"Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!"(Theodor Seuss Geisel)

Interactive whiteboards: many classrooms have them, but what are they used for? Are they used for writing class notes, watching educational videos, completing digital worksheets, practicing math facts and working on spelling words? That’s good! Or are these very expensive classroom tools used to create, evaluate, analyze and apply with classroom content? That’s even better! Participants in the Boards and Blooms workshop will spend the day taking curriculum standards, interactive whiteboard software and Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy and designing student centered learning activities that increase student use of higher order thinking skills.
