Science Department Head Ken Carter discusses how his department makes the most of their technology with Boardworks at Zebulon B. Vance High School, NC.
Boardworks science resources have been massively time-saving. They've saved us a heck of a lot of time in terms of preparation, and have helped us use our whiteboards efficiently, all the time. The whole science department now makes extensive use of the resources, and the whiteboards with them.
The students love coming to the front of the class to use the whiteboard and complete the interactive activities. This creates a really entertaining, engaging classroom atmosphere and helps students learn, almost unconsciously.
Today's students live by computers and have an expectation of being taught through the use of technology – Boardworks science resources are perfect for that. Boardworks has effectively and efficiently condensed curriculum topics into short, sharp, engaging presentations which keep students motivated and focused.
