Getting Smart About Interactive Whiteboards (Smartboards, Promethean Boards)

  1. 1. Getting Smart about the Real No’s No’sof Teaching with IWBs <br />A photo compilation<br />
  2. 2. Even the IWB Reps Have a Hard Time Getting Smart about Using IWBs<br />Even those who promote the use of interactive whiteboards have a hard time showing how they can be used effectively. <br />Most of the photos in this compilation were taken from an ISTE presentation sponsored by Smart called “The Role of Interactive Whiteboards in a 1:1 Environment.”<br />Use this slide show as a teaching tool for students about what not to do when using IWBs and projectors. <br />Here is a guide to read identifying the The Ten No Nos of Teaching with a Projector or Interactive Whiteboard<br />Identify those you see here. <br />
  3. 3. User is blocking the audience’s view of the board.<br />Back is to the class<br />User is making a shadow<br />
  4. 4. Don’t waste costly projector bulbs by leaving an image on the screen that no one is looking at.<br />Get out of the dark. Class is not a place for lights to be out.<br />No one is looking at the IWB. They don’t need an image left on the screen, they can call it up on their laptops.<br />
  5. 5. The big wigs are here to impart their knowledge.<br />But they all have their backs to the students.<br />Why use an IWB with a laptop in your hand? Just use the laptop and projector and face your audience!<br />Big Wig Back 1<br />Big Wig Back 3<br />Big Wig Back 2<br />Do these students look engaged as a result of the IWB?<br />
  6. 6. Don’t handwrite a number in excel just because your IWB has no keyboard! Type in cells from the laptop so that you can see the magic of excel’s formulas.<br />Does the rest of the class really have to sit around while these students stand blocking the board chatting? Is this the most effective use of time?<br />Or, if this is just a center, why do they need to be up at the huge board writing instead of typing in excel?<br />
  7. 7. The class stares and looks at this student’s back while she’s blocking and maybe talking to the board…not the class.<br />
