Lightboard To Go

Lightboard To Go

Do you always use a schoolboard to explain everything to your students, and do you always fill up the board with explanations? Do your students often ask you to ‘explain it one more time’, even though you had already clearly explained something? Then make a knowledge clip with the Lightboard To Go!

With the Lightboard To Go you can explain a formula or building block of a molecule to your students fairly easily and quickly. Visualize abstract terms, difficult formulas or complicated concepts with a simple marker.

Recording knowledge clips with the Lightboard To Go has several advantages:
Lightboard To Go

  • The technology consists of a marker, a cloth and a glass plate to draw on.
  • As a teacher you are in the picture and you are looking into the camera while you explain, so you have more personal contact and can better transfer the subject matter.
  • Simple recording with an iPad, a microphone and an app.
  • No cameraman needed and no difficult editing.

You can use the knowledge clips you make in your classroom, according to the flipping the classroom model. You transfer the knowledge, information or assignment in short videos that students can watch when and where they want. During the contact moments, understanding can be tested and applied in mutual discussions, positions or (group) assignments.
