engagement should be active involvement
Suzanne Nelson 1
7:19 PM
watching is passive -- that may be the deal breaker
Gail Maloney 1
7:19 PM
Watching is less interactive, perhaps.
Cristina Peltekis
7:19 PM
I think it's more used to engage to interact, not just watch
Pat Swiatek
7:19 PM
If it grabs their attention they might very well be more tuned in. We notice when we put on a video all of the fiddling and playing and chatting stops
Susan Sarshik
7:20 PM
Becaue it is in color, and offers motion, graphics it raches today's students in a manner in which they are use to obtaining informaton
Elise
7:20 PM
better option across the middle
Suzanne Nelson 1
7:20 PM
watching shouldn't be the only use for the IWB
Gail Maloney 1
7:20 PM
Some kids need to just watch for a while
Pat Swiatek
7:20 PM
Watching instructions or an intro needs to be watched at times
Elise
7:20 PM
involvement is still the key

no I can't wait to share with my staff

Would love to hear the RESULTS from your staff

oh yes and unfortunately a lot of my teachers have fallen back to the Vanna role
So I think I will use this to give them a refresher

Community activities such as Pennies for the Planet
Colleen Hoban

I searched for vowels. I did not like the first site b/c of the advertisments. The other sight was scholastic.
Melissa Henning
7:41 PM
Looking now - what grade level?
Elise
7:41 PM
Loved this!! :)
Gail Maloney 1
7:41 PM
How do you save all the websites that you find to locate quickly?
Melissa Henning
7:41 PM
I did a 3d search and got 8 results - some looked decent
Colleen Hoban
7:41 PM
Yeah - I would love to learn about removing the ads!
Heather Hurley
7:41 PM
Ad Block - Firefox add on is wonderful

Susan Sarshik

Think about getting students to the board mush more ....note taking, sidebars
Pat Swiatek
8:14 PM
Having my children lead more of the lesson, sort of like peer teaching
Heather Temske
8:15 PM

Gail Maloney 1

Think: How I can reserve IWB time for 4 classes of students in an elem. school of 1500!
Suzanne Nelson 1
8:15 PM
I will use title "Master of Ceremonies" for my middle school students. They'll love that. The thought wall with maximizing and minimizing to show importance is simple yet effective. Will help us figure out what's important and what's not.
