Our classrooms are adopting Interactive Whiteboards!

Long gone are the days of blackboards and chalk. Due to the increase of digital presence, many classrooms are now adopting Interactive Whiteboards (IWB). The IWB is an instructional tool that allows computer images to be displayed on the board using a digital projector. The teacher and students can then manipulate elements on the board by using their finger/pen as a mouse, directly onto the screen.Items can be clicked, dragged and copied on the board. The large screen and digital elements of the board can be used to engage the whole class. IWB’s can turn learning into interactive and collaborative work resulting in greater student engagement and motivation.
