IWB & Notebook

Reflection on Reading

The introduction of IWB has had an impact on teaching and learning. There are mixed reviews about the usefulness of the IWB. The most important aspect of using an IWB as a classroom tool was the fact that it motivates students, increasing the engagement levels as well as improving behaviour. IWBs can cater for different learning styles and allows teachers to present concepts in a wide variety of ways such as using multimedia tools that can promote deeper understanding.

This lesson on the IWB adapts well to whole-class teaching. It allows you to represent the task in an interactive way using a range of multimedia tools. It is also attractive and engages children, not to mention the inclusion of the video right onto the white board.
