BBC History Time Tunnel Flash Site ("Should")

I used this BBC Time Tunnel site in class yesterday with a group of upper-intermediate teenagers, as part of English File Upper Intermediate lesson on "should"

I focused on the 1950s living room and the main question was: "What shouldn't be there?"

It worked well. Afterwards, we used a snapshot of the living room to focus on the structure / vocabulary


I've opened up this blog to record my ideas and to post links, info, tips that I find about the exploitation of the interactive white board in EFL.


What is an interactive white board?

It looks like a normal whiteboard, but it's connected to a computer and a data projector. The projector displays the computer's desktop onto the interactive whiteboard (iwb) surface. Everything you normally see on your monitor is displayed on the iwb and using special software and a special pen, you can interact with the board.
