So, you inherited an IWB, now what?

Our “So You Inherited an IWB, Now What?” sessions have started …


Teachers in the East and West with both Promethean and SMART Boards attended their first Learning Community (LC) designed to support special education teachers that have an Interactive Whiteboard (IWB) in their classroom, but were not part of the initial training and support that came with the IWB. These teachers will attend four LCs throughout the year. At the first session, teachers were acquainted with the basic functions of the IWB and how to create lessons and activities that they could use with their students to support their learning. At subsequent sessions the teachers will investigate how the IWB can be used as both a teacher and student tool to access curriculum and ultimately improve learning and increase engagement and participation.


One teacher demonstrates how their ideas can be
 expressed orally using the Sound Recorder.
Two teachers work collaboratively to share
   their ideas using the Camera Tool.
