    1. 1. Interactive Whiteboards <ul><li>Desired Learning Outcomes </li></ul><ul><li>To gain knowledge of types of IWBs available and of the learning promoted by them (according to research) </li></ul><ul><li>To learn how to use the ACTIVprimary software used with Promethean boards </li></ul><ul><li>To access and review the many online resources available on the Internet for IWBs </li></ul><ul><li>STANDARDS </li></ul><ul><li>Know how to use skills in …… ICT to support their teaching and wider professional activities (Q17) </li></ul><ul><li>Use a range of teaching strategies and resources, including e-learning (Q25a) </li></ul>Primary ICT: Creating a Whiteboard Lesson
