It can be useful to check out this list... stop and evaluate the different options out there that shift the weight from teacher to learner. Surely there is a part of the learning objective that could be covered better through a learner centered approach.

INTERACTIVE WHITEBOARDS
An interactive whiteboard (IWB) is a large interactive board that connects to a computer. A projector projects the computer's desktop onto the board's surface where users control the computer using a pen, finger, stylus, or other device. The board is typically mounted to a wall or floor stand.


They are used in a variety of settings, including classrooms at all levels of education, in corporate board rooms and work groups, in training rooms for professional sports coaching, in broadcasting studios, and others.


The first interactive whiteboards were designed and manufactured for use in the office. They were developed by Xerox Parc around 1990. This board was used in small group meetings and round-tables.


The interactive whiteboard industry was expected to reach sales of US$1 billion worldwide by 2008; one of every seven classrooms in the world was expected to feature an interactive whiteboard by 2011 according to market research by Future source Consulting. In 2004, 26% of British primary classrooms had interactive whiteboards. The Becta Harnessing Technology Schools Survey 2007 indicated that 98% of secondary and 100% of primary schools had IWBs. By 2008 the average numbers of interactive whiteboards rose in both primary schools (18 compared with just over six in 2005, and eight in the 2007 survey) and secondary schools (38, compared with 18 in 2005 and 22 in 2007).


Uses for interactive whiteboards may include:


• Running software that is loaded onto the connected PC, such as a web browsers or other software used in the classroom.


• Capturing and saving notes written on a whiteboard to the connected PC


• Capturing notes written on a graphics tablet connected to the whiteboard


• Controlling the PC from the white board using click and drag, mark up which annotates a program or presentation


• Using OCR software to translate cursive writing on a graphics tablet into text


• Using an Audience Response System so that presenters can poll a classroom audience or conduct quizzes, capturing feedback onto the whiteboard


• An interactive whiteboard (IWB) device is connected to a computer via USB or a serial port cable, or else wirelessly via Bluetooth or a 2.4 GHz wireless. In the latter case WEP and WPA/PSK security is available


• A device driver is usually installed on the attached computer so that the interactive whiteboard can act as a Human Input Device (HID), like a mouse. The computer's video output is connected to a digital projector so that images may be projected on the interactive whiteboard surface.


• The user then calibrates the whiteboard image by matching the position of the projected image in reference to the whiteboard using a pointer as necessary. After this, the pointer or other device may be used to activate programs, buttons and menus from the whiteboard itself, just as one would ordinarily do with a mouse. If text input is required, user can invoke an on-screen keyboard or, if the whiteboard software provides for this, utilize handwriting recognition. This makes it unnecessary to go to the computer keyboard to enter text.


• Thus, an IWB emulates both a mouse and a keyboard. The user can conduct a presentation or a class almost exclusively from the whiteboard.


• In addition, most IWBs are supplied with software that provides tools and features specifically designed to maximize interaction opportunities. These generally include the ability to create virtual versions of paper flipcharts, pen and highlighter options, and possibly even virtual rulers, protractors, and compasses—instruments that would be used in traditional classroom teaching.


Interactive whiteboard inside classrooms
In some classrooms, interactive whiteboards have replaced traditional whiteboards or flipcharts, or video/media systems such as a DVD player and TV combination. Even where traditional boards are used, the IWB often supplements them by connecting to a school network digital video distribution system. In other cases, IWBs interact with online shared annotation and drawing environments such as interactive vector based graphical websites.


Brief instructional blocks can be recorded for review by students — they will see the exact presentation that occurred in the classroom with the teacher's audio input. This can help transform learning and instruction.


Many companies and projects now focus on creating supplemental instructional materials specifically designed for interactive whiteboards. Electrokite out of Boston, MA, for example, will have the first complete curriculum for schools and districts.


One recent use of the IWB is in shared reading lessons. Mimic books, for instance, allow teachers to project children's books onto the interactive whiteboard with book-like interactivity.


Dixons City Academy in the North of England was the first non college or university learning environment to make use of interactive whiteboards after the school's then principal Sir John Lewis showed a keen interest in the developing technology. An interactive whiteboard can now be found in every classroom of the school.

32 Characteristics Of High-Performing Classrooms [#Infographic] | #LEARNing2LEARN #ProfessionalDevelopment | Art Teachers Rock | Scoop.it
Instructional design is the strategic creation of learning experiences through intentional planning, sequencing, and data-based revision of learning.

This process includes both the ways content is accessed, and the learning needs and objectives (and how they are determined) themselves.

This puts instructional strategies, literacy strategies, curriculum mapping, standards unpacking, assessment design, digital literacy, and a dozen other facets of education beneath its umbrella.

With that in mind, we’ve created the following 32 characteristics of higher-level instructional planning to help you spot the holes in your teaching.

How To Be a Better Listener

How To Be a Better Listener | Art Teachers Rock | Scoop.it
“Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.” — Stephen Covey

Marisol Espinoza's curator insight, April 2, 10:20 PM
This article came in handy for sure because I have always thought as myself as a good listener, but what made me a good listener? Turns out I could be a better listen just from simple tools from this article provided. Source wasn't bias at all, just gave you the facts on how to become a better listener because everybody wants to be heard, but yet no one ever wants to listen. I was always better at listening and not speaking I never liked to talk. My boyfriend on the other hand is the complete opposite as me. He talks non stop, but listening is not his strong side. Everyone can talk, but very few can actually listen. Being able to be a good listener you can actually connect with people more and start learning about others, even though they are talking about something that may not interest you they still deserve your attention just like you would like their attention. This article was very well thought out and I love how they gave you different sections in the article to help you connect with yourself as to if you are a good listener and if you're not it explained how you can improve.
