The beauty of interactive whiteboards like AWW - A Web Whiteboard is how versatile they allow teachers to be. Use this for one-on-one tutoring sessions, for whole-class instruction with participation, or for interactive professional development or student presentations. Students join the presentation via a link and can enter any name, so teachers may want to specify what they'll accept. Keep in mind that anonymity (or at least not a real first name) may give quiet or reluctant speakers a voice. Teachers can also make a copy of the presentation for each student, which could be used for individual assessments.Continue reading Show less
With the basic (free) version of AWW - A Web Whiteboard, teachers can write, draw, highlight, type, and import images onto an interactive whiteboard. They can share the board with students via a link, giving them access to view only or to edit as well. There's also an option to give every student his or her own version, which is a great option for assessments. The subscription version allows teachers to save the boards they create and to add audioconferencing to their presentations.
Teachers have several options when it comes to interactive whiteboards, such as Explain Everything or Educreations. The main feature that sets AWW - A Web Whiteboard apart is its web-based functionality. As long as students have internet access, they can join from any device. Teachers will need to subscribe to be able to save their creations for future reference, though. Another plus: No login is required for students to participate. They can join from a link shared by the teacher and enter a name or remain anonymous.
