  5. Interactive Whiteboards in the Primary Classroom

    After years of helping others teach with a variety of interactive whiteboards (IWBs), Tony DeMonte found that, without a doubt, whiteboards can increase student engagement and motivation. But too often he encountered teachers who were unsure of how best to incorporate their IWBs in teaching and who ended up using them as glorified chalkboards, or worse, not at all. DeMonte wrote this book to help those educators grasp the full potential of this powerful tool. No matter what kind of IWB you have, interactive projector included, you will benefit from DeMonte’s classroom-tested insight and advice.

  9. Brain Matters: Translating Research into Classroom Practice (2nd Edition)

    This book explains the science behind brain anatomy and physiology, bringing the biology of the brain into context with teaching and learning. Wolfe describes how the brain encodes, manipulates and stores information, and she proposes implications that research has for practice–why meaning is essential for attention, how emotion can enhance or impede learning and how different types of rehearsal are necessary for different types of learning. She also introduces and examines practical classroom applications and brain compatible teaching strategies that take advantage of simulations, projects, problem-based learning, graphic organisers, active engagement and mnemonics. These strategies are accompanied by actual classroom scenarios that help teachers connect theory with practice.
