“The response from students and teachers has been overwhelming! I’ve seen the class average come up and I can see a noticeable increase in student motivation, participation and time spent on task. Other students are stopping by my class on a regular basis to see exactly what their classmates are raving about and at least one teacher has asked for the Activboard instead of the ‘other’ whiteboard he previously requested,” said Barnhardt.
“The big ‘a-ha’ is how I’ve evolved as a teacher,” she continued. “I plan my lessons differently now. I’ve always been a big proponent of using assessment, but I’ve always thought of it as an ‘after the fact’ activity, rather than something you do as you go along. That’s probably the biggest benefit of the Activclassroom System — being able to use assess students as you teach. I am even more impressed with the functionality of the Activboard and accessories as time goes by. I just think they’re wonderful. I cannot imagine my classroom and teaching without them.
