Interactive White Board Collaboration

The use of interactive white boards expands the walls of the traditional classroom and introduces students to a new level of technology. Lessons in all academic areas will be enhanced through pod casts, online presentations, and interactive white board use which allow children to respond, and interact immediately with the information being presented. Studies have found that the use of interactive white boards with individual student question responder technology increases student engagement during lessons. Teachers who used interactive white boards were found to monitor student learning by asking questions more frequently that their match classroom (without the technology). Teachers were also able to simultaneously monitor the learning of all students more frequently than their match teacher. Teachers were able to incorporate 21st century skills in the area of communication, problem solving, and collaboration more often than their match teachers.
