Think Interactive Whiteboards for the Classroom

 Think Interactive Whiteboards


"The Harnessing Technology schools survey 2007 carried out in the UK by BECTa, reveals that Interactive whiteboards are in place in almost all schools (98% of secondary and 100% of primary schools); they are intensively used, and, on average, highly rated by teachers on fitness for purpose. They also state that a majority of teachers believe that use of ICT resources save, rather than cost them time; the interactive whiteboard is particularly mentioned as a time saving device." - from Wikipedia
