IWBs and Ministers at Dimboola Memorial SC

Julia Gillard MP and me!

This is a photo taken on April 16th at the Dimboola Memorial Secondary College. DMSC put on a great 2 day conference to highlight their work with the Leading Schools Fund with the focus on technology in the classroom. Dimboola teachers were passionate about the use of their Interactive Whiteboards and had them set up in just about every classroom.
Here is a snapshot of how the IWBs were used –

  • Modelling lessons
  • Interactive quizzes
  • Manipulating data
  • Shared writing
  • Reflective dialogues
  • Student presentations
  • Podcasts
  • Videos
  • Skype sessions with students from other schools

Deputy Prime Minisiter Julia Gillard was there to acknowledge their wonderful work and was available for questions, chat and photos after her speech.

Obviously I took the photo opportunity :-)
