Interactive Whiteboards

Benefits of IWBs

“Many language teachers enjoy creating their own digital materials. Using an interactive whiteboard, they can use shapes and colours in imaginative ways, changing the background colour to hide and reveal text for instance; they can easily insert audio clips and web-links into their pages.”Pete Sharma, New Inside Out Digital Guidebook

This is just one of the many benefits of using IWB materials in your classroom. Others include:

  • Encourages collaborative learning
  • Engages different learning styles
  • Enables personalised learning
  • Motivates both students and teachers
  • Reduces lesson preparation time
  • Allows a wider range of media
  • Best option for class-wide presentations
  • Can also be used as a normal whiteboard – practical and familiar
  • Creates a sense of shared ownership through interaction
  • Develops a more student-centred approach to learning
