Are you new to using an interactive whiteboard (IWB)? Have you used one for ages but want some other ideas? Are you using an IWB regularly but know you could use it better? Then you are invited to join the Whiteboard Challenge!
Whiteboard Challenge Wiki
The aim of this challenge:
To improve the use of interactive whiteboards in the classroom and to stimulate more discussion about how they can best be used.
What the challenge involves:
This Interactive Whiteboard Challenge will run for 7 weeks initially, starting on Monday August 11th. Each week there will be a new task set by someone who is an experienced whiteboard user. They will present their challenge in whatever way they like - it might be a short video, a screen cast a podcast. You then need to go and use whatever they have presented in your classroom that week. Record your efforts and write a blog post about how you went. At the end of the challenge you will have 7 blog posts about your whiteboard practice, and lots of other blog posts on similar topics available to you to read. Title your blog post 'Whiteboard Challenge Week 1' etc or something very similar so it is easy for others to identify your post.

This challenge sounds like just the thing for me and perhaps some of my school colleagues. The only thing is that we are not Language teachers - do you think we could still participate?
Hope to hear from you soon :)
It's not just for language teachers, so please all are welcome!
My friend and colleague told me about this amazing lote teacher Jess. I would like to take up your IWB challenge.
