Examples of whiteboards in action
I first came across a tweet from Frank Noschese, a New York Physics teacher, who wrote about 2$ Interactive Whiteboard
Working with whiteboards is a collaborative experience where students can quickly work together, formulate ideas, and then share and adapt them from input from others.
Making your own
Start with 4×8 Thrifty White Tailboard, cut into 2’x2’8″ boards (6 boards per panel)
For Problem Solving
Presentations – Gallery Walk: each group gets the same question and then they can see how each other answered the problem
Pre or post ideas about a topic, video, activity: List, Share, Compare
Word Map – Starting Activity
Give each group a few minutes to write anything they can about their topic. Then groups listen to each other give a word and explain the connection. If the word is shared with another group it gets circled (prevents repeats & makes sure the other groups are listening) if a word or phrase is unique it gets a star.
