ActivInspire Resources

As ActivInspire resources are discovered and made available, this page will grow.  The various links to resources are both of internal resources as well as other websites that have provided useful content for  teaching and developing with ActivInspire.

The first of the resources provided are documents for learning how to use ActivInspire and items of support.  There are also articles that demonstrate how pedagogically valuable the Interactive White Boards (IWB) can be.  I hope the provision of such content is found to be useful to my colleagues and students alike.
