Alongside familiarising myself with the features of my blog, after our second session I also spent sometime reading from the lists suggested in our previous sessions. I found The Little Book of Superb ICT to enhance Teaching and Learning in the Classroom to be a brilliant resource as it lists a vast array of websites and programs that can be used by both teachers and students.
This was a interactive workshop style session that allowed us to gain experience in using IWB’s. In small groups we were encouraged to explore the features of the Smart Board in our classroom. Within these groups we first learnt how to recalibrate the Interactive Whiteboards and were then given the opportunity to use the visualizer and to experiment with the different features of the Smart board such as the writing styles, fonts and colours that are available.
