Whiteboard Resources

14 January 2011

Smart Board Goodies is packed with ideas, links and resources to use on a Smart Interactive Whiteboard. The Whiteboard Blog is another favourite resource area, check out the post 20 Interactive Whiteboard Resources for Teachers.

Smart Exchange is a place where teachers can share whiteboard files. Promethean have a similar site called Promethean Planet . The Lighthouse for Education also contains Promethean Flipcharts.

There is a further list of Whiteboard sites here. Have I missed any?

Interactive Resources

28 July 2007

Thanks to the latest edition of the Promethean Planet E – Newsletter for recommending the Crickweb Website:

It contains hundreds of great interactive whiteboard resources which are free to use on all types of board or stand alone. There are resources for all key stages and most curriculum areas. Within each section there are a range of resources to download with a brief description of the activity. The editor of the E – Newsletter was particularly taken by the fish tank game within the Early Years section, where you have to catch fish with your net and see them in a fish bowl. Pupils further up the school may wish to try the function machine which includes the option to set all operations and numbers.

Please let me know of any other websites with interactive resources.

Interactive Whiteboard Resources

24 September 2006

Why spend valuable preparation time reinventing the wheel when there are sites offering ready made resources for the interactive whiteboard? The files may not be exactly what you were looking for, but the downloaded resource can be used as a starting point and adapted to the needs of the lesson. The National Whiteboard Network from the primary strategy is probably the best starting point. It contains Smart board, Promethean board and PowerPoint files on Literacy, Numeracy and foundation subject units of work.

There are more resources for Smart boards at the Smart Education site.

Promethean have recently launched a new site called Promethean Planet  to enable user to share resources. The Lighthouse for Education (North East Linconshire) also contains Promethean Flipcharts.

The Birmingham Grid for Learning have interactive resources that can be used on all types of boards.
