||: Interactive whiteboards can be used purely as presentation devices and even when used in this mode, they can be valuable
in motivating students. But from a pedagogical perspective, there are a number of key features of interactive whiteboards which take their role beyond mere display:
• their interactivity, which facilitates active learning, not just passive reception of information;
• their size, which facilitates collaborative group working;
• their accessibility for all learners but especially young children and those with a visual or physical impairment; their recordability, so that any end product can be stored for subsequent re-use, or deconstructed to analyse a process. In this course you will be able to explore the possibilities of the use of the IWB in your language teaching.
The session is presented by Mr Viano Jaksa, Senior Account Manager at Leetgeek Pty Ltd and Apple Certified Consultant with over 20 years of work experience in the field of education.
