Creative Ways to use Whiteboards in the Classroom

Interactive whiteboards are a prominent addition in many modern classrooms, but often their many features are missed. Whiteboards are ideal for learning and can be used in many fun and creative ways.

Use Google Earth

Google Earth is ideal for use within everyday classes, especially with lessons like geography. Google Earth allows students to explore the world in perfect detail on the big screen, which adds the real wow-factor to classes!

Virtual Tours

Many places of importance offer online virtual tours which can be accessed through interactive whiteboards and shown to students. Many virtual tours are also interactive which can help to keep children engaged throughout the lesson. Take a look at virtual tours before upcoming visits as an introduction to the trip.

Competitions

Competitive fun in the classroom can really help children to learn and grow. There are multiple ways to integrate learning games into interactive whiteboards, including Wii and Kinect. Students should be divided into teams to compete against each other in games that require knowledge and skill. Students will be able to build their team spirit, competitiveness and knowledge.

School Trip Recaps

What better way to recap what was learnt and discovered on a school trip then viewing the photos and videos taken on the big screen? This is a great way of making a fun and educational summary of the trip, helping children to see everything they learnt and why it was important and valuable.

Working Together

Interactive whiteboards allow students to work together and interact with one another. Teachers should ask children to work together on a project via the whiteboard, with different tasks done by different students in front of the class. This will engage the entire class group and help them learn together whilst helping one another, too.

There are many ways to use interactive whiteboards and they come with a lot of software that can help you to involve the class. We’d love to hear your own creative ways to use whiteboards in the classroom, why not tweet us @essexgroup or via our Facebook.
