Smartboard ideas I ran a training day last week for a college where we looked at Visualisers (sometimes called Document Cameras). Through the day we tried out some different things that you could do and I took some screen grabs. I have put the screengrabs, and a few photographs from the day into a short presentation.

Smartboard Lessons Hi everyone, I am NOT a fan of blog posts or websites with 57 bazillion hyperlinks and minimal structure, who has time to click on every URL? Well, over the summer I did some workshops on interactive whiteboards and I wanted to gather some resources to share. I could have used a wiki, but a teacher at this school suggested I use PortaPortal – which I’d heard about but never tried.
