Whiteboards - Interactive Or...

The most important question to ask when looking to purchase an interactive whiteboard (iwb) is how the teacher is going to use it. Direct substitution is the lowest level of tech integration and is the least effective at improving student engagement and learning. Teacher training can remedy having iwb's used for only lecturing or for mainly teacher-centered use. The focus should be on the student interactivity combined with teacher-led structure.
