Teaching with Interactive Whiteboards

By Megan Power
Grades PreK–K, 1–2, 3–5, 6–8

    Once I received my Promethean Activboard through a grant two years ago, I could never go back to teaching without it. The benefits of using an interactive tool like the Promethean Activboard are tremendous. My teaching has evolved and my young students are progressing and understanding content at an impressive rate. Click to read further and to see a video about how this amazing tool has changed my teaching.

    I have found that my Promethean Activboard has increased interest and enthusiasm for learning. Every student is begging to get a chance to go up to the board to manipulate our flip charts. What does that mean? They are paying attention and want to participate!

    Last year I had some visitors in my classroom where I showed and discussed how my board has helped my teaching. Click the picture below to watch the video!

    I highly recommend teaching with an interactive whiteboard. I am partial to the Promethean Product because it is made for education. The software it comes with is all you need to build years worth of flip charts and lessons. Probably the best part is the online collaboration website Promethean Planet. You can register for free and "borrow" and share hundreds of already made flip charts even if you do not have a Promethean Activboard. The support from the company is amazing. They send out former teachers called TLC's to assist teachers in effectively using their boards with students for FREE!

    In the video, I talked about using the Activotes as a student response system. I will concentrate on these fantastic tools in another blog post. The Activote piece is an important part of my "real time" instruction.

    Don't have the money to purchase one of these amazing boards? Try creating a cheaper version. It has less capabilities but might do the trick!
