Interactive Internet Resources for Whiteboards

Promethean Planet is a collection of interactive, Internet-based lessons that can be used with whiteboards. The site contains educational resources for all subjects and grade levels. The Professional Development link provides an overview of features to help you get started using the site. Interactive community features provide the means for teachers to share lesson plans and resources and connect with fellow educators. Selected lesson plans may be saved for future use. Thousands of resources can be easily searched by subject and keyword and by categories such as games, professional development, links, projects, simulations, and worksheets. Some resources are free, others must be purchased.

The Birmingham Grid for Learning website offers resources arranged by category: foundation, primary, and secondary. Resources are further arranged by subject area. You will find a variety of educational materials, from a moon globe to road safety to suggestions for innovative ideas for using whiteboards.

The Lee’s Summit, MO R7 School District Instructional Technology Team maintains a list of interactive resources for the SMART Board. Resources include SMART Board tutorials, pre-made SMART Notebook templates, and sites that provide instructional resources for use with whiteboards. Instructional resources listed on this site are primarily for elementary students. There are a few resources that can be used in secondary classrooms, most notably Freeze Ray, which contains simulations that can be used for physics, chemistry, and biology.
