This will be my third year facilitating the Biology class at our co-op. To spice things up, I have decided to use the co-op’s Intelliboard. It is a bit challenging to work with,but I’m getting there. Thought you would like to see part of the first lesson. This is one of the pages I’ll have on the board for the students to see.
After I have lectured for a few minutes, I’ll talk through the cycle of producers, consumers, and decomposers, by drawing green arrows to the organism that is receiving the energy. I can do that right on the board and if I want it, it will save the arrows for me. Cool!
Like my drawing of the dead man? Yeah, me too. It is one of my finest pieces.
The Intelliboard aka Virtual WhiteBoard is around 62″ wide. And has all kinds of features I plan to use. The main reason I wanted to use this board, is to take photos of dissected specimens for the students to see. While they dissect their own specimen, I can point to what they are suppose to be looking for on the board. The last two years I’ve had to hop from student to student to help them. It will be easier with the board I hope. Nothing like having larger than life frog guts on the board for all to see! If I plan this right, it will happen right on the day we have visitors.
I look forward to that!
