Interactive Whiteboards

Interactive whiteboards connect to a computer to create a large, touch-sensitive screen. A liquid crystal display (LCD) projector displays the computer’s image directly on the board. Teachers and students are then able to directly control the computer mouse by simply touching the board with a stylus or their finger. Research has shown that using the boards increases student engagement during the learning process, primarily due to its visual aspect (Beeland, 2002). In addition, using the boards can reduce the amount of time required for teacher instruction as compared to writing on traditional whiteboards (Ozel, Yetkiner, & Capraro, 2008).
