Now, you have installed and calibrated the whiteboard, installed peripherals and software, and taught with an interactive whiteboard (
Even if not mastered)
Now is the time to think: what will you do with this special device in the real context of English classes?
A few days-to-
When whiteboards can be involved, teaching methods during the day are often easier and more effective.
Teacher modeling is one: show students how to organize their writing and how to prove it
Read and Edit sentences, how to paragraph in text, merge phrases, find ideas, notes, write, etc!
Of course, students will soon be involved in modeling. -
Let them use visual and emotional skills to strengthen positive habits and develop their understanding.
The recording function allows thelon to be recorded in real time so that the text of each creation or adapter screen can be replayed to remind them of previous learning.
Revision and sharing of good practices can make it easier, sustainable and meaningful.
With the floating tool, you can add notes and notes anywhere visible on the screen--
With the camera, you can choose whether to capture the window or full screen.
This captured image can be saved in an existing openflipchart or a new openflipchart, and comments can be saved in another course.
It is especially useful to save these files somewhere on the network where users can access the information themselves-
It is especially useful for exam review.
Teachers can also print and save work from any class, often reducing the need to create revised resources from scratch.
There is a scanner in your classroom that allows you to share the presentation of a good job (almost)
With your students right away.
It is also very satisfying to show students in grade 11 how far they have gone since grade 9.
You can create an online bank.
This can be done further by using a webcam or a digital camera to record speaking and listening work.
You can also have the students evaluate themselves what they see on the screen in order to better understand the criteria they are assessed.
I created a set of sample speaking and listening tasks myself using the camera, which adds an aspect --
Effect: students not only produce works that can be used for younger groups and peers, but they are very motivated to see themselves on the screen.
For them it may be just an incentive to see their teacher on the screen.
Of course, the possibility of enriching your own and students' speeches is endless, but for example, when doing media research assignments for aqa gcse English, students download them from the Web to a notebook
They then created powerpoint presentations, where they annotated the still images taken from two different movie versions of the same text for comparison.
These presentations form the basis for oral and listening assessment as students present their ideas in groups and use whiteboards as tools to help their presentations.
The camera tool is used to take the final, fully annotated images and then save them to the wall chart as a revision.
The files are then printed into memos when they write their own articles.
Their presentation will be next year as an example of the level of media analysis needed in the course.
Analysis of text and language structure: dynamic activities help to make language research more interesting and easy to understand.
Using software that can be used to explicitly teach the language, you can manipulate the text to explore word classes, sentence sequences, and even paragraph structures.
As students are able to physically interact with software and tasks, it stimulates the conversation in the task.
Students can move punctuation, highlight words, sentences or paragraphs around to represent classes or types, safely experiment with the order of sentences and words, and do interesting experiments.
Class discussion: the useful tool here is "Spotlight" which allows the user to display a small part of the screen at a time;
The "friction and display" facility involves placing a layer of color on a picture or text to hide it, and then using an eraser to show the layers below, which also helps stimulate the conversation.
Hide pre-using text color and layering-
The existing shapes on the screen also make it possible to classify them in a very intimate way.
The potential of the whiteboard can only be realized through our efforts.
Experiment is very important. Don't be afraid to make mistakes.
After doing a lot of research on the Internet, I put together the list of simple tasks, let me start working, and help other novice users understand the versatility of the whiteboard, if carefully and sensitively used: 1.
Using painting and images as the driving force for creation-
Students describe shape, color, thoughts, mood. 2.
Play "blockchain" using the dictionary and the summary on the board ".
Perfect for introducing poetry terms-
In order to find the right term, the reading definition and the team must compete. 3.
Director's scenario: use software such as Imovie or Microsoft movie maker to create personal edits to a movie to discuss the syntax of moving image sequences;
To explore the impact of the soundtrack on the way the movie is read, download different music files and layer on the image-
How does the mood change? 4.
Create a learning guide in PowerPoint--
The students make their own modified materials for a group of viewers. 5.
Record the order of proofreading work, demonstrate the proofreading process, and then play back to your class.
Will they do different things? 6.
Use all shapes, images, and color brainstorming and mind maps to classify, classify, and add meaning layers to your article planning.
Keep in mind that all whiteboard software comes with resources--
Promethean, like most make, has a large library of images, shapes, backgrounds, and lines, all of which are very useful. 7.
Sequence the still image into the storyboard movie.
It also helps creative writing. -
Write from different angles to match the images on the screen.
This can be done by using the page organizer view to change the order of the page. 8.
Explain the text version with the downloaded picture to add a layer of relevant meaning. 9. Interview--
Establish a webcam link with another classroom through the Internet and interview each other. 10.
Display the answer using the display tool--
Let the questions be on the left, the answers are on the right, and display them after a period of countdown using the clock function. 11.
Focus on different areas of the image, allowing students to focus on small details that make creative writing effective ---
Gradually reveal the whole picture. 12.
Order a series of events through images taken by a webcam or still camera to create instructions. 13.
Mapping connections between characters and events--
To symbolize different emotions in different colors (e. g.
The Red Arrows of the two characters indicate that they love each other, and the Black Arrows indicate that they are deadly enemies). 14.
Create a video clip of a group of different people reading the same poem-
What is the impact of different backgrounds, different tone, different accents? 15.
Demonstrate different movie technologies in real time using webcam-
What is the effect of close-up and high-angle lenses? 16.
Color is used to highlight and recognize different parts of speech. 17.
Scan the page from text read in class--
This will help those who are hard to understand and allow you to worry about "life" and save it for future use and for those who are absent. 18. Re-
Order text when drafting. 19.
Delete complex vocabulary to simplify the text and enhance the text with another color to show the development. 20.
Order confusing text. 21.
Scan especially good written work to share.
The only limit we have is time and energy. -
The possibilities outside are endless!
