I just received my sons school newsletter this week and with great achievements and profits from the school fete at the end of last year all rooms within the school now have interactive whiteboards.
As schools move progressively into a digital learning environment, interactive whiteboards are being widely adopted in primary and secondary classrooms.
Connected physically to a computer and a projector by a USB cable, or wirelessly using technology such as Bluetooth, the whiteboard display typically emulates the computer mouse and keyboard and is operated by using a special pen, or finger touch, depending on the model. Either front or rear projection models can be used and software is available to support all learning areas.
Do you feel that this is a good idea?
Some teachers can overuse them or do not know how to properly use them.
