What Are Interactive Whiteboard (IWB)

There are many different types and makes of interactive whiteboard (IWB), but essentially, an IWB is a touch-sensitive display panel – a bit like a large ‘tablet’. It controls the mouse functions of the computer/laptop. It can therefore move the cursor around the screen – to navigate the desktop, and any applications that are being used. It can be used to click and double-click (e.g. paging through a PowerPoint presentation) and also to access right-click functions (usually achieved by pressing a small button on the side of the pen).

In addition to these hardware functions, IWBs also come bundled with software that offers very useful facilities for teaching. These include the ability to manipulate content on the board - write over the top of it, drag-and-drop objects, and most boards also provide a library of resources, from backgrounds and shapes, to maps and clipart. These are best appreciated by exploring the resources areas.
