Are you drowning in chalk dust? Is the smell of dry erase ink too much to take? Have you written, erased and re-written the same thing on a board so many times you could do it in your sleep? Would you like to create quick tutorials for your students? The purpose of this seminar is to discuss tangible ways to use an interactive whiteboard to enhance students’ learning experience in each of the areas of engagement, motivation, and knowledge retention. Using an interactive whiteboard can create a visual learning experience, complete with color, sound, and movement to engage students and hold their interest and increase student learning. Even if you don’t have access to a SMART Board, this seminar will show you how to 'create' your own interactive whiteboard and how you can even record what you 'write’ to save and use as tutorials and lessons that can be posted to Blackboard. This technology solution will enhance your lectures for both in class and online courses.
