Smart Whiteboards

Monday 9th October, 2006
I was surprised by a post on Vowe's blog about interactive whiteboards, exclaiming how cool it was. i guess because it mentions MIT, people instantly make an assumption that this technology is new or leading edge. People going "wow, think of it's use in education".

Well, this isnt new technology and has been around for quite some time globally, indeed they have 5 of these at my local junior school for interactive learning. I believe the brand leader is SMART technologies with their SMART Board product. They're very good and they're used in our classrooms pretty much every day.

The Interactive Whiteboard, or IWB as it's known, is becoming a pretty standard fitment in UK school and studies have shown they improve classroom participation from pupils and really help the learning process.
