  10. 10. Working on a whiteboard is <br />like conducting a symphony. <br />You're bringing in <br />drag-and-drop <br />collaborative writing and problem solving activities, <br />then cueing up a film clip or <br />bringing in the <br />Internet to do research. <br />There are many <br />seemingly disparate <br />functions and features, <br />that when used together, <br />create a holistic lesson.<br />http://www2.scholastic.com/browse/article.jsp?id=10621<br />http://www.soulful-song.org/<br />
  11. 11. We unplug our students, believing that laptops, iPods, cell phones, and even whiteboards have <br />no real place in <br />teaching the three Rs. <br />As a result, students fail to see the relevance of their education as they judge the delivery <br />and not the content. <br />http://connected.waldenu.edu/index.php/blogs/35-policy-matters/536-interactive-whiteboards-uneven-learning.html<br />
