I have come to the end of my challenge and this week i have focused more in using the IWB with the students and as a toll for them.
With Year 7, we have carried on the topic of leisure. I have imported pictures and written sentences for them to match. It has certainly been much easier for them to move words and pictures around thanks to the "lock in place" and "allow to move functions" (right-click on the mouse). We also watched
With my Year 9, I have used Google Map to work on directions. I showed them how to prepare their work by labeling different points on their map, They are going to show the results of their work on the board. They produced some invitations for a party and had to give directions to the party.
With Year 7 we watched the BBc programme called Talk French where students have to identify which sport people liked doing. We also did the online exercises. (See previous post).
Year 11 were going on study leave so we did a lot of revision. We used Interactive websites like linguastars, and other websites that I have recommended before. I have enjoyed doing the challenge, I have used the IWB for several years now but having to look at new way to use it has certainly been enlightening. I am looking forwards exploring Notebook 10 when it becomes available in school. I will certainly check with the technician.
