  What is an Interactive Whiteboard?
• “An interactive whiteboard, or IWB, is a large
  interactive display that connects to a
  computer and projector. A projector projects
  the computer's desktop onto the board's
  surface, where users control the computer
  using a pen, finger or other device. The board
  is typically mounted to a wall or on a floor
  stand.” (definition from Wikipedia)

               More about IWB
• Interactive whiteboards are being used in the
  corporate and educational environments to allow for
  collaboration and interaction amongst groups.
• Out with the old and in with the new! IWBs are
  replacing chalkboards and white dry-erase boards.
• IWBs work off of electromagnetic (Promethean),
  infrared, or special touch resistive (SMART)
  technologies.
• The idea of using an IWB is to allow the teacher and
  students to interact with content directly from the
  board and not have to stand next to the computer.

     Benefits of IWB in Education
• “The majority of pupils appeared to be focused when
  the board was being used and were keen to volunteer
  to do things with it. So I started to use it regularly”
  (Forrest, 2005).
• “The findings, largely based on studies conducted in
  the UK, found that using whiteboards creates a faster
  pace in the classroom, enhancing interaction between
  teachers and students. The result? Improved test
  scores, especially in English, math, and science,
  compared to student performance without interactive
  whiteboards” (“Whiteboards Boost Learning” 2007).
      More Educational Benefits
• Allows students to be “front and center in
  their own education” (Fletcher, 2006).
• “The technology enhances their *teachers’+
  lesson plans with multimedia features and
  interactivity that captures students' attention
  and motivates them to learn” (Gatlin, ____).
• Students live in a “plugged-in” world; the IWB
  brings that technology into the classroom.
  Simple Strategies for Using IWB
• Hide and Reveal – teachers can use simple
  animation or layering techniques to hide
  answers, objects, pictures, etc.
• Flash Media – teachers can take advantage of
  the built in flash activities in IWB software,
  such as the Lesson Activity Toolkit in SMART’s
  Notebook software.
• Websites – there is a plethora of interactive
  educational sites which are perfect.
    Interactive Websites for IWB
• Ether Pad – Students can write a collaborative
  story with other classrooms or e-pals.

• Google Earth – Students can locate and view
  places around the world.
