There has been a shift in educational technology back toward the humble front of class whiteboard. Inexpensive, ubiquitous, and rarely in need of a system update, your whiteboard is an essential teaching tool...if only you could move and manipulate the diagrams you draw, like on an interactive whiteboard.

Enter Reuben and Brad, two seasoned High School Science teachers who are here to show you:

a) how to use manipulatives that attach to your whiteboard via magnets in your Biology, Chemistry, Physics or General Science classroom, and

b) how to create your own set of vector arrows, chromosomes, molecules and more to help your students understand science in a low-fi, inexpensive and very effective way.
