Leisure: using the pen tool to find the vocabulary within a learner's piece of written workUploaded by Emily Hillier, Cardiff Metropolitan University (UK)
This clip took place in the context of a Welsh lesson practicing the different vocabulary associated with leisure time. This clip was taken from the first activity of the lesson whereby the learners were asked to identify certain vocabulary associated with leisure time from a learner's piece of work. The learner had written a piece of work related to what they did at a party during a previous lesson and the teacher scanned and pasted the work onto a flipchart to present to the whole class. The learners used the pen tool to underline the correct words in the text.

I used the IWB in this extract to revisit vocabulary learnt in the previous lesson. The IWB also allowed for all children to see others work and it provided an assessment in order to recognise those children that were unsure of particular vocabulary. The use of the IWB also allowed the children to develop skills in annotating work.
This use of the IWB enabled them to all participate actively within the extract and demonstrate their understanding of prior learning through annotating work. It provided the children with a focus and they remained engaged in their learning.
It's bigger and it's much better and it's more fun to use the IWB.
I enjoyed circling and underlining welsh words ...cos it's quite challenging.
It's easier because if we all looked at the computer it wouldn't be as big and we wouldn't really understand it ... we wouldn't be able to circle it on the computer either.
Because [the work] is on the IWB, you can't rub out the work ... but you can rub out any mistakes.
