Using an Interactive Whiteboard to Improve Science-Specific Skills
Earle, Sarah
Primary Science Review, n85 p18-20 Nov-Dec 2004
As a science subject leader and year 6 teacher in North Bristol, the author has spent the last few months exploring how an interactive whiteboard (IWB) can be used to teach science skills, particularly those that are repeatedly highlighted as problematic, such as analysis and evaluation of evidence. The IWB came with software called "ACTIVstudio" that enables the user to write on the board directly and is very easy to use. In this article, the author examines how the whiteboard can help with difficult-to-teach skills such as analysis and evaluation of evidence. (Contains 1 table and 3 figures.)
