It is a new teaching tendency to use Interactive Whiteboards (IWB) to promote the transformation of teaching and learning. With such a consensus, Beijing Academy of Educational Sciences (BAES) together with Promethean and the MirandaNet Fellowship will jointly initiate a collaborative project on using IWB in Beijing schools. We organized 13 project schools to explore the strategies and good practice of how to use IWB in classroom teaching for better pupil achievement. Now there are more than 60 interactive Whiteboards installed in classrooms in Beijing, China.

This is an English lesson using an ACTIVboard in a primary school in Beijing. The students like to work on the IWB by themselves, which will stimulate their enthusiasm for learning.

BAES was providing IWB training for the teachers and staff of the project school.

Also we have provided a course on the technology of IWB for 2 – 4 hours for the teachers. And then we have arranged the workshop or conference about IWB. It is good practice for training teachers share the experience between the teachers using ACTIVboards in the lessons in the workshop.

The English lesson using an ACTIVboard was shown in the conference on the development and integration of ICT in schools, which was praised by the audience and the representatives of Promethean.
