Interactive Whiteboard Technology
Whiteboard systems bring technology into the classroom by displaying information and responding to instructor or student input. Whiteboards can be used with either PCs or Macs to create interactive presentations. The portable Now Board Share Main Unit from Learning Resources makes it simple to incorporate a whiteboard system into the classroom because it can be used to create a whiteboard using any flat surface.
Whiteboard Software: Interactive Lessons, Games, and Charts
Whiteboard presentations are recognized for being both clear and dynamic, with appeal to different learning styles. Instructors can shop a variety of software to discover the appropriate learning tool for the subject and level appropriate for their students.
Whiteboard software that features a series of lessons is available, such as the series of math subjects for grades 6-12 offered by Saddleback Educational Publishing. This software makes lesson planning simple by offering lessons that build on each other and providing interactive presentations and practice problems for each. Some interactive whiteboard software also comes with books or other learning tools. The Interactive Book Collection and Rising Readers series by Newmark Learning helps young readers and writers develop skills by encouraging students to interact with both the presentations and their matching books.
Interactive lessons using whiteboards can also engage students through games, practice charts, and other activities. For example, Interactive Learning Reading Games by Teacher Created Resources captures student attention through drag and drop activities related to sorting, matching, and sequencing as language art concepts. Interactive Whiteboard Charts by Daydream Education help students visualize and develop their understanding of topics, including angles and measurements, body organs, tricky words, and computer systems.
