This course will introduce you to ways an interactive whiteboard (IWB) system can support Universal Designs for Learning (UDL) frameworks and the Common Core State Standards in subjects across the curriculum. All IWB systems (regardless of brand or configuration) can be powerful instructional tools in the hands of a trained teacher to meet the needs of diverse learners. The first section of this course explores several current themes in instruction including the Common Core Standards, Universal Design for Learning, and measuring effective teaching. The next section provides a brief overview of different IWB systems before digging in deeper to build a strong foundation of IWB skills such as using the basic software tools and integrating other software and hardware. The section following shows how these skills can be integrated into multiple curricular areas including language arts, math, science, social studies, physical education, music, and art. Throughout, there are connections to common core standards in multiple grade levels and UDL differentiation suggestions. In the last section, you will apply your knowledge to create and teach a lesson of your own, using at least seven of the IWB skills you have learned in this course and identify the standard(s) it supports and at least one differentiation extension. This course includes over 40 videos of a credentialed, SMART® certified teacher demonstrating the skills and how they support instruction.
Although having access to any brand of digital whiteboard is not required, it will greatly enhance your learning experience. Most of the software applications referenced are available as free downloadable trials and are compatible with Windows and Mac operating systems.
Most lessons in this course demonstrate hardware and software features through the use of core and auxiliary videos. Core videos, which are embedded in the web page, have been created and professionally produced specifically for this course and feature a digital whiteboard system from SMART Technologies. Auxiliary videos, which can be accessed via web links, have been produced by others and feature different digital whiteboard systems.
