The use of interactive whiteboards in education<br />Created by: Monica Dague<br />In partial fulfillment of the requirements for MAED 5040<br />
Interactive whiteboards (IWB) is an interactive display board that is large and displays information for a whole class to see.<br />The IWB works along with a projector that is connected to a computer which projects the images from the computer screen. <br />IWBs can be mounted permanently on a wall or moved around on a stand.<br />What are interactive whiteboards?<br />
IWBs can be used for presentations, interactive lessons and games, projecting videos and photos, and browsing the web.<br />IWBs allow for students to interact with their learning.<br />IWBs allow educators to use a variety of technological resources at the touch of the screen.<br />What are they used for?<br />

Depends on the educator implementing the device<br />Proper training<br />The level of training the teacher receives<br />Enthusiasm towards technology<br />Willingness to learn<br />Are IWBs effective in the classroom?<br />
Proper training for the IWB<br />Teachers who receive proper training will have a better understanding of the unlimited opportunities that the IWB can bring into a classroom.<br />Teachers need to become familiar with the IWB before implementing it into the classroom.<br />Teachers who are familiar with the IWB have found the pace of their lessons to increase and students have become more excited about their learning.<br />
New opportunities available<br />Avoid utilizing the IWB as just a writing tool<br />Interest in the IWB from the teacher, will have an effect on the level of interest that students will have with learning<br />Center of learning<br />A whole new world of learning<br />
Comparing lessons<br />Implementing the IWB<br />Not implementing the IWB<br />More whole class teaching<br />Quicker pace<br />More closed questions<br />Student focus<br />Student motivation<br />Student concentration<br />Creativity<br />Student-centered<br />Slower pace<br />More open-ended questions<br />More group work<br />Less student involvement<br />
Incorporate photos and videos<br />Utilize information from previous lessons<br />Introduce experiments<br />Visual learning<br />Tactile learning<br />Auditory learning<br />Uses from research<br />
Fear of getting the wrong answer<br />Vulnerability and ridicule from peers<br />Teachers become mediator<br />Familiarity with programs and software<br />Less higher level thinking skills<br />Not using the IWB regularly<br />Tripping over stand legs<br />Safety issue with cords<br />Re-orienting the board<br />Negative Aspects of the IWB<br />
Planning <br />Preparation<br />Teaching<br />Student involvement<br />Data retrieval<br />Available resources<br />Speed of accessibility<br />Creativity within lessons<br />Positive impact for teachers<br />
Quality of lessons<br />Expectations<br />Involvement in lesson<br />Improved attitude and response to lessons<br />Concentration level<br />Motivation<br />Focus and attention during lessons<br />Positive impact for students<br />
Creative thinking skills<br />Higher level thinking<br />Fear of getting the wrong answer<br />Vulnerability and ridicule from peers<br />Negative impact for students<br />
Plan ahead<br />Maintain a well-resourced lesson<br />Adapt to any unforeseen circumstances<br />Be enthusiastic!<br />Most effective use of the IWB<br />
