All teachers are learners - All learners are teachers � Blog Archive � In defence of Student centric IWB use:
Another must-read post by Lauren O'Grady, this extract is but a paragraph:
".. By contrast, those teachers who used IWBs most effectively were in the enhanced interactivity phase” Which was the point of my presentation that enhanced interactivity is best sought through the partnership between teachers and students whereby knowledge is co constructed instead of spoon-fed."
Another well thought-out post.
I agree with all you say and I noted you had 11 commenters for your first post, "Great White Hope" what a wonderful title.
I agree with:
*asking questions in presentations, to promote "just in time", face to face discussion
*focussing PL on how to best use the tools for student learning
*your references to some of the most recent research
*the shift of attention from teaching to learning focus.
*your observations about IWB - roll marking. This is an administrative function.
All teachers using IWBs should be consciously aiming for the "enhanced interactivity" phase, where learning will be maximised.
