8 Ways To Unlock The Power Of Your Interactive Whiteboard - Edudemic

8 Ways To Unlock The Power Of Your Interactive Whiteboard - Edudemic | eLearning for West Australian School Teachers | Scoop.it
Interactive whiteboards are a great classroom tool. Many teachers use them to project and capture images - basically as a high tech, connected chalkboard.
Darren Smith's insight:

Probably one of the most underutilised resources within modern 'technological' schools; I first experienced one in my 'first year out' in 1999 - I was just 'plonked' in the classroom and told 'use it'. I used it just to project.

The next time was...2013; again no instruction, again 'use it...if you want to'.

I propose the majority of teachers to not effectively utilise the multimodal powers of an IWB, because they simply do not intuitively know how. there's the rub, 'intutively'; class room practioners are so often 'flying by the seat of their collective pants' under pressure, they fall back on what they intuitively 'know'....and IWB's are not 'intuitively known' by the majority.

 

Solution???
