Interactive Boards

3 Credits
The course, Interactive Boards, is designed for any teacher, technology coordinator, principal, or librarian working with an interactive board or monitor. Students will learn different aspects of how interactive boards affect learning and become proficient in the basic skills needed to navigate the devices. Through the process of completing the required assignments the participants will develop strategies for using their interactive board in their curriculum. The course will provide participants with a set of directions for their device. From this, they will develop meaningful lessons centered on student needs that also meet subject matter standards and framework requirements using their interactive board. Participants will then create their own unit of study with accompanying lesson plans based on their local, state, and national standards. Finally, students will be using the Internet to do research on their device. This course is appropriate for all grade levels. Access to students is not required to complete this course.

This course is applicable towards the Technology Skills for Educators Certificate.

I feel so blessed to have had a job that I totally loved to do each and every day. I thoroughly enjoyed teaching elementary aged students for the past 38 years. I liked not only working with the children, but their families as well. I have made many lifelong connections with many of them. As a teacher, it is such a rewarding feeling to see my students “light come on” and see them understand the objective of the lesson. I was also very fond of working with other teachers and administrators and helping them understand and learn about technology. I always liked integrating technology into my lessons and helping others do the same. This really makes lessons come to life. All my FPU courses are very helpful for teachers to learn how to integrate technology into their classroom lessons. Working with my FPU students is great because they really want to learn and use what they have learned to make their classroom lessons so much better and more meaningful for their students.
