Want to create mini-lessons that engage your classroom and promote student participation? Benchmark Universe’s customizable e-posters will educate your students, while allowing them to focus more deeply on the content you’re presenting.
1. Adding Links:
Find a cool website you want to share in your lesson? Copy and paste the URL into your e-poster/whiteboard and access sites quickly, without the need for prolonged web browsing.
2. Creating Notes:
The “Close Reading Notes” sidebar acts as a personalized storage space for your ideas. Feel free to jot down comments or create self-reminders with BU’s digital self-stick notes.
3. Using Text Boxes:
This useful feature allows you to create customizable text boxes anywhere on an e-poster—the possibilities are endless!
4. Designing Shapes:
Get creative—add frames, shapes, and lines all across the page! These shapes and designs will help enhance specific content, bringing your students’ attention to certain sections of the poster.
5. Shading Areas:
The shading tool acts like a window shade to block out certain areas. You can remove the shade at the appropriate time to reveal images or portions of the text.
6. Annotating with Your Digital Toolbox:
With the pen and highlighter tools, you can mark up anything on the page. You also have the option of adding different widths and colors to add more dimensions to your e-poster.
7. Adding Pages:
With one click, you can add extra pages to keep your ingenuity flowing. To make pages even more interactive, try embedding YouTube videos. When you add a page, just plug in a YouTube link and the video will soon appear in your poster’s thumbnails.
You’ll soon discover how easy it is to use Benchmark Universe’s e-posters. Utilizing their features will develop your classroom’s interest and understanding of the material, while creating a fun and beneficial digital experience.Tags: Benchmark Universe, Instructional Technology, Using Technology in the Classroom
