Interactive Sites for the Interactive Whiteboard
A Day of Learning
"Who dares to teach must never cease to learn" - John Cotton Dana
Webinars are a super way to learn in the comfort of your own space, whether that be in a group at school or alone with your home computer. Recently, I spent a day of learning at SimpleK12 viewing several webinars on technology. In the first webinar Interactive Sites for the Interactive Whiteboard, we were given a tour of several web sites for use with our SmartBoards. Below are a few sites that I'd like to share with teachers. Click here for a PDF Interactive Whiteboards Workbook from Simplek12, the provider of the webinar.
