To have an IWB or to not have an IWB - that is my question...

Discussion in 'Primary' started by ukprimaryteacher, Mar 10, 2008.

  1. I'd echo this - I've also seen quite effective use of Flipchart sized "proper" whiteboards placed on either side of the board. I've even some schools make these from their old regular whiteboard - cutting it in half and placing it either side of the new IWB.. so the new board is central.
    Becta produced a primary guide for guidance on using your iwb in the classroom, it's archived here; http://foi.becta.org.uk/display.cfm?resID=35753
    As Margaret from Promethean said above, if you are interested in promethean boards/software then go to Promethean Planet (www.prometheanplanet.com)

  2. Hi,

    I am an NQT nearly...and I have been reading this forum about the IWB. I am doing a research project about the use of the IWB against the normal WB and wondered if anyone could possibly fill out this survey to help me? Its my final assignment and its only 10 questions long. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you

    If you are looking for an IWB on the cheap check this link out. If the school cannot afford one I'm sure this is bound to be a crowd pleaser.
    As for convincing someone about the merits of using an IWB I don't actually think there is any statistical information to prove that they benefit learning etc. However I do think it allows a teacher to be much more creative and think of new ways to convey information.
