    I use a Team Board

    Our school purchased Team Boards. They are like the Smart boards, just a different manufacturer. I use it every day. Most of the classes in our building have them mounted on the white boards, but mine is mounted on a movable stand. Pros and cons both ways. I use it for morning work. All of my Daily Language reviews or drops in a bucket have been scanned into a powerpoint and I project it onto the screen. Once the students have finished I just click a marker color and we can write and correct right on the screen. I use a LOT of interactive powerpoint where the students come up to choose the correct answer. In Math I use math blaster almost daily as a review. The kids just divide into teams and go to the board to make their choices. I also use it as one of my centers with a computer game in the laptop so that several students can play at once. I NEVER use it as a white board and use the dry erase markers that came with it. Sometimes they will not erase completely and I just don't want to risk having permament marks. Each teacher in our building has one either in their room or on a movable stand. We are expected to use them. I also use Tom Synders' Graph club and neighborhood map machine as well as time liner as whole group activities. Kidspiration activities work well with this concept. I love mine!!! Just post if you have any more questions.
