Pairing IXL With Your Electronic Whiteboard

Pairing IXL With Your Electronic Whiteboard

December 4, 2012


In the Classroom

Teachers, did you know IXL isn’t just for personal computers?  Try it out on your electronic whiteboard!  No matter your class size or students’ skill level, IXL is the ideal interactive tool for your classroom.

Here are some ideas for how to use IXL with an electronic whiteboard:

  • Review problems as a class. Whether you’re preparing for an upcoming test or simply ensuring students understand a particular skill before moving on to the next one, the interactive whiteboard lets you look at each problem as a whole class.  Log in to your teacher account and have the class work through a skill, using mini-whiteboards to show you their answers.  For each problem, submit the answer that the majority of students provide.
  • Have students take turns.  To make sure everyone is on the same page, go around the room and have each student go up to the board and answer a question.  As questions get harder, students can call on their classmates to help them if necessary.  If a question is answered incorrectly, use IXL’s explanation to help the whole class understand how to do it properly.
  • Make it a competition.  Encourage some friendly competition by turning IXL into a game.  Have two students race to the board to see who can submit the correct answer first, or put them into groups and send one group to the board at a time.  The team that can get the highest SmartScore in three minutes wins!
  • Monitor class progress.  Check out the Class Overview report so students can see how they’re doing as a class overall.  Data includes how much time the class spent on each category, which skills they practiced, and even their class average SmartScore for each skill.  Students can also view the Class Goals report to see how well they are staying on track as a class.

Plus—do you teach students with limited motor skills, such as very young learners, or students with disabilities?  Because students use their fingers rather than a mouse, and because the screen is so big, the electronic whiteboard is extra easy to use!

IXL is interactive as is, but just imagine the added flexibility that an electronic whiteboard can bring!

We want to know, how do you use an electronic whiteboard in your classroom?

Hi, there. Students can interact with IXL directly on the Smart Board, so they can select a a multiple-choice answer by touching it. If you have further questions about this, please feel free to contact us at info@ixl.com.

Hi! You can change your avatar by clicking on a prize from any of your award game boards and dragging it to the current avatar image, located in the top right corner of the screen next to your name.
