Tomorrow afternoon, I’m off to demonstrate the new blog (and wiki) I set up for local schools in our interactive whiteboard professional support group. With perfect timing, a Departmental newsletter popped up today with three great articles about NSW schools incorporating IWBs into school programs.
Issue #1 (April) 2008 of the AGQTP NSW newsletter has its focus on Interactive whiteboards:
* “Working mathematically with interactive whiteboards” at Illawarra Grammar School, Figtree (p 2)
* “Not just all play” with Belmore South Public School and innovative ways to teach writing, especially narratives (p 3)
* “A catalyst for reflection and change” with St Canice’s Catholic Primary School in Katoomba (p 4).
The newsletter is a Quality Teacher Programme (QTP) project funded by the Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace relations. The issue mentioned above is also available online.
