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 Tileboard, cut into 2’x2’8″ boards (6 boards per panel)

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.
