Inspired by the fantastic activities James Hollis talks about on the Teachers Love Smart Boards blog I decided to try out a “Error correction game” with my 4th year class recently.

I wanted to have some sort of scoreboard to keep track of how much each team had “won” by guessing which sentences were correct or not. I thought I’d use something like the excellent Powerpoint scorecards that Dave Foord has on his A6 training site (they’re great – check them out if you haven’t yet). Unfortunately it seems that there isn’t any equivalent for the Smart Notebook 10 software. Undeterred, I thought I’d try my hand at making one myself. I must say I’m quite pleased with the result.

Basically I used the “Flip Along Axis” animation to produce a scoreboard which students or teachers can use with any Smart interactive white board. If you have a look at James’ blog there is a good tutorial on how to do this.

This interactive scoreboard also contains “hyperlinks” so that you can insert a series of  questions (up to 10 at the moment, but you can always add more) then you can jump straight to the question you want and jump back to the scoreboard again when your students have answered it.

I hope you enjoy using my lesson. Do let me know with a comment if you find this useful. If you have any questions about how to edit the lesson, again – get in touch with a comment.

Best,
Seth.
