If you are interested in booking me (Wesley Fryer) for a presentation or workshop (either face-to-face or over video) please visit my Speaking page on www.speedofcreativity.org/speaking.


Update 25 August 2010:

In 2010 I am transitioning to the website wiki.wesfryer.com for my handout and presentation/workshop links. I'm not taking content here on PBworks offline, but I have added this "update header" to all my pages as well as adding direct links to more updated versions of these pages as I mirror them / create them on wiki.wesfryer.com. There are 146 pages here on teachdigital.pbworks.com. - You can browse these in page view in addition to using the four category links provided on the homepage. Note this wiki was previously mapped to "handouts.wesfryer.com" but that domain mapping is no longer available.


Stay updated on my latest posts by following me on Twitter, my blog ("Moving at the Speed of Creativity") and Facebook.

Electronic White Boards: Engaging Students through Interactive Instruction


This is an educational workshop shared by Wesley Fryer, Director of Educational Advocacy for AT&T in the State of Oklahoma. Please share this resource, these ideas and links with others! (See the bottom of the page for Creative Commons licensing info.)



OUTLINE: Electronic white boards offer exciting potential as tools to help make instruction and learning experiences more engaging, hands-on, and interactive. This workshop will introduce teachers to the basics of setting up and using an electronic white board, as well as different instructional approaches which can be used with it to make learning more interactive and engaging. A wealth of digital curriculum and electronic white board resources are available from the hardware manufacturers as well as other sources, and these will be explored and reviewed as well.
