Getting the most out of your Interactive Whiteboard: approaches and pedagogies with Pete Sharma

There are various approaches to teaching with an Interactive Whiteboard (IWB): using the board to run PowerPoint, the Internet, and regular EFL programs such as CD-ROMs in class; using the vast range of software which comes with the board; using ‘whiteboardable’ material, so-called ‘interactive course books’; and of course, creating your own materials. As teachers become familiar with using the IWB, they begin to marry the use of the hardware and software with their own pedagogical know-how in new and exciting ways. Innovative ideas on presenting, practising and reviewing language start to emerge as the technology becomes normalised.

As mentioned, course details and booking forms can be found on the English UK site. Just to say I’d love to see you in London next February!
