Seminar 1

The first seminar will be held by Samantha and she will give tips on making the most of the interactive whiteboard. By using simple cross curricular tips and features, teachers can make the best use of this piece of technology and generate more inspiration and enthusiasm from it. Aspects will include using colour and media in new ways, and how these tips can aid student learning and special needs education.

Seminar 2

The second talk will be given by Gill Leahy and Janice Blackand who are both former teachers. It will focus on the way the Active expressions can support a curriculum area. The speakers will be concentrating on the Maths curriculum in particular to demonstrate this.

Activexpression provides direct communication and contribution to the teacher and the Activboard. Also, with the intuitive design, students are instantly engaged and ready for each lesson.

Samantha Clewes believes that Promethean tools help to aid student interaction and interest in a classroom. The ideas that will be seen at the ITL Festival can be used in a cross-curricular way so students become more engaged and can explore many topics at once.
