Question to the group:

 In many of the articles I have read and from several of your original posts it seems as though there is a lot of advise about how to handle and Cyberbullying situation after the fact.  However, sense we all know how detrimental cyberbullying can be, is there any way we can be proactive and do something before it happens?  I know I am teaching in a first grade classroom where they all have iPads.  Should we teach about the effects of cyberbullying from a young age to try to prevent it from happening?  If so how do you recommend going about it?

     For this discussion I read a link about interactive whiteboards.  I have used an interactive whiteboard before, however I am still extremely unfamiliar with all of their features so I wanted to learn more!  In the articles I have read, it discussed how using an interactive whiteboard in your classroom is good for several reasons if you are using it the way it is intended to be used.  However the case is that many teachers are not using their interactive whiteboards properly.  It talked about one teacher even stapling students work to her whiteboard. 
     Many teachers are unfamiliar with how to use interactive whiteboards; it is a good idea to get speakers into the schools to inform teachers how to use the whiteboards.  Teachers need to find it of use to them and know how to use it properly if the school expects them to use the whiteboards.  Also the administrators should use interactive whiteboards during meetings to demonstrate their expectations to teachers.  Although these are all very good things to talk about, none of them have addressed what interactive whiteboards can do for students.  If teachers don’t use interactive whiteboards for anything else, they should use them to get students up and active with their learning.  This will help students retain the information better than if you were just to present it to them through a power point.  I would love an interactive whiteboard in my future classroom I think they provide many advantages to students and would love to learn even more.


Statistic: In September 2008, Newsweek magazine reported that more than 70% of primary and secondary schools in the U.K. have interactive whiteboards compared to only 16% in the U.S
