During tonight's eMINTS training, we had a lot of hands on / sharing / how do you do that activities. We had a presenter present who gave basic instruction and asked us to experiment with the four boards that were set up. It was a lot of fun as many participants had learned some fun ways to use the software. Each who had learned to do something fun shared their ideas after we practiced what we were taught. It was fun to see how many people had been "playing" with the software and the boards on their own time. The group of five I worked with seemed to have all spent at least 5 hours of their own time experimenting. I enjoyed the training and look forward to the install of the board in my classroom so I may do these things with my students.
