The 4th Face-To –Face Siming District COP Program
Initially launched by Siming District and Capital Normal University at the beginning of this year, the 4th face-to –face Siming District COP Program has been carried out recently. The training manager from Intech’s Elite Training Team was in attendance for the program and offered training as requested which was centered around how to create courseware with the help of an electronic whiteboard to create an engaging class and improve interactivity between the teacher and students.
Carefully designed training materials based on the data collected from the investigation carried out prior to the COP program into the application of the electronic whiteboard by the teachers from different grades and subjects at a wide variety of schools, plus a couple of typical teaching cases, drew the attention of the teachers in attendance throughout the training, who took active participation in the discussion following the training, sharing answers to the frequently asked questions. The training not only helped to familiarize the attendees with the operation of the electronic whiteboard, but also raised their awareness of the changes brought about by the electronic whiteboard to the traditional teaching methods and styles.
