I stumbled across this fabulous site that allows you to make post it notes on your computer that can be projected to the IWB. This allows for brainstorming activities, you can type them in or the students can type them in making it more exciting as they all have a go at typing in their answers.
I found that I could create blank post it notes and then you double click on them to type. You can be prepared before the lesson starts. You can change the colours and make the board look pretty. What a great resource this way it is larger on the screen so everyone can see. I will be adding this to my list of must use tools.
There are other features with this tool; you can also use it with other people at the same time. Can you imagine a couple of classes using it at the same time all contributing their thoughts?
