Interactive Whiteboard ActivitiesGet a jumpstart on finding the best interactive whiteboard activities to engage and motivate your students here. The best activities are those that don't tie you to a certain brand of whiteboard, and we've included some of our favorites here. It would be near impossible for this to be an all-inclusive list, but we've tried to provide some productive links to get you started on your hunt for the best interactive whiteboard activities.
Use your imagination when considering interactive whiteboard activities and how they can apply to your lesson...focus learners, introduce a topic, take a brain break, test knowledge, or provide learners with current information on an old topic!
If you are a clicker user, you may also find that many of these activities are conducive to clicker use, and we have provided even more clicker links on our clicker activities page.
MimioConnect is an invaluable resource if you are implementing the MimioTeach or MimioStudio software. This online
community full of avid Mimio educators is a great starting point to download some already-created lessons by those with maybe a little more experience than yourself. It's fun just to browse the lessons and see what sort of activities other teachers have created. In addition, you'll find questions answered by Mimio Masters and lots of free downloadable content packs
to add to your Mimio Gallery for free! When you get up to speed on creating lessons, pay it forward and share your own with the rest of the world on MimioConnect.
