Using Interactive Whiteboards and Displays in Adult Education
An interactive whiteboard, also known as interactive board or smart board, is a large interactive display board in the form of a whiteboard that is connected to a computer (laptop, tablet, desktop, etc.) Most interactive boards require proprietary software installed where images are projected from a device to a board or as interactive displays that have the software installed and a device connects to it to use.
Depending on the device, system, and setup, interactive boards and displays allow interaction through touch, keyboard, special pens, as well as hand-off to another device.
Topics may include but are not limited to:
- Connecting to the board,
- Menu items and tools,
- Creating content,
- Accessing content, including from the Internet,
- Ideas for activities during class,
- Simple troubleshooting, and more as time allows or is requested.
Only in-person workshops are available for this session. Due to the varied brands and types of interactive boards, a request for this session must be received at least one month before the workshop date. Practice time, the day before the workshop, may also be requested and/or required so that the trainer may become fully familiar with the equipment.
- Attendees must have basic computer skills and a valid email address.
- This workshop is in-person only - no online options will be allowed.
OTAN Certificates of Attendance are awarded only for workshop sessions to those that are pre-registered and attend at least 75% of the scheduled time.
