Featuring Whiteboards

  1. 1. Professional development - using Elluminate / Blackboard Collaborate whiteboards for student engagement and interaction.<br />This session was facilitated via Elluminate so the interactives were interactive!<br />The virtual room interface is changing with BbCollaborate11. Some functions are accessed differently. However content & “how to” processes are essentially the same. <br />
  2. 2. What would YOU like to “take-away” today?<br />
  3. 3. The session will be led by what YOU want to know & will also include:<br /><ul><li>Particular importance of interactivity in the virtual classroom
  4. 4. Hands on exploration of ideas & examples of whiteboard activities
  5. 5. How to construct interactives for a virtual class environment
  6. 6. Templates, examples and "how tos" that you will be able to access later to help you in making your own activities
  7. 7. Whiteboard tools & whiteboard menu functions
  8. 8. Uploading & formatting your presentations & interactives</li></li></ul><li>Whiteboards – How can you use them? YOUR ideas!<br />

Some ideas for student activities<br />Find & share links<br />Guess the image quiz<br />Rebuses of Industry words/phrases<br />Label the image<br />(drag & drop or type)<br />Brainstorm<br />Matching pairs<br />(drag & drop or join)<br />WordSearch<br />Cloze exercises<br />A glossary<br />WordSearch extensions<br />A gallery<br />Activity briefs & feedback<br />Grouping & <br />categorising<br />Pros & cons <br />arguments<br />Sequencing events<br />
  10. 10. Strategies:<br />Interactivity – every 3-5 slides:<br /> - participant input or activity on whiteboard<br />- poll questions & results on whiteboard<br />- audio or text chat responses to whiteboard content<br />- change of presentation mode – egwbd, appshare, sharing link <br />Use these to compensate for not being able to see if students are paying attention or Facebooking<br />
  11. 11. Who is planning to do something else at the same time as being in this session?<br />BE HONEST  <br />Polling: = Yes = No <br />
