    Hansens Interactive Bulletin Boards CAST 2007 Hansens Interactive Bulletin Boards CAST 2007 Presentation Transcript

    • Interactive Bulletin Boards Lisa Hansen & Lisa Webber CAST 2007
    • Regular Bulletin Board vs. Interactive Bulletin Key Difference is an Interactive Bulletin Board has a Hands-on Component.
    • Interactive Bulletin Boards Benefit Both Students and Teachers
    • Student Benefits
    • Interactive Bulletin Boards are Student Facilitated
      • Individual students may get stuck on a problem and give up, whereas groups of students tend to keep going.
      • Students become exposed to alternative problem-solving strategies.
    • Learning Pyramid
    • Student Focused Students are much less fearful of generating and answering questions among themselves than individually and directly to the instructor in class. Professor J. Ensign, at Southern Connecticut State University explains that "peer tutoring provides one-on-one attention, immediate feedback, and active learning in a non-threatening environment".   Education 619, Current Issues Affecting Classroom Teachers, Professor J. Ensign. December 11, 2000
    • Practice Makes Perfect Helps retention rate and transfer of knowledge from short term to long term memory.
    • Interactive Bulletin Boards Target Different Learning Styles
      • Auditory, Kinesthetic and Visual
      • What Kind of Learner Are You?

    • Communication Tool
      • Communicates what is happening in the lab or science classroom. Invites INTEGRATION of other Subjects by other teachers.
    • Use of Otherwise Wasted or Down Time Keep the kids busy and keep them out of mischief.
    • Raise TAKS scores In April of 2007, Sanchez Elementary in Houston raised their Science TAKS scores 30%. Although it would be false to attribute this success solely to the use of Interactive Bulletin Boards, it was without a doubt a significant contribution - by keeping the fifth grade students excited and actively involved.
    • Teaches Science to Teachers Teachers gain knowledge in the process.
    • Lead Teacher Requirements Easy way to reach out to the campus.
    • You’re principal will think you’re a genius
    • Setting Up Your Interactive Bulletin Board Setting up Interactive Bulletin Boards can be fun and most of all it is another opportunity to create an engaging, dynamic learning environment for the students.
    • Location, Location, Location Choose a spot for your interactive boards that students visit on a regular basis. Excellent locations include hallways where students line up for lunch and restroom breaks.
    • Reinforce Concepts The boards should be “on topic” and reinforce current concepts that the students are studying in class. Prior knowledge of the concept allows students to interact without teacher facilitation.
    • Expectations It is advisable for teachers to initially establish a protocol about expected behaviors at the board. (taking turns, safety, etc.)
    • Materials The materials you will need to create your bulletin board will vary and depend on the specific objective you are targeting.
    • Tricks of the Trade
      • Keep it simple
      • Keep it lightweight
      • Use Velcro & Double Stick Foam Tape
    • GOOD LUCK! CD Available: Take this presentation back to your campus [email_address] [email_address]
