General Discussion / IWB lesson ideas for teachers
« on: March 10, 2009, 05:35:37 AM »
Nice resources from the UK  I found for teachers using IWBs in their classrooms - breaks everything down nicely by subject.

The link to "Use of interactive whiteboards in science" is broken - I found it here.

I'm handing these out to teachers that I'm teaching to use wiimote whiteboards.

. I can make it work pretty well but wiimote has to be about 2 feet away. Is there anyway to improve tracking when it is closer?

Could you do something with a mirror at a 45 degree angle under the clipboard?

Here is a 2 minute video for starting up the Java Wiimote Whiteboard I made as reference for other teachers in my building.

I'm making something similar - but for 1st graders   :P 

..... will be a vista machine.

Any suggestion on what Bluetooth Dongle I should buy/order to make getting my the laptop going with both the Java Whiteboard and Smoothboard up and running as easily as possible?

I'm getting the same message on my home vista machine for Java.

But I am able connect with wiimoteconnect and Smoothboard - any ideas?



well, genius is what you're doing, and thanks for all the work you're putting into it.   :)

Just a quick question on Smoothboard.....
           -is there anyway to turn off the wiimote from Smoothboard?


Hi everybody, I've been setting up wiiboards in other classrooms and I thought I'd share what I'm giving the teachers.
