I hope my fellow EDC3100 students had a wonderful prac. I was reading through some of the posts about prac and came across Melissa’s ‘Different ways to use an interactive whiteboard!‘. Melissa mentioned that she, along with fellow EDC3100 student Bridget, used the interactive whiteboard in their prac classrooms primarily as a projector. This is something that I also admit to. However, the interactive whiteboard in my classroom was many years old and was previously used in the library. As a result, it was not configured properly and wasn’t relied on to work when touched.
The resource that Melissa and Bridget both link to in their blog posts ‘56 Ways to use the Interactive Whiteboard in the Class‘ offers some ways to use technology more creatively. Some food for thought for next prac.
