Education has changed dramatically for both teachers and students. With mandated testing, increasingly diverse student populations, and constantly increasing professional responsibilities it is now more important than ever for each of us to use all available teaching strategies to make sure that we effectively and efficiently teach every student. Students are digital natives and therefore expect technology to be a part of their daily life.

Interactive Whiteboards meet the need of appealing to these students by engaging them in the learning process which in turns increases participation and achievement. The Mimio is an easy to use IWB which attaches with any white board and allows for computer capture of the screen display. This course will focus on how to use the Mimio in the classroom as well as the importance of creating Mimio enhanced lesson plans.
