The voting is interesting! Obviously schools with them use them regularly for the most part.... or they don't have them. Sounds like a good investment going on the voting. :thumbup: We have one in our science lab & it gets used nearly every lesson. It stays set up & the teachers just use their lap tops to hook up at the beginning of the lesson. Not much setting up that cuts into preparation time! :clap3:

Hey Jen

We have interactive whiteboards in all 3 of our labs but I must say they do not get used very often. Our physics teacher found it incredibly useful, used it every lesson, recorded his lectures on it (don't ask me how) and sung its praises regularly but he resigned last month so it hasn't had much of a work out since. The other senior science teachers are of the older generation and don't really feel comfortable using the interactive whiteboards. The chemistry teacher said to me that she is retiring in a few years and just doesn't feel like its worth it.

The junior science teacher likes playing dvds on it but ours is a small school and if teachers want to use laptops they have to supply their own. He doesn't so he only uses it when can borrow a one.

Peace
Fio

It would be so good, to re do this survey, now so many of us have had refubishments. Ours are used every day. But a year ago which is when the survey was done, we did not have any.

Yeah, us too. We now have four in the four refurbished labs. Used all the time.

We are gradually installing them in each science Lab as the school can afford. The teachers use them all the time.
After seeing a demonstration of the Virtual physics programs from The Logical Interface, I am pushing for them to be installed asap.. this virtual software works on an ordinary whiteboard, but works much better with interactive....
hey guys you HAVE to see this stuff.. brilliant especially 'Krucible' ... :clap3:
