Interactive Whiteboards and the end of EQ magazine

with one comment

After 15 years of publishing educational material of the highest standard, EQA magazine is to close. The Curriculum Corporation (Australia) who publish EQ have said, “With the advent of a National Curriculum in 2011 the time has come to close the pages of EQ Australia in print format”. I still don’t understand why.

However, the website will apparently remain, and a couple of articles from each edition are available for free download. EQ Australia

The current issue, the second-to-last, has a terrific article by Penny Ryder titled “An Interactive Whiteboard…What Next?” In this piece, Panny presents ten very straightforward things to do with an IWB for a teacher who is new to this technology – and there are plenty of them about!

An excellent piece – thanks Penny! You can read her blog here.

  1. Thanks for the mention! I’m glad you enjoyed my article. Sad story – I’m actually seeing out the rest of this year without an IWB because the optics have gone on my data projector and it’s VERY costly to fix! In the meantime, I’m using my teaching partner’s IWB for those must have lessons. 🙂
