The application and influence of interactive whiteboard
Aug 14, 2018

What is an electronic interactive whiteboard?

The electronic interactive whiteboard is integrated by a hardware electronic whiteboard (WhiteBoard) and a software whiteboard operating system (ACTIVstudio). Its core components consist of an electronic sensor whiteboard, sensor pen, computer and projector.

The electronic sensor whiteboard is a large sensor screen with normal blackboard size and working under the support of computer hardware and software. It functions as a computer monitor and replaces the traditional blackboard. The electronic sensor pen takes on the dual function of the whiteboard pen and the computer mouse, and its role replaces the traditional chalk. The teacher or student directly uses the sensor pen to operate on the whiteboard (equivalent to the traditional teaching, the teacher and student use chalk to operate on the blackboard): write or call various software, then feedback to the computer through electromagnetic induction and quickly project to the electronic through the projector White board.

ACTIVstudio is a software platform that exists in computers. It not only supports the exchange of information between people and whiteboards, computers and projectors, but also comes with a powerful library of subject materials and resource creation tools. And it is an intelligent operation platform compatible with various software. Teachers can freely call various materials or application software teaching on the whiteboard. The whiteboard is a combination of traditional blackboards, computers, projectors, etc., making it easy for teachers to use. At present, electronic interactive whiteboards have entered the primary and secondary school classrooms, and have become the mainstream mode of educational information equipment in primary and secondary schools in the UK. The electronic interactive whiteboard replaces the traditional blackboard and becomes an indispensable tool for teachers in the UK.

Second, the application of electronic whiteboard in teaching

Teachers apply whiteboard teaching in three stages:

The first stage: add visual effects (Supporteddidactic). Teachers use the whiteboard to increase the visual effect of teaching. It is only used as a tool for teaching, and can not be integrated into teaching as an informational means to promote the mastery of student concepts. Classes at this stage are rarely interactive, and students rarely participate and discuss.

The second stage: Interactive stage (Interactive). Teachers can use some of the functions in the whiteboard operating system to make the explanation and presentation of knowledge and concepts clearer, and to encourage students to answer questions and expand the perspectives and ways of thinking.

The third stage: greatly improved the interactive interactive thinking of the teaching (Enhancedinteractive-Achangeofthinking). Teachers can skillfully apply whiteboard technology in subject teaching, and fully apply curriculum resources: network resources and localized courseware, etc., to stimulate students to actively participate in the teaching process, actively participate in teaching discussions, answer questions, and make bold assumptions and explanations about knowledge, thereby promoting The cognitive development of students.

Third, the impact of electronic interactive whiteboard technology on teaching

The influence of electronic interactive whiteboard technology on teaching and learning is mainly reflected in the following aspects:

1. Impact on teaching and teacher professional development

(1) The main difference between electronic interactive whiteboards and other teaching multimedia lies in the interactivity of whiteboards. The traditional multimedia courseware is more of a presentation function. Students cannot participate in the courseware during the presentation because the content of the courseware cannot be changed. The "courseware" (actually the teacher's digital lesson plan) made with whiteboard technology provides great convenience for the interaction and participation of teachers and students in the teaching process.

(2) Electronic interactive whiteboard provides technical support for resource-based teaching activities. Effective use of teaching resources is an important part of skilled whiteboard technology. The whiteboard system prepares a large amount of subject material for each subject, but it is not a ready-made, fixed courseware. Teachers must form their own lesson plans based on their specific teaching designs and goals, and use the materials in the resource library to enable teachers to apply resources. The process of self-generating digital lesson plans for resources in the library becomes very convenient.

(3) The whiteboard operating system expands and enriches the functions of traditional computer multimedia tools, which further enhances the visual effect. For example, the unique drag-and-drop function, camera function, hidden function, pull screen function, coloring function, matching function, and instant feedback function in the whiteboard operation tool further enhance the visual effect, and is more conducive to stimulating students' interest and mobilization. Students' multiple intelligences actively participate in the learning process.

(4) Improve teaching efficiency and make teaching more planned. Teachers not only use whiteboards to teach, but whiteboards are also a good helper for teachers to prepare lessons. Teachers can store the teaching process on the whole whiteboard in their own folders, become the electronic archives and curriculum resources of their own subject teaching, and become the resource base for teachers to promote, summarize and reflect on the professional development of teachers.

(5) Electronic interactive whiteboard is conducive to teachers to carry out team teaching research. Studies have shown that if teachers form a teaching research group in the application of whiteboard teaching, and jointly discuss whiteboard teaching methods and strategies, such a team teaching research method is more conducive to the professional development of teachers than the teacher's own whiteboard teaching.

2. Impact on student learning

(1) Improve students' attention and understanding. Compared with traditional blackboard teaching, the visual effects of whiteboard, such as color, hiding, animation and other teaching functions, can greatly attract students' attention and use multiple intelligence theory to help students better understand and master knowledge.

(2) Facilitate students to review past knowledge content and promote students to master new knowledge. Because the whiteboard can record the teacher's past lectures and processes (including the student's learning process), it helps students to consolidate and recall old knowledge and concepts, thus promoting students to learn and master new knowledge.

(3) It is conducive to mobilizing the enthusiasm and participation of students in active learning in the classroom. Studies have shown that because whiteboard teaching emphasizes the participation of students and the interaction between teachers, students and students, the phenomenon of students not paying attention to listening, doing small movements and talking casually is greatly reduced in the original classroom teaching, which improves the students' learning quality, learning motivation and learning. Self-confidence. Beijing Experimental School teachers suggested that the whiteboard is suitable for small classes of 40 or less. In the case of a small class, the interaction between teachers, students and students is more convenient, and the interactive function of the whiteboard can be fully utilized. If it is used in a large class of 40 or more, it is difficult for teachers, students and students to interact with each other. It is not only difficult to play the interactive function of the whiteboard, but because of the limitation of the size of the whiteboard, students sitting in the back row are not easy to see the teaching content presented by the whiteboard.
