Be inspired! 10 Creative Ways to Use Interactive White Boards in the Classroom — Emerging Education Technologies Over the last decade or so, Interactive White Boards (IWBs) have proliferated in schools in the U.S. and across much of the world. Some teachers have embraced them, and others, well … not so much. Unfortunately, some schools did not offer the professional development necessary to help teachers become familiar with these systems and get the most out of their availability. Many teachers were left to their own devices to learn and use their IWBs. In this blog entry on, a few specialists stated their views on the topic.

5 Ways to Collect Digital Exit Tickets One of the strategies that I use when creating lesson plans is to reflect on the previous lesson. Part of that reflection includes feedback from students. This can be done by simply asking students to raise their hands in response to a "did you get it?" type of question, but I like to have better record of responses than just a hand count. Here are some tools that can be used for collecting exit information from students.

Catching up on Today’s Top Interactive Whiteboard Brands — Emerging Education Technologies Digital whiteboards have been a part of education for well over a decade now. When they were first introduced, these large, interactive displays allowed teachers to deliver — and their students to interact with — content in a completely new way. As tablets and other portable technologies became more sophisticated and affordable, however, some edutech experts began to question whether the digital whiteboard revolution was over before it really began. If today’s digital whiteboard market is any indication, those fears were for nought. In 2012, Danny Nicholson, author of The Whiteboard Blog, told Education Week that there is still a place for interactive whiteboards in the classroom.

Design New Ways to Spark Student Creativity With Tackk Tagged with: AppsEdmodo AppsEdmodo StoreTackk Aside from being a teacher for five years for the School District of Philadelphia, most recently at Crossroads Accelerated Academy at Meade, I’m a husband, father, veteran, coach, and Scout Leader. On a flight from Philadelphia to Florida, I saw an advertorial in my in-flight magazine for Tackk, a free way to create web pages using photos, video, buttons, maps, media, and other digital resources. Because there’s no off switch to being a teacher, I wondered how I could use Tackk in my classroom, instead of the real estate and other industries the examples showed. Once I started playing with Tackk, I realized it’s perfect for my 8th and 9th grade business technology classes, a very simple and time-saving way to collaborate and share (“borrow”) lesson plans with other teachers, and extremely adaptable to other grades and subjects. Tackk is so useful that I’ve transitioned many of my final assignments to Tackk page presentations.

When I started teaching in 2004, I used any/all available technology. I had an overhead projector and a CD player. Then I scored an InFocus machine and a laptop because no one else in the social studies department had use for it. Afterwards, I graduated to a SmartBoard and “hoarder of laptop carts.” Even when I was a “floater,” without my own classroom for several years, I would wheel my own teaching cart and two laptop carts to all of my classes- without missing a beat.
