Global Digital for Interactive Whiteboards
The design of Global Digital is based on extensive research done with teachers actively using Interactive Whiteboards (IWBs) in their classes, to discover what they actually needed in order to teach most effectively. This led to the development of one of the most sophisticated yet easy-to-use IWB language software packages available.
Global Digital allows the teacher to access and display an interactive version of any page from the Coursebook in front of the class. All of the relevant audio, video and reference materials are instantly accessible right on the page. This digital material is ready to use, requiring no preparation from the teacher, and is designed to help the flow of the lesson.
A digital ‘blank canvas’ which can be accessed at any point during a lesson. A teacher can build up a complete repository of teacher and student-generated material to support each unit of the Coursebook. This authoring facility offers the creative teacher the best of both worlds – quality material from the coursebook working seamlessly alongside a locally produced, personalized and reusable materials bank. Materials produced in the Teacher’s Area can be saved (to a USB thumb drive, a local network, etc.) and easily shared with colleagues.
Digital game templates are easily customized with your own content, but require minimal preparation time. Students can play motivating language games and at the same time recycle material selected by the teacher.
Global Digital will work with any make of IWB, as well as with a simple computer and projector combination – all of the tools for interacting with the content are built into the software itself. Global Digital is compatible with both PCs and Macs.
