Interactive Whiteboard is an Active Electronic Teaching and Presentation connectable board used as a touchpad to control computers from a projector.
They are used in a variety of settings:
It combines multi-touch functionality, dry-erase writing, and award-winning softwares to foster a truly interactive learning and teaching experience.
It provides users with a wide range of tools to support their instruction activities.
Includes the choice of an Ultra Short Throw Projector or Short Throw Projector with their own specific Mounting Systems.
IWB emulates both a mouse and a keyboard. The user can conduct a presentation or a class almost exclusively from the whiteboard.
Multi-user interactivity with 10 simultaneous touch points and 2-4 styluses pens.
Create and deliver interactive lessons and assessments with our award-winning software, ClassFlow and ActivInspire, included with your purchase.
Connect your computer to the ActivBoard Touch to power on the system and instantly get started.
Providing teachers and students with a 3-in-1 surface that offers optimal viewing, multi-user interaction and dry-erase writing.
Interactive Whiteboard technology extends a highly potential means for teachers to connect and communicate with students, by bringing the outer world to the classrooms and enriching the teaching process into an exciting learning experience. “Anything your computer is able to do, you can do it in front of your classroom,”
Education is steadily evolving from conventional chalk and board approach to a highly dynamic interactive learning model through integration of technology into classroom teaching and other classroom activities. The new generation student is increasingly considering classroom as an extension of technology that they use at their homes such as personal computers, emails, and Internet.
IWBs are supplied with software that provides tools and features specifically designed to maximize interaction opportunities. These generally include the ability to create virtual versions of paper flipcharts, pen and highlighter options, and possibly even virtual rulers, protractors, and compasses—instruments that would be used in traditional classroom teaching.
The Interactive Whiteboard is meant to work together with a Computer/Laptop and a Projector. The IW is powered through a USB Cable and the same cable sends/receives data from the Computer/Laptop. The Projector only purpose is to project the image of the Computer/Laptop to the IW.
Interactive Whiteboard drivers are then installed in the Computer/Laptop.
The user then calibrates the whiteboard image by matching the position of the projected image in reference to the whiteboard using a pointer as necessary. After this, the pointer or other device may be used to activate programs, buttons and menus from the whiteboard itself, just as one would ordinarily do with a mouse. If text input is required, user can invoke an on-screen keyboard or, if the whiteboard software provides for this, utilize handwriting recognition. This makes it unnecessary to go to the computer keyboard to enter text.
The research showed that interactive whiteboard technology led to consistent gains across all key stages and subjects with increasingly significant impact on the second cohorts, indicating that embedding of the technology into the classroom and teacher experience with the technology are key factors.
General feedback: The researched proved a significance improve in students performance in Mathematics, Sciences and English. Copy and download the below document to get more on the same:
