Session Title

Capturing the Moment (and the White Board): Enhancing Whiteboard Use for Language Classes

Description

Arabic classes at Macalester are writing intensive. Handouts and even a textbook cannot take the place of improvisation when needed. New information that students need to retain can be written on the board, but transcribing it is time consuming. Wessam El-Meligi and Fritz Vandover collaborated to find and implement the eBeam Smartmarker for Arabic elementary and intermediate classes, helping strike the balance between preserving class time and spontaneously writing new material on the board. Fritz and Wessam would like to share their experience using this device and discuss its potential for other classes, especially writing intensive language classes. Our presentation is available as a Google Slides presentation.
