Bristol - Presentations - Magic Ink

Uploaded by Sanderin van Hazebrouck, Pädagogische Hochschule Heidelberg (Germany)


In this clip you can see two learners using the magic ink tool to slowly reveal the picture behind the black layer. The classmates guess what is in the picture. After revealing the image the group provides the rest of the class with more information on the sight. Beforehand the learners were given time to practice the presentation and tool on the IWB.

Teacher comment

Ich halte die Arbeit mit dem IWB für sehr gut und denke auch, dass in Zukunft in allen Schulen mit dem IWB gearbeitet wird. Das ist auf jeden Fall die Zukunft.

In my opinion work with the IWB is really good and I think that all schools will start working with IWBs in the future. IWBs are the future.

Learner comments

Schüler 1: Wir hatten zum Beispiel manche Orte, die auf dem Whiteboard waren, vorher noch nicht und die haben wir sozusagen neu erfahren.  Ich finde am Anfang, in der ersten oder zweiten Whiteboard Stunde war es noch für alle kompliziert. Aber jetzt haben wir es mehrere Male benutzt. Es ist jetzt leichter geworden, dass jetzt auch die Schüler damit umgehen können.

Learner 1: We also talked about some places we didn't know before so we kind of got to know them today. In the beginning, let's say the first two lessons with the IWB, it was really complicated for all of us to use. But now that we have used it a couple of times it gets easier, so also the learners can use it.
