When it works, it’s amazing!

I’m referring, of course, to my new Interactive Whiteboard. I think I’m going to name my second child Promethean.

I’ve already learned to color. I’ve learned to build up my reference library. I’ve highlighted. I’ve graphed. I’ve mapped. I’ve illustrated. I’ve saved. I’ve circled. I’ve squared. I’ve color-coded. I’ve flipped. I’ve rotated.  I’ve pressed. I’ve shuffled.  I’ve clicked. I’ve taught.  I’ve been taught.  I’ve converted.  I’ve reformatted.

I’ve developed lessons for Evidence vs. Commentary on Lit. Analysis and Persuasive essays. I’ve developed lessons on proper bibliography formatting for cross-curricular essays.  I’ve adapted dual-entry journals. I’ve integrated lessons enhancing my literature curriculum and my writing curriculum.  I’ve used flipcharts to overlay on top of my previously created powerpoints.  I’ve used the Tickertape to highlight important words, to illustrate key phrases, and to shout out reminders.  I’ve used the clock to count down and up.  I’ve developed Grammar lessons using Golden Lines.  I’ve created flipcharts of “The Great Rat Hunt” and “The Ransom of Red Chief.”

…Oh yeah, the district scheduled my training for Monday, Oct. 6th.

    Love your post… But I am biased – I work for Promethean and run the company blog.

    Hope it all keeps working for you.

    I think that you will benefit the most from the training the district offers because you already know the problems and limitations, and hopefully you get some answers and fixes to any problems you’ve experienced.

    Most of the time training on something like this makes it seem like the technology runs in a perfect word, but you will be able to bring some real life issues to the training. Hopefully everyone will benefit.
