  1. I love the idea of having a database of ready to use interactive lessons. Our school is slowly placing whiteboards into each class. Some teachers are intimidated by the idea of having to create content to use on them, so I would love to be able to refer them to something like this to boost their interest in using the boards. I teach in the computer lab, but often have to try and prod teachers to try out various technologies. I think our teachers would love a membership like this.

  2. This would definitely be a resource to put the IWB into the hands of the students. After initially using my IWB for a lot of “teacher” centered instruction just to get to know the software, I’m now focusing on finding materials to get students using it interactively and in particular, I would use it for remedial instruction of math concepts.

  3. Here is how I would use a subscription to Starrmatica (to the tune "If You're Happy and you Know it)
    RtI, en-rich-ment, even core

    That makes learning fun!
