By 2016, the majority of classrooms in Quebec will be equipped with an interactive whiteboard (IWB) thanks to the "School 2.0: the connected classroom" of the government. The challenge of appropriating the tool and its pedagogical integration is very real. In this perspective, a new collection of books could provide good support for teachers.

The publishing house The book box offers a new series of tool books called Mastering digital tables in the classroom which will surely appeal to teachers using the IWB SMART Board.

This collection is made up of six books each offering around thirty multidisciplinary pedagogical scenarios to be adapted according to the education cycle (primary and secondary). The proposed structure is intended to support the beginner user while offering flexibility to those who already have a good command of the interactive whiteboard.

"These are integration scenarios that allow you to practice in a guided way the skills required for the use of a IWB on a daily basis", explains editor Mélanie Rizk, who unearthed these books in the United States and directed them. adaptation in French. “What is particular about this training approach is that we go beyond technique since the teacher learns by doing. "

For each level, we find the same activities, but treated in such a way as to use different skills. This way two teachers could work on preparing the same activity, but one would do it using level 5 and the other could stay on level 1.

The corresponding TBI files can be downloaded in a secure area on the publishing house's website. In addition, reproducible cards reflecting the pages of the table allow all students to participate and can be used as an assessment tool.

In addition to the activities, an informative section reminds readers that studies have shown that BITs increase the motivation of young people and promote their success. Also, it offers different ways of using the board, using a graphic organizer, taking advantage of interactive multimedia, using primary sources (videos, sounds, articles, etc.). Finally, we explain the importance of a good organization of work, for example the rigor in the naming and the recording of the files to navigate easily, the space available around the table, the adjustment of the volume of the tops. -speakers and other stuff to make your life easier.

The publishing house also offers training courses inspired by this collection. Ms. Rizk also hopes to develop the French market within a few months.
