Interactive Whiteboards

Interactive whiteboards: case studies

As more schools were fitted with interactive whiteboards and display technologies it was apparent that there was a real need for teachers to play an active role in specifying the ways in which this extremely powerful tool was installed and used. The technology can effect profound changes in the ways in which our students learn, the ways in which we teach and, more fundamentally, the ways in which we organise the curriculum and our schools.
