Making the Most of Your Time With an Interactive Board
It isn’t uncommon for a school to have an interactive board on hold for teachers to check out. I applaud any school that is putting technology like this in the hands of teachers in any way they can. Typically though, teachers seldom venture to check it out. Why? Is it too cumbersome to lug down to your room and set up? Lack of time with the software? Or maybe it’s a lack of knowing what exactly can be done with one in a short span of time.
How do you spend your short time with a board in these situations? What tips do you have to offer for those that will help a teacher quickly put one to use in their room before it has to be given back. Hit up the comments and send us your best tips. Maybe you prefer using videos like those provided by Discovery Streaming and BrainPOP, and you simply pause them at key points to write up questions and have the students come up and write their answers. Or maybe you use them to showcase fun interactive games. Regardless, give us your best in the comments!
