All of this describes some of the potential uses for an interactive whiteboard, or IWB as they are commonly known as. This relatively new technology has been rapidly spreading across the globe over the last few years. More and more people continue to see how effective they are in a wide range of situations, and they are extremely exciting to work with. In fact, the potential range of uses for them is nearly endless and they can be tailored to work in nearly any situation.
One of the primary uses for interactive whiteboards is their role in the classroom. Teachers can base all or a piece of their lesson plan around these tools. Students will be able to see played out demonstrations on a large scale, you’ll be able to easily access any kind of information, solutions to problem and more. Best of all you can deploy interactive features, activities, problem solving situations and more. Now students really can learn by doing, and it’s a fun and creative environment that makes it easy for new information to be taught.
Another great use for these powerful tools is to bring them out of the classroom and into the boardroom. The next time you’re in a meeting, imagine if everybody could brainstorm new ideas together. Imagine if all of your notes can be instantly saved in an electronic version, and imagine if you could constantly switch back and forth between new and old material. You and your employees will have a very dynamic tool on your hands that can make any business problem a sync to solve, and any business meeting that much more easy to work through and enjoy.
Now imagine you have to give a presentation, perhaps at a big conference, or maybe as a private sales meeting with a potential client. A PowerPoint presentation is limited to display things in a linear order of what you created. But with an interactive whiteboard tool you can easily pop up imagines, facts, statistics and demonstrations, you can create as you go, move back and forth between different material and more. Any presentation will be a winner when use you a whiteboard.
As you can see, there is a huge range of potential uses for an IWB. Whether you are a teacher that wants to create and utilise fun, feature-rich and engaging lessons and activities, you’re a businessman looking to take that corporate meeting to the next level or make a grand presentation at a conference or anything else, these are tools that have endless potential and can make you more efficient and effective.
