  7. 7. The Interactive Whiteboard<br />A current fad or motivational tool??<br />
  8. 8. Current claims…<br />Classroom learning is enhanced when visuals are involved1<br />
  9. 9. Current claims…<br />Classroom learning is enhanced when visuals are involved1<br />The IWB allows teachers to create material in advance, quickly retrieve information, and save information for later use6<br />
