Interactive Whiteboards - Workshops - and PBS - Oh My!



PBS KIDS (pbskids.org) has launched a collection of interactive SMART Board games for educators. The site offers games for Language Arts, Maths, Social Science and a painting game for Art. Students will enjoy participating in these collaborative, fun and engaging experiences, while exploring curriculum from trusted PBS programs such as Curious George, Super Why and Arthur. Visit http://pbskids.org/smartboard/ for more information.

The ASSET Professional Development Team would love an opportunity to come to your school or district back-to-school trainings and share these research based resources with you and your colleagues! Have you called or emailed to schedule your workshop? 602-496-1104/ asset@asu.edu Workshops can be customized to highlight specific content areas and grade levels. Look for more information about our workshops on our website.

This website is AWESOME! I use an interactive whiteboard in my classroom or SmartBoard (people call them different things). I enjoy using the SmartBoard because it gives my students a chance to engage as a class, and they do not feel embarrased to get in front of the SmartBoard. Thanks for this website, I enjoy using the synonym site...we have a daily synonym in class, so this is PERFECT!

Thanks for sharing this. I have passed it on to many teachers at my school. We have 15 SmartBoards and 8 airliners. Already I am hearing ways that they are planning on using this website with their students.
