Interactive whiteboards

  1. 1. Interactive Whiteboards (IWB) Done by: Nashwa Mohsin Jadad ID:200600318 EDUC365
  2. 2. IWB <ul><li>Interactive Whiteboards are phenomenal tools. Don't know what an interactive whiteboard is? Perhaps you've heard of some of their brand names - SMART Board, ActivBoard, eBeam, Mimio, and Webster are some of the most widely used at this time. </li></ul>
  3. 3. What is IWB? <ul><li>An interactive whiteboard is a piece of hardware that looks much like a standard whiteboard but it connects to a computer and a projector in the classroom to make a very powerful tool. When connected, the interactive whiteboard becomes a giant, touch-sensitive version of the computer screen. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Instead of using the mouse, you can control your computer through the interactive whiteboard screen just by touching it with a special pen (or, on some types of boards, with your finger). </li></ul><ul><li>Anything that can be accessed from your computer can be accessed and displayed on the interactive whiteboard </li></ul><ul><li>for example Word documents, PowerPoint presentations, photographs, websites or online materials. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Using special software included with the interactive whiteboard, you can also interact with images and text projected on the board: rearranging them, changing their size, color, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>This offers a much more interactive experience than using a standard whiteboard or using a data projector alone. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Used of IWB <ul><li>They are used in a variety of settings, including classrooms at all levels of education </li></ul><ul><li>corporate board rooms and work groups </li></ul><ul><li>training rooms for professional sports coaching </li></ul><ul><li>broadcasting studios and others. </li></ul>
