Celebrating the holidays the Interactive Tech Way!
Every year at this time, John G Diefenbaker P.S. has a Holiday Open House instead of a traditional seasonal concert. During the open house, each classroom has a craft, activity or performance for parents and students to participate in. This year, one of the members of our Interactive Whiteboard (IWB) community decided to share the use of the Interactive Whiteboard with visitors.
The MID (Ms. Binksma) and HSP (Ms. McGimpsey) teachers paired up to introduce parents to the Interactive Whiteboard. With the help of the AT itinerant teacher, the teachers created a holiday/winter themed activity in SMART Notebook, which students and parents were invited to get some hands-on time using the IWB. From the Winter-themed home page, students and parents could link out to division-specific activities.
Students used word-based interactive flash teacher-created pages. Each page had built-in instant feedback.
The activity was a great success and parents loved seeing how interactive the Smart Board was!
