Using a wireless mouse with your IWB - 107 views

  •  
    I learned a tip yesterday that most certainly will help my students. It is that I should use a wireless mouse in class. Here is what I mean. You just have your mouse with you while you are in the back of the room and then when you need to do anything on your computer you can just scroll your mouse on any available surface. I've used slate's and special pointers before with poor performances. With the mouse I can just naturally move things around. Give it a try.
