Featuring Whiteboards

  1. 1. Professional development - using Elluminate / Blackboard Collaborate whiteboards for student engagement and interaction.<br />This session was facilitated via Elluminate so the interactives were interactive!<br />The virtual room interface is changing with BbCollaborate11. Some functions are accessed differently. However content & “how to” processes are essentially the same. <br />
  2. 2. What would YOU like to “take-away” today?<br />
  3. 3. The session will be led by what YOU want to know & will also include:<br /><ul><li>Particular importance of interactivity in the virtual classroom
  4. 4. Hands on exploration of ideas & examples of whiteboard activities
