2 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)

4 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.

6 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).

7 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.

8 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.

9 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. Wordle – Students can create a word cloud using vocabulary.

10 Delicious Bookmarks – Go to my Delicious page and click on the “smartboard” tag for 30 bookmarks related to the SMARTboard. Utah Education Network (UEN) – This is one of my favorites!http://www.uen.org/k12student/http://www.uen.org/k12student/ Florida School for the Deaf and Blind s.html#index This is a comprehensive site about the various IWB companies, links to tutorials, and great sites and software. s.html#index More Interactive Websites for IWB

11 Magnetic Poetry – Students explore poetry. Soda Play – Allows students to build animated models and images. Flashcards – Make interactive flashcards. MORE Interactive Websites for IWB
