Interactive Whiteboards

"An interactive whiteboard (IWB), is a large interactive display that connects to a computer and projector. A projector projects the computer's desktop onto the board's surface where users control the computer using a pen, finger, stylus, or other device. The board is typically mounted to a wall or floor stand" . (Wikipedia, 2012)


Teachers and students will usually have access to tutorials and resources for the particular technology installed in their school.  Teachers across Australia can also access IWB resources from the Scootle website.
