Conditions of use
The resources on this site are accessible only through this site. No resource may be downloaded or disassembled. Users may not download this site and place it on an offline server. The site may not be loaded into frames on your site.
Linking to this site is appreciated but all links are preferred to be to the main home page for general websites. If you wish to directly refer to a resource please link to the instruction page rather than the resource. This ensures that users see the notes to inform their use of the resource. This is only for user convenience; not doing this is less useful to the user.
Hot linking to the resources is not allowed. Sites that attempt to do this will be permanently blocked. Hotlinking is making the resources from this site appear as if they are hosted on a different site.
This site and all of the resources are owned and produced by Spencer Riley, a teacher since 2002 in Birmingham, United Kingdom.
If you would like to commision any interactive resources for projects, VLEs etc please contact me at the following email address:
This site is designed to provide teachers with access to free high quality teaching resources for use on Interactive Whiteboards.
In line with the title of this site all of the resources on it are designed to help the teacher lead the lesson. They do not attempt to provide any instruction. Their purpose is to allow the teacher to explain, demonstrate and provide examples to further the students’ understanding of the lesson. By not circumventing the teacher’s role, as many resources do, they allow the teacher to provide as much instruction and examples as he/she deems necessary at an appropriate pace.
The resources generally fall into one of two types but all are expected to be used with a whole class with an interactive whiteboard. The majority are designed to teach a single concept. These can be seen as equivalent to a presentation produced by a teacher to teach a single lesson.
The second type of resource is more general. Those in this category are intended to be used as starter or plenary activities. Included in these are the games. The games are designed to be played as whole class events. They either have a fixed goal or the difficulty is set so that no game should last too long. As such a class competition is quite possible using them. The games are not designed to played by a student alone, the activity is expected to be teacher led. Often the interface of these games will be designed to work better with a touch screen.
It is hoped that this site can meet its costs for software and hosting through advertising. There is a clear distinction between pages that are to be used by teachers and those that are to be used by students. No advertising will appear on a page specifically designed for use by students, i.e. the interactive learning resources.
