Examples of how Embedded Browser can be used during presentations for teachers

Teachers use the internet and educational websites in various ways during their lessons to enhance the learning experience for their students. Some common ways that teachers use the internet to present information during their lessons include:

1. Interactive simulations:

Some educational websites provide interactive simulations that allow students to explore and manipulate concepts in a hands-on way.

Example: A science teacher might use an interactive simulation from PhET Interactive Simulations to demonstrate how the properties of gases change as temperature and pressure are altered.

2. Infographics and data visualizations:

Many educational websites provide infographics and data visualizations to help students to better understand complex concepts or to see patterns in data.

Example: A history teacher might use an infographic from the National Archives to illustrate the causes and effects of a particular historical event.

3. Virtual field trips:

Websites such as Google Earth and Discovery Education provide virtual field trip experiences that allow students to explore and learn about different parts of the world without leaving the classroom.

Example: A social studies teacher might take their students on a virtual tour of historic sites or famous landmarks using Google Earth.

4. Videos:

Educational websites such as YouTube and Khan Academy provide teachers with access to a wealth of instructional videos that they can use to introduce new concepts, reinforce ideas, or provide additional examples.

Example: A math teacher might use a video from Khan Academy to explain how to solve a particular type of equation.

5. Research:

Teachers can use the internet to find additional information, answers, or references about a topic they are teaching. If a debate needs settling, or a question is posed the internet, just like in daily life, is a great resource for lesson support.

Example: A debate arises or a question is posed during class that needs settling. The teacher can quickly open Google to search the class’s question.

6. Games and Interactive activities:

The internet provides various interactive activities such as quizzes & games that teachers can use to engage their students and make learning fun. Educational websites such as EdPuzzle or PBS Learning Media provide games and interactive activities that help students to practice and reinforce concepts they are learning in class.

Example: An English teacher might use a game from Funbrain to help students practice identifying different parts of speech.

With ClassPoint’s Embedded Browser, you can search and use the internet without leaving your presentation or breaking your flow. This convenient presentation tool can also impresses your audience! And for teachers, incorporating the types of resources above, can help make their lesson more engaging and interactive for their students.
