Whiteboards at Your Service: Interactive Whiteboards Can Assist Teachers, Students, Trainers, and District Office Personnel
Branzburg, Jeffrey
Technology & Learning, v28 n2 p38 Sep 2007
Interactive whiteboards have made quite a splash in classrooms in recent years. When a computer image is projected on the whiteboard using an LCD projector, users can directly control the computer from the whiteboard. In some systems such as Smart and Mimio, the finger is used in place of a mouse to open and run programs or move windows around. In the Numonics system a multimedia pen is used directly on the board. Teachers (or students) can annotate the whiteboard with notes and drawings, save those files onto the computer, and then record a video of a sequence of events. Whatever one can do at a computer screen, one can do at an interactive whiteboard--and easily include large groups or the whole class in the process. This article presents several ideas for integrating whiteboards into the classroom. These ideas include recording, graphic organizers, presentations, interactive software, Google Earth, interactive mathematics, and quizzes and games. The article includes a list of manufacturers of interactive whiteboards that offer lessons and activities on their websites.
