Tech for teaching and learning in our new space

This Week's Tech Feature:
Some other simple features:
- It reduces paper use.
- Use the stylus, like the picture above, to prop the Boogie Board up for better viewing.
- Use the magnets on the back to temporarily attach the board to a file cabinet or other magnetic surface. You could also add Velcro to hold it somewhere.
- The low-tech aspect of this board can be beneficial because there are no games or YouTube or other activities to distract the student from just writing and it frees the iPad to be used for their AAC program so they can talk about their writing.
Stop by the Media Center this week to check out the technology, see how it's setup, allow students to try it, collect your questions to share with Jamie (email@example.com) and improve your confidence in using it in your classroom.

Who is it for?
- For students who have troubles holding the stylus, you can build it up with a foam handle, or use a Universal Cuff to keep it in their hand.
- For students who write on an iPad using the Notes app or other drawing app, but are at risk of throwing the iPad, the Boogie Board is much lighter and less likely to hurt someone if thrown.
- Use the magnets or Velcro to secure the board to a wall for students to view while getting cares done so that time can also be instructional time.
- You don't have to draw on the board. You can just use the black surface as a background to make other items set on it show up for students with CVI.
