  • However- this year- we’ve found expression. Last year I was sitting where you were. Since then Been using it for a year, in a limited way- can’t afford in all rooms, yet, but the potential it has shown over the last year is immense the things it can do which are hard or impossible to do in other ways can’t be overlooked- - So- I’m Not an expert on the technology yet, but will Describe the year- good, bad, brilliant of Interactive technologies- the questions we have been asking ourselves as educators, cant promise solutions, but I can certainly show you opportunities.

    1. 1. Alison Lydon<br />The Role of Interactive Technologies in Teaching <br /> and Learning<br />
    2. 2. Me<br /><ul><li>Head of ICT
    3. 3. Been in education for 15 years
    4. 4. Have seen a great increase in technologies over these years</li></li></ul><li>Why I love Interactive Whiteboards<br /><ul><li>Fun
    5. 5. Visual
    6. 6. Engages pupils
    7. 7. Personalised learning
    8. 8. Different learning styles
    9. 9. Enthuses teachers
    10. 10. Reduce workload
    11. 11. INTERACTIVE</li></ul>The learning should drive the technology, the craft of teaching is vital<br />
    12. 12. Interactivity…some thoughts…<br /><ul><li>Manipulate text in new ways; (highlight, change colour, magically reveal) Use the pen on maps, images etc.</li></ul>• Move/drag objects, edit and add objects to the page whilst teaching.<br />• Make the most of the infinite pages and space- hang text and images off the side of the page to avoid<br />cluttering the space, enjoy revisiting the pages in any order you want to.<br />• Use layers to show, hide and reveal answers to engage the pupils and save time.<br />• Add media such as images, sound effects, video etc to excite, motivate, encourage thoughts and feelings<br />• Link to web sites, to enrich the pupil experience<br />• Link to worksheets and presentations for enrichment, support or extension activities,<br />• Capture pupil attention and maintain focus with tools such as the spotlight, camera, revealer.<br />• Display and explore clear, accurate diagrams; label, resize etc explore detail with the magnifying glass.<br />• Model abstract ideas- rotation of shapes, perspective, time zones, capturing sections of video, short<br />episodes of animation or video.<br />• Use tools such as the ruler, protractor, calculator, fraction generator to demonstrate skills, and<br />demonstrate concepts<br />• Use colours and backgrounds to help dyslexic readers, or to engage the audience.<br />• Collaborative with pupils to make lists, poems, answers which they have shared ownership of.<br />
    13. 13. Last year I found a new tool to develop the use of the IWB even further.<br />ActivExpressions<br />
    14. 14. How to use ActivExpressions<br />
    15. 15. My Journey<br />From SLF 2008 to SLF 2009<br />Bought Expressions<br />Trialled with chemistry dept<br />
    16. 16. April 2009- Primary 4<br />I wanted to see <br /><ul><li>Could Primary 4 children cope with texting
    17. 17. How noise, concentration and motivation levels were affected
    18. 18. If the devices were versatile
    19. 19. How easily teachers could use the equipment

    91. 91. Good teaching is about listening, questioning, being responsive, and remembering that each student and class is different. It&apos;s about eliciting responses and developing the oral communication skills of the quiet students. It&apos;s about pushing students to excel; at the same time, it&apos;s about being human, respecting others, and being professional at all times. Richard Leblanc, 1998<br /><br />
