CBI Interactive Whiteboard Project - DEC, ICS, CESI

(In case you arrive at this page via an Internet Search, click here to get to the CBI Project Homepage)


Classroom Resources for use with the Sahara Clever range of software: As part of our CBI Project, the teachers and I have created a number of files which will run with (Clever)Lynx, CleverMaths or SnowFlake Software. My thanks to the teachers who have shared these resources: these are for classroom, non-commercial use; please respect their copyright. A resource can take two hours to produce: if you use more than one of these resources, I insist(!) that you create and share your own resource: please email these to davidk@ict4schools.ie
