For some time, I have been keen to discover a way for students to interact with the interactive whiteboard from their individual devices. My hope was to discover a way for them to contribute ideas, answers, vote for ideas etc. I knew this had to be possible but it would require a search. Whilst looking for something else – I found it. I came across a very helpful blog the whiteboard blog. This is a fabulous resource for supporting technology in the classroom. Through this blog, I discovered ProWisePresenter – a cloud-based software that allows interaction between a digital screen and any classroom device using ProConnect. This provides a world of opportunities as teachers can create presentations which engage student participation. Students can annotate, add text or images and even vote on a poll or answer quiz questions on their individual devices.
Sharnel Faulds a colleague and peer, has also blogged about Interactive Whiteboard resources and she has included some fabulous links amidst some insightful reflection.
