One idea, one slide, one image

Sharing is good. I have started a simple Google presentation to allow IWB users to share a simple idea that has proved successful in the classroom. I would like this presentation to grow and grow as more and more people contribute their ideas. We can then all use this resource to help provide professional development for colleagues in our schools, districts, local authorities…

The premise is simple – you have one slide to explain one idea, in addition you have one image to help illustrate (if you wish). Let your ideas be for any group of teachers or children, from beginners to advanced users of the IWB – don’t be constricted by the IWB type, just as long as it’s a useful idea – I am sure we will all find a way to do it! Write about a simple tip or a longer project – you choose. Contribute one or contribute ten! I have made a start – the process is easy.

  1. Go to the presentation and take a look at was has been contributed. If you would like to be added as a collaborator send me an email (thomasgeorgebarrett [at] googlemail [dot] com – or use the contact tab at the top of this page) I will invite you in as a collaborator.
  2. Add your one slide, one idea and one image.
  3. Change the presentation title slide to match the number of ideas.

It will have a humble beginning – currently the presentation is called:

One Interesting Way to use your Interactive Whiteboard”

Please help me change the title and create a supportive document that provides valuable, road tested ideas and tips for IWB users, new and old. I am sure we will all learn something.

  1. Love the image, Tom, I would help only I dont have any experience with IWB’s. However I know how I might use one.

    I would like it to a webgame called Purpose Games.

    I let you take it from here. All the best.

  2. Hi Tom,

    Had a look, seems like a great idea. How do I contribute? can you add me as a collaborator?

  6. I shared this presentation with
    and got this comment:
    I can not get the double tap trick to work. When I press both fingers, the cursor moves halfway between the two points of pressure, but not the object. When I release the first finger, the object goes nowhere! Has anyone else had this problem?
