Advantages of IWBs
Advantages for Students
  • Increased Participation
  • Increased Motivation
  • Opportunity to delve into complex and abstract

Advantages for Teachers
  • Flexibility
  • Multiple Resources
  • Reaches multiple and diverse students

Disadvantages of IWBs
Disadvantages for Students
  • Quickly lose appeal
  • Less time on content
  • One note lessons

Disadvantages for Teachers
  • Technical Issues
  • Teacher Training
  • Shifts attention from student to technology

Effectiveness of Smart Board Technology
Effectiveness of Smart Board Technology
  • As a tool for non-linear learning
  • By accessing text and media
  • Ability to move back and forth among pages
  • Ability to present the same information in
    different ways

Effectiveness of Smart Board Technology
  • Combines the benefits of interactive computer use
    with group learning
  • Internet access
  • Videos
  • Large screen

Effectiveness of Smart Board Technology
  • As a tool for multi-modal teaching
  • Descriptive
  • Experimental
  • Mathematical
  • Figurative
  • Kinesthetic

Effectiveness of Smart Board Technology
  • As a tool for teaching children with disabilities
  • Manipulatives
  • Auditory and Visual Cues
  • Interactive video
  • Various assessment strategies

Effective Use of Smart Board Technology
Effective Use of Smart Board Technology
  • Must have adequate training and time to find
    appropriate software
  • Provide incentives to increase IWB skills
  • Vendor training
  • In-service training
  • Tutorials
  • Cooperative learning among teachers

Effective Use of Smart Board Technology
  • must be an integral part of the lesson, not
    something tacked on to be fun
  • Create lessons on the IWB
  • Use features in the software
