Are you looking for a new tool to help your elementary and middle school students review essential content? Electronic Learning Boards can be used to review almost any topic in math in elementary and middle school classrooms.
The approach is very simple. The problems are listed on the left side of the board and the answers are listed on the right side of the board. The student is instructed to solve the problems using manipulatives and then match the answers to the questions by using the two wires that are connected to the dry cell and the wire. When the student touches the correct answer with the end of the wire, the small bulb lights up. In this way the student gets immediate feedback while the teacher is free to work with the other students.
Electronic learning boards are made out of triple wall cardboard, measuring 36” high by 48” wide. It does not look very fancy, but triple wall cardboard is the best material I have found for constructing electronic learning boards, because it is light-weight, yet extremely durable. Your electronic learning board will come pre-assembled with all of the wiring connected. All you have to do is open the hinged board, insert the bulb into the bulb holder and the dry cell into the dry cell holder, and slide the two bases onto the bottom. You will also have to provide the manipulatives that are specified in the directions (which most schools already have).
Each electronic learning board comes with one set of directions, questions, and answers for a first grade review activity entitled Can You Add These Numbers?. Materials for other grade
levels and topics are currently under development and will be available soon. You could also develop your own materials for other topics you want students to review and substitute
them for the materials that come with the board (i.e., division facts, angles, fractions, or geometric shapes).
The price of each electronic learning board is $103.45, which includes shipping and handling to any location in the continental United States. This may sound high at first glance, but when you consider the potential benefits for your students, electronic learning boards are a good investment. Each electronic learning board that I build requires approximately $45 of materials and about 4 hours of labor to construct, so the profit margin is very small. My main concern is to get as many of these into the schools as possible, because of how effective they have been in classrooms where they are already in use. Students love working with the boards and teachers love having the opportunity to use a different review strategy with their students.
