Report into IWBs 2007
The key aims of this report are to extract some of the key
findings relating to the use of interactive whiteboards
(IWBs) in UK classrooms from the research literature.
From these findings we then extrapolate some of the key
issues and debates in order to put forward some initial
recommendations relating to more effective use, and also
some ideas and suggestions for potential future
developments in terms of teaching, training, use and
design of IWBs.
