What’s an interactive website? Typically, it’s one that’s based on Flash-based “applets” that works well on an interactive white board. This post is for teachers who use Promethean boards.
If you have a favorite list of websites for use on an interactive whiteboard (or even one favorite) leave it in the comments!
On Tuesday, I worked with teachers at BES on learning about the iOS devices just delivered to their schools. We looked at the ebook I published here on my blog, explored some apps, and I answered questions for teachers
Then it was on to GMS to check-in with Bea, leading a session on using Activotes with our middle school teachers. Ms. Parker from GHS joined the group. Votes have already gone out to participants to begin using these response devices in the classroom in conjunction with online activities and with Promethean flip charts.
Matthew Barfield has published some informative Promethean vodcasts… check them out!
I came across this list of “10 things” about Promethean boards via Twitter. (I could of course take the liberty of telling you how useful a tool Twitter is, but then that wouldn’t be the point of what I sat down to write. But it is a great tool.)
The ten things aren’t particularly profound revelations, as they are things I already instinctually knew about our Proboards. However, they got me thinking about them in a new way, and doing things like tracing you hand were things I’d never even tried. Perhaps the list will inspire you to think about your board in a new way!
I’m in the process of designing Promethean flipcharts for Levels 3-5 with Bea’s help. I am also running into some interesting locations online for flipcharts, and have added them to our Promethean wiki page. Included are flipcharts on word study and a Ning group that’s dedicated to Promethean resources like high school math, and K-5.
