Transcript

  • 1. Ucan do IWB’s Tips for the newbie Interactive Whiteboard User
  • 2. The Board: Hardboards <ul><li>Promethean boards use this technology </li></ul><ul><li>The board has a circuit within the board </li></ul><ul><li>It requires the use of a pen to work </li></ul>
  • 3. The Board: Ultrasonics <ul><li>Mimio boards use this technology </li></ul><ul><li>The Mimio pen sends out ultrasonic and infra-red signals which are picked up by the sensor bar </li></ul><ul><li>It requires the pens to operate </li></ul>
  • 4. The Board: Resistives <ul><li>SMARTBoards and Teamboards use this technology </li></ul><ul><li>A membrane is laid over a hard printed circuit </li></ul><ul><li>It can be operated with a pen or finger </li></ul>
  • 5. Use the Students <ul><li>The best resource in the room are the students who view the board like a hawk each day waiting for the teacher to slip up </li></ul><ul><li>Get them to show off by explaining how to do things </li></ul><ul><li>Ask them to be your scribe </li></ul><ul><li>Have a reward for the best IWB tip of the day from a student </li></ul>
  • 6. Get Calibrated <ul><li>To get started on any IWB you need to make sure that the pen or input tool makes a mark at the tip of the tool. This is called calibrating the board </li></ul><ul><li>If you write and the writing appears somewhere else on the board then you need to calibrate the board </li></ul><ul><li>Each board has it’s own method for calibrating. Other teachers or students should be able to help to learn to calibrate your board </li></ul>
  • 7. Write Big Everywhere <ul><li>The IWB allows you to shrink your work and move it all round the board </li></ul><ul><li>It also allows you to write over everything else on the board </li></ul><ul><li>Be bold, use this functionality to add content and move it to where you want and at what size to place it </li></ul>
  • 8. Use the Undo Button <ul><li>Unlike traditional whiteboards where you erase your mis-thoughts the IWB allows you a second chance at everything </li></ul><ul><li>Using Undo, (usually a backwards facing arrow is much quicker and more accurate than using the eraser even though the IWB has one of these too) </li></ul>
  • 9. Use The Pages <ul><li>Unlike traditional whiteboards you don’t need to erase the work on the board to fit more on </li></ul><ul><li>Dependent on the IWB, you just need to add a page or flipchart for that next bit of work </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t forget that you can just as quickly flip back and forth between the pages or flipcharts to remind the little darlings what you have really covered </li></ul>
  • 10. The Bigger Picture <ul><li>All IWB’s have a gallery of images and interactives that can be used to make even the most basic page attractive </li></ul><ul><li>Take some time, (or get a student to explore for you), these galleries </li></ul><ul><li>Remember too that you can always “Search” the galleries </li></ul>
  • 11. Hit The Net <ul><li>No matter what you are talking about in class you are sure to be able to find something related to the topic on the internet </li></ul><ul><li>Displayed on the IWB you can then draw all over or annotate these sites, (heck you can even copy and paste from them) </li></ul><ul><li>Oh it also works on DVD’s too and you can even use the IWB capture tool to grab the evidence </li></ul>
  • 12. Get Things Straight <ul><li>With an IWB you never need rulers again, just look out for the line tool and use it to draw your straight lines </li></ul><ul><li>Oh if you want to keep in shape then look no further than the IWB to be able to draw the perfect shape for you </li></ul>
  • 13. Clones Rule <ul><li>Once you have created an object, written a phrase or made a sound on the IWB you can clone it as many times as you wish </li></ul><ul><li>This is great for maths work or literacy stems or pictorial presentations </li></ul>
  • 14. Don’t Be A Tool <ul><li>Within the gallery as well as neat images and animations you will also find some great tools just crying out to be used such as; </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Rulers </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Timers </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Dice </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Calculators </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  • 15. Layer It On Thick <ul><li>All IWB’s work in layers with each input be it pen, text, image etc having their own layer </li></ul><ul><li>Content can be moved up and down between layers which enables you to display or hide things </li></ul><ul><li>When needed content can be locked in position </li></ul>
  • 16. Update Your Image <ul><li>IWB’s are great for visual literacy and digital cameras are everywhere </li></ul><ul><li>Digital microscopes make the invisible visible </li></ul><ul><li>Visualisers and webcams enable everyone to see </li></ul><ul><li>Everyone can manipulate their image, online or offline </li></ul><ul><li>Go Flickr </li></ul>
  • 17. Get With Community <ul><li>Each of the major players have online community spaces for sharing things </li></ul><ul><li>Other support groups exist </li></ul><ul><ul><li>IWBnet </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Interactive Whiteboard Challenge </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Interactive Whiteboard Revolution </li></ul></ul>
  • 18. Don’t Get Flustered <ul><li>Every novice IWB user has those moments when it would definitely have been much easier to have just told the students what to do </li></ul><ul><li>Be re-assured that the time you take to come to grips with these infernal devices is time well spent </li></ul><ul><li>Use the age old adage and just count to ten, some dear little student will have figured it out by then </li></ul>
  • 19. An IWB Won’t Make You A Better Teacher
