At the school where I am completing placement, the teachers use the Promethean IWBs.
Some teachers are proficient in using them, others not so much. Overall however, I’d say that the IWBs are used positively with regards to the curriculum.
On Tuesday we had a Health Education program come into the school. The instructor used a television screen, computer, and the Promethean Active Expression Handsets to engage with the students and receive responses. I was enthralled! I grabbed a handset and used it along with the students and learnt while they learnt. If you want to see more about the tool have a look at this page.
Needless to say – I hope that one day in my classroom I will get to use these handsets and maybe even have them as a part of my classroom.
Hope all of you are having wonderfully ICT rich placements!
