After looking into comments from students across Malta through various sources, it is evident that the trend is the same. The feedback being given about teachers and the amount learned in class does not tally.
The main aim of the session is to provide teachers with practical ideas on how to create and deliver content through the latest web-based Interactive White Board Software, namely Classflow. Classflow is a free to use cloud based IWB software made available by Promethean.
As time goes by, more and more students are coming to class with their own devices and expectations that these devices are somehow integrated directly through the technology available. Classflow takes this to the next level by linking all the devices in the class in order to provide a customised and personalised approach like nothing ever seen before. Through careful planning it is possible to take the BYOD situation to the next level by pushing specific content be it a quiz, poll, picture or any other type of content to the students’ devices. It does not stop there, The students themselves can push their own content directly to the board or to the Teacher’s personal device’s back end in order to facilitate feedback or even assessment. The possibilities seem quite endless. This session aims at not only increasing teachers’ awareness of these functions, but through a hands-on session, familiarise them with the features and functions of the software in order to enable them to create their own interactive lessons with the use of Classflow from the minute they leave the training room.
