Utilizing interactive whiteboard activities and incorporating interactive whiteboards into your routine may push you out of your comfort zone (or your rut as you might start realizing), but we encourage you to lose sight of the shore so that you can discover new territory.
As with any technology, the whiteboard is not a magic bullet. The teacher who implements interactive whiteboard technology effectively is the one that will see gains in student engagement and learning.
However, if not implemented correctly, interactive whiteboards can easily become no more than expensive dry erase boards.
Whether you've recently joined the ranks of new interactive whiteboard users or if your interactive whiteboard is gathering dust on the wall, we hope that you will find the ideas below useful for broadening your technology repertoire and become a master at engaging students with your interactive whiteboard.
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 to include in your own lessons.
