Support for teachers

eChalk's raison d'etre is to provide tools that help teachers explain ideas and make classroom learning interesting. Applications are ideal for use with data projectors and fully exploit the touch-sensitivity of interactive whiteboards. Many activities are particularly appropriate for whole-class teaching where the teacher wishes to engage the entire group. eChalk’s resources also fully exploit the touch-sensitivity of interactive whiteboards and tablet devices.

All of eChalk's resources are authored by subject experts with first-hand experience of classroom teaching. The activities are intuitive and easy to use and they all come with guidance on how to employ them in the classroom. Many are accompanied by printable worksheets to complement the interactive content.
