We Forgot about Boards and Markers in Mathematics

Both in my MYP and DP classes, the use of board and markers has become history. The board has evolved into a screen of an iPad. In other words, we still use the good old friend from time to time, but not more.

As a teacher, I am not turning my back on my students for I hold the board in my hand, and I am facing students. Working in this manner also allows me to share “the board” with my pupils and, while doing so, if there is a need, we can share classwork with each other.  In addition, when working in this manner students have more chances to use and improve their language skills.

As a matter of fact, when the iPad is in the hands of a learner, I can function as a subject and a language teacher at the same time.
