21st century class essentials part 1: Cyber-boards
A Cyber-board is an online page with capability of hosting a variety of media. Cyber-boards are gaining fame as the traditional classroom/hallway notice board fades away. Why? Location, location, location, is not only paramount in the real estate business but essential in the education world. As an instructor I want to find all resources that I need on one page and also access them wherever and whenever I need them. Most of the boards have mobile apps and this makes it more accessible to our students.
- Cyber-boards serves multiple purposes:
- Assist in organization-assemble all the resources needed for each lesson/presentation on one board
- Differentiating instruction-Send students to particular activities on the board.
- Review- capability of hosting quizzes and games.
- One stop shop for all important links-save time on research by saving links on one site.
- Share knowledge-Present straight from the board anywhere and anytime. No headache when a flash drive is lost or a personal device is acting up.
Try a board and share your experience.
