Our Learning Circle is for supporting one another in our common goal to meaningfully integrate technology in our classrooms by sharing ideas, lessons, challenges, and successes, especially for making best use of our Interactive Whiteboards.

January Meeting

At our second meeting in January, we explored the question of "Why SmartBoards?" We considered what makes them a useful tool for effective integration.

We had some fun with the problem statements that are sometimes made by those opposed to the use of SmartBoards in the classroom. Formulating responses to these overstated problems helped us to come up with our own reasoning and arguments for the use of these tools. The problem statements and some of our responses can be viewed in this SlideShare presentation.

We didn't have as much time for sharing as we had hoped, but a few highlights included:
Also, doorprizes went to: Sherry, who won the Bluetooth handsfree device for her phone, and to Alissa, who won the earbuds for her iPod. Congratulations, ladies! Next time, we will be sure to have less healthy food and more 'playtime' on the boards!
