Management Strategies

How do you help your teachers manage their class while either a teacher or student is at the front of the room using the interactive whiteboard?

  • Create a list of rules, perhaps one that parallels your classroom rules, for times when you use the interactive whiteboard. Bring them out to review each time.
  • Have students create their own whiteboards for use at their desks using individual dry eraseboards or laminated poster boards on which they may write to follow along with the presenter.
  • Provide a template for students, one that is similar to what is being presented to place on top of their individual whiteboards.
  • Divide the class into two teams and let the students take turns for one person from each team to go up to the interactive whiteboard to answer questions to games such as Jeopardy.
