We looked at Interactive White Boards in a workshop. One of the most memorable activity was the dissecting of a poor little frog. The good thing about being able to conduct activities like this means that poor Kermit won’t have to cut into one of his pal.
As discussed by Burden (2002, p. 18) that the use of Interactive whiteboards has been led by schools and that tertiary education is only beginning o investigate the potential for use in the tertiary education. In my first trimester at university I have only seen the white boards used interactively by students in 2 classes. I found both these lessons to be really helpful and the interactive exercise to be very engaging.
