Interactive white boards

  2. 2. Brief History of Chalkboards and Their Usage for Instructıon <ul><li>The earliest blackboards cannot properly be called as chalkboards , as there was no chalk involved. </li></ul><ul><li>They were simply small pieces of slate , and instead of chalk children would use another smaller piece of slate to write on the board. </li></ul><ul><li>Marks would be erased with a simple rag in order for the student to move onto the next problem. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>In late 18th and early 19th century , such sladeboards were commonly used in schools in the U.S.A and other countries. </li></ul><ul><li>These small pieces of slate would be bound in a wooden frame to help strengthen the board and keep them from cracking. </li></ul><ul><li>James Pillans , Headmaster of Old High School of Edinburgh is widely credited for inventing the blackboard and colored chalk which he used to teach geography. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Mr. George Baron , an instructor at West Point Military Academy , is considered to be the first American instructor to incorporate the use of a large black chalk board into presentation of his math lesson. </li></ul><ul><li>Then , the benefits of chalk and blackboards became clearly apparent. </li></ul>
  5. 5. INTERACTIVE WHITEBOARDS <ul><li>A large interactive display that is connected to a computer or projector. </li></ul><ul><li>A projector projects the computer’s desktop onto the boards surface where users control the computer using a pen, finger or other devices. </li></ul><ul><li>The board is typically mounted to a wall or floor stand. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>They are used in many schools as replacement for traditional whiteboards or flipcharts. </li></ul><ul><li>They provide ways to show students anything which can be presented on a computer’s desktop. </li></ul><ul><li>Interactive whiteboards allow teachers to record their instruction and post the material for review by students at a later time. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>This can be a very effective instructional strategy for students who benefit from repetition , who need to see the material presented again for students , who are absent from school , for struggling learners and for review examinations. </li></ul>
  9. 9. 1. Touch-based Whiteboards <ul><li>Touch-based digital whiteboards use resistive technology that allows the user to send signals from the whiteboard to the computer through simple touch, either by a finger, a stick or some pointing device. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>They also have the advantage of allowing the digital whiteboard to be used with a dry-erase marker, like any ordinary whiteboard, thus saving valuable space and resources in school classrooms. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Pen-Based Whiteboards <ul><li>Pen-based interactive whiteboards use electromagnetic technology that interacts with a specially designed pen or stylus to send signals from the whiteboard to the computer. </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>Unlike the touch-based whiteboards, the pen-based devices will respond to a finger or a point stick but will only work with the specific stylus, which is often seen as a disadvantage because of the increased cost associated with the electronic pen </li></ul><ul><li>The advantage of the pen-based whiteboard is the added precision that the stylus provides, which cannot be achieved with the finger. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Portable Ultrasonic Whiteboards <ul><li>Portable ultrasonic whiteboards consist of a bar that is secured to an existing non-digital whiteboard or an older interactive whiteboard system. </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>They require minimal installation and can work with an existing whiteboard (or even a wall), thus making them a feasible solution for schools with small budgets </li></ul>
  15. 15. Ways to Use Interactive Whiteboards in the Classroom <ul><li>Save lessons to present to students who were absent </li></ul><ul><li>Create video filesto teach a software application , a lesson or as a review to be posted to the server or web. </li></ul><ul><li>Present presentations created by students or teacher </li></ul><ul><li>Brainstorming </li></ul>
  16. 16. <ul><li>Have students create e-folios including samples of their work and narration </li></ul><ul><li>Creating a project calendar </li></ul><ul><li>Teaching vocabulary </li></ul><ul><li>Use highlighter tool to highlight nouns , verbs , adjectives …etc </li></ul>
  17. 17. How to Effectively Use the Whiteboards to Facilitate Discussions <ul><li>A whiteboard with multiple colored markers and a whiteboard eraser are an effective means to facilitate a discussion </li></ul><ul><li>The first challenge is to keep the meeting focused on its objectives and the desired outcomes. While you may have informed the participants of them beforehand and also presented this at the beginning of the meeting, the first action you want to take is to write these on the whiteboard before the meeting starts. By doing this, if and when the meeting gets distracted, point back to the objectives to get the meeting back on track. </li></ul>
  18. 18. <ul><li>The second challenge in these meetings is to capture all the points discussed and to consider them all in finalizing the outcome. Discussions are normally unstructured and there is a tendency for people to ramble. As points are being made, capture each of them on the whiteboard. </li></ul>
  19. 19. <ul><li>If there is insufficient space, then use the lower part of the left half of the whiteboard. Leave some space under the meeting objectives </li></ul><ul><li>The whiteboard with multiple colored markers and the eraser can significantly improve your role as a facilitator. It typically also leaves the participants with a feeling that all their input has been considered. </li></ul>
  20. 20. <ul><li>When having discussions, multiple topics will be discussed. Each topic may have a few points. Use the right half of the board to capture these. The trick here is not to capture points from top to bottom for all the topics. Instead, after writing down a new topic, leave some space before writing the next topic. This way, you can capture the points for each topic under their respective headings. </li></ul>
  21. 21. <ul><li>Imagine the whiteboard as two halves, left and right. At the top of the left half, write the objectives of the meeting before it begins. Use this to present the objectives at the start of the meeting and to bring the discussion back on track if it strays from the objectives. </li></ul>
  22. 22. The Advantages of Interactive Whiteboards <ul><li>1. Improved Learning </li></ul><ul><li>While some students and employees are auditory learners, absorbing information efficiently through the spoken word, others are visual learners. Interactive whiteboards give people the opportunity to absorb information in multiple formats. This helps increase retention and synthesis of information </li></ul>
  23. 23. <ul><li>2. Increased Participation </li></ul><ul><li>Interactive whiteboard images can be saved and printed, so students or employees do not have to take notes during the discussion. This allows them to participate in the learning or collaborative session at a more focused, engaged level. </li></ul>
  24. 24. <ul><li>3. Collaboration </li></ul><ul><li>By integrating an interactive whiteboard into your learning or office environment, you can encourage participants to collaborate in a shared work area. This allows students or employees to become part of the process, rather than simply recipients of prepared information </li></ul>
  25. 25. <ul><li>4. Improved Feedback </li></ul><ul><li>Team members and students can provide immediate feedback via interactive controls that they can use to ask and answer questions about the material being presented. This allows the manager or instructor to quickly identify areas of confusion. </li></ul>
  26. 26. Effect of Interactive Whiteboard on Learning and Motivation <ul><li>Since it makes use of audio and visual techniques at the same time, it affects learning process in many ways. This helps in engaging the whole group for the particular activity whether it is a class for students . Thus the learning because of this interactive process is very strong and goes in the long term memory of our brai </li></ul>
  27. 27. <ul><li>Another important thing is that the whiteboards are seen as being amazingly helpful for the learning process of visually impaired people and disabled people. For visually impaired people they are beneficial because as the people are not able to see properly, by making use of the big size of things shown on the screen, they can understand things easily and hence their studies become easier. For disabled people it is beneficial because those people are not able to understand things in one go. Therefore the teachers can show them things or objects till the time they are able to recognize them easily as everything can be saved in the computer. Hence proves to be quite a useful tool. </li></ul>
  28. 28. <ul><li>The whiteboard also motivates people to learn things and join discussions as they are put up in interesting ways and everybody can have many things to support their views as they can search results online. </li></ul><ul><li>Thus it can be said that whiteboard use can change the whole system and helps a person to grow individually and also helps in development of a country as a whole. </li></ul>
