Interactive Whiteboard Technology

Giving teachers new ways to bring ideas to life

What if the teachers at your school could spend more time planning quality lessons and then engage with students like never before?

Across Australia, teachers spend too much time erasing whiteboards from one lesson before preparing those same whiteboards for the next lesson. They also spend too much time trying to adapt their lessons to suit individual students, only to have to erase their hard work when the bell goes.

This is valuable teacher time and energy that can easily be saved by replacing traditional ink whiteboards with interactive whiteboard (IWB) technologies. The latest tools enable a truly collaborative learning experience and give teachers the power to save and reuse their lessons whenever they like.

No wonder that 99.2% of students and 73.6% of teachers prefer using interactive whiteboards over traditional ones.1

How teachers benefit from interactive technologies

Interactive whiteboards and associated classroom technologies transform the way that teachers deliver their lessons and interact with students. Key benefits1 include:

  • Bringing the internet into the classroom – an interactive whiteboard enables full class participation in internet research and learning.
  • Integration of video and visuals into lessons – for a more engaging and powerful learning experience, teachers can seamlessly embed visuals into lesson plans, quickly switching between whiteboard and video formats.
  • Better demonstrations of curriculum content – teachers can simply teach better using interactive technologies, with the ability to give very clear demonstrations at the front of the class.
  • Ability to tailor lessons to suit different learning styles – teachers find that interactive technologies enable a more diversified approach, which leads to more effective teaching and better learning outcomes.
  • Time savings – teachers can save and reuse lessons, instead of having to wipe off a lesson’s worth of teaching material at the end of a class.

How students benefit from interactive technologies

The benefits to students are very similar to those cited above for teachers. For the students, interactive technologies deliver a more immersive and memorable learning experience – with lessons delivered using Internet, visuals, video and more.

Interactive technologies also promote collaboration and give students greater motivation to learn. Recent research has found that students who use a device with a digital pen generate 56% more ideas from brainstorming and solve 24.5% more correct answers.2

Interactive whiteboards can also help students with intellectual disabilities to gain a better understanding of curriculum content, by presenting curriculum content in dynamic and graphical ways.3
