Teaching With Interactive Whiteboards
- Grades: PreK–K, 1–2, 3–5, 6–8, 9–12
Interactive whiteboards are large presentation tools that work with a projector and a computer to allow educators to create dynamic lessons. How can you get the most out of this powerful technology? The first step is to not think of it as an updated chalkboard. Rather, look at how you can use the board to have students collaborate on writing or solving problems. Display film clips with a touch of your finger, or take students on an interactive tour via the Web.
See below for tips on choosing the right tool and case studies about how other educators are using their interactive whiteboards.
