  6. 6. HOW DO INTERACTIVE WHITEBOARDS FIT? • Projector • Touch Screen (can swipe) • Physical representation of whiteboard – Coloured Pens – Eraser • SAMR: – Substitution / Augmentation of existing activity.
  8. 8. EXISTING ACTIVITIES • Substitution: – Displaying web resources – Displaying a PowerPoint – Same as using a projector • Augmentation: – Annotation – Direct manipulation of resources – But same as using a acetates/blackboard/whiteboard in 1990s/2000s?
  10. 10. HOW DO INTERACTIVE WHITEBOARDS FIT? • Interactivity – Visual Explanations – Encourage participation (annotate sections activity) – Explain and embellish in PowerPoint • SAMR: – Augmentation of existing activity. – Modification/Re-Design of existing activity.
  11. 11. HOW DO INTERACTIVE WHITEBOARDS FIT? • Flipped-Classroom-Interactivity – Visual Explanations – created in a session – Could be used in a small group or seminar – Lecture more about understanding than knowledge transmission • SAMR: – Augmentation of existing activity. – Modification/Re-Design of existing activity.
  12. 12. OVERVIEW of TOOLS • SMARTBoard Software Enables: – Annotation of any content on-screen – Highlighting of content (Spotlight and Magnifier) – Creation of text or annotations to be saved in a Word document (InkAware) – Creation of text or annotations to be saved in a PowerPoint document (InkAware) – SMART NoteBook – save a record / specific interactions
  13. 13. BENEFITS - SUMMARY • Interactivity which facilitates active learning, not just passive reception of information. • Accessibility for learners with visual or • physical impairment. • Recordability information created can be emailed, stored for subsequent re-use, or deconstructed to analyse a process Adapted from JISC Interactive Whiteboard Guide
  14. 14. THOUGHTS • Always start thinking about the educational objectives / aims rather than the tech (SAMR helps). • Could this be used to enhance / augment some of your existing sessions? • It might work really well for just one certain situation - that’s great. • Be willing to give things a try…
  15. 15. YOUR THOUGHTS • Have you got any ideas or motivations for use?
  16. 16. ACTIVITY – 15 mins. • Think of a concept or idea from your specific discipline or area • How could you use an Interactive Whiteboard to enhance its explanation? (Diagram/Group Collaboration/…) • Let’s give this a go now, together!
  17. 17. QUESTIONS?
