I wrote a post w few weeks ago about getting an IWB and my obsession to make it “interactive”, not an expensive screen. Part of the PD, I had to come up with 2 ways to use it and/or it’s software and actually do it. SO I decided to share with you all my ways.
1. I used the screen capture tool to show my students how to change privacy settings and delete friends on social networking sites. The sites are blocked and I could not show them how to do these things at school! Hard to just tell someone how to use a website!
2. While I will be out this week (going to PD that goes with the grant for the IWB -no comment) I am putting together a presentation using the flipchart program for sub to run for the kids. It will have a video on holocaust and a slide before and after explaining the video then their assignment. (YES I know you can do that in ppt, thanks, but I HATE ppt and I have to use this program! lol)
3. I am putting together a weather presentation video for the students. It will look like what is on the green screen during a weather report. The students will write the script, have to understand what each part means, and “do” the report. They will use the IWB to present this.
Still not using the actual board as something other than screen, but I am using the software that came with it. I guess that is a start.
