have listed five below!

Using Interactive Whiteboards  are another great way in which teachers can integrate Technology in their classroom. If you get a interactive whiteboard it is very important that you use it effectively and in it’s full use  because otherwise you will be wasting either the school’s or your money and time. You should not use these boards as mere projectors, but to really engage the students. I have posted a couple of video’s that I’ve found on how and why the Interactive Whiteboards are being used….Enjoy!
