  6. 6. IWB Best Practices for Learning ImprovementBest practices for implementing interactive whiteboard technology for learning improvement: Insight 1 Innovative technologies like the IWB must be introduced as a disruptive innovation, not by using it to directly compete with the teachers’ current curriculum and instructional practices, but by letting it initially compete against teachers’ ‘‘non-consumption” areas where the alternative is nothing at all.

IWB Best Practices for Learning ImprovementBest practices for implementing interactive whiteboard technology for learning improvement: Insight 2 Digital Learning Classroom promotes a learner-centered pedagogy where both teacher and ELL students are learners, which allows them to jointly produce a harvest of common themes and shared meanings.
  8. 8. IWB Best Practices for Learning Improvement Best practices for implementing interactive whiteboard technology for learning improvement: Insight 3In spite of the promising findings shown in the study, the DigitalLearning Classroom is not a ‘‘silver bullet” for improving ELL studentacademic success. The Digital Learning Classroom cannottransform an average teacher into a master teacher, anymore thanan electronic word processor can magically transform the typicalclerical office worker into a Pulitzer Prize-winning author.
