Wie geht das, Herr Lehrer?

Auch wenn interaktive Whiteboards schon lange auf dem Markt sind, hat die Mehrheit aller Lehrer wohl noch nicht viel mit der neuen Tafel zu tun gehabt. Welche technischen Handgriffe muss man beherrschen? Wie lassen sich Inhalte attraktiv für das multimediale System aufbereiten? Damit sich all diese Fragezeichen über den rauchenden Lehrerköpfen langsam aber sicher in Luft auflösen, bemühen sich vor allem die Hersteller der digitalen Tafeln sowie Verlage um ein vielseitiges Fortbildungsangebot. Hier ein paar Links zu Anbietern von Fortbildungen…

Meist werden die Kurse für einige wenige Teilnehmer ausgeschrieben, die wiederum aufgefordert werden, ihr neu erworbenes Wissen an ihren Schulen weiterzugeben. Auf den Seiten der Bildungs- und Medieninstitute der einzelnen Bundesländer, findet man vereinzelt ebenfalls Veranstaltungen zur Einführung in die Tricks und Kniffe der interaktiven “weißen Tafel”.

  1. I personally find Notebook software to be far superior in ease of use and reliability. ActivStudio seems to be ok, but lacking in many areas around ease of use for the teacher/student. The vast amount of resources within Notebook software I find to be more relevant.Although this is a nice, open blog for commenting tom, your response sounds more angry than informative.So, some real reasons why I personally prefer SMART Boards and Notebook software to ActivBoards and ActivStudio: 1. Ease of use – the SMART Board itself is more intuitive navigate with a finger, write with a pen, etc as opposed to navigating and writing with a pen. This can be seen in newer technologies as well. It is all about touch for navigation and manipulating content (ie iPhone, Microsoft Surface, etc) using a stylus as the mode of input seems to be less intuitive and not in the newer innovations coming out in products even folks like Dell added touch to their tablet pc because just a stylus isnt as intuitive as having touch. 2. Resources – there are soooo many teacher created resources and materials out there for the SMART Board. There are lots for promethean too, but i find many many more available for SMART Boards and not just from the manufacturer or publishing houses, but from teachers and educators. 3. Community – there are so many SMART Board users throughout so many areas that it is easy to find fellow users anywhere you go.I am sure there are many more reasons, as well as opinions out there do other folks out there have opinions to share?

    Tanks for your opinion! Since both systems (ActivBoards and SMARTBoards) are in use in German schools we were looking for a solution that would run on both of them. Our team is working with mimio, by the way.
