Jess McCulloch asked me to develop some whiteboard challenges for project she is working on. The whole challenge site will be launching on August 11th – so if you want to take part visit the Whiteboard Challenge Wiki and see what you need to do.
This is the first of my Whiteboard Challenges. The infinite cloner is a Smartboard feature, but you can clone objects in Promethean software, or stack a pile of shapes over each other. You can read more about the challenge on its wiki page.
The challenge is to investigate how you could use cloning in a lesson resource, and then try it out with a class
How can you use this? Try some of these out.
- dragging symbols onto weather maps / regular maps
- Shapes and tessellations – have a square and a triangle – how many different shapes can you make?
- Dragging labels onto diagrams
- Fridge Magnet Poetry – clone an array of connecting words
- counters on board games
There are other uses too, see if you can think of any
