Whiteboard

The whiteboard allows for instant communication and enables everyone to participate.

Many participants appreciate interaction with the tool; it helps to keep their attention.

Whiteboards often contain some combination of the following annotation tools: pencil, eraser, text, colour, lines, and various shapes.

Participants can usually annotate the whiteboard at the same time. They can draw pictures, write freehand, type, highlight something on the screen, put a mark on a graph and so on. This provides a creative way to communicate.

Here are some tips:

Prepare your exercises well in advance.

If only a few of your participants are writing ideas on the whiteboard, encourage the reluctant ones. You could ask them to comment on the ideas, for example.

You could create your own games. This is a great way to reinforce content, energise your audience, and have some fun at the same time.
