Children today are far more comfortable with computers as learning tools than many parents and careers. They are used in all schools and are the norm for children today. Interactive whiteboards are gradually replacing traditional blackboards and whiteboards in classrooms all across the world, more teachers have dropped the chalk to teach with a mouse, stylus, and a swipe of their index finger (on touch screens). With interactive whiteboards, it has become possible to incorporate high definition images, video and graphics into lessons. This has made it easier for difficult concepts to be explained to students in a visual manner, keeping them more engaged in class sessions. Research suggests that students are more likely to enjoy a class session where videos and quality images are displayed on a high definition screen. A traditional blackboard limits collaboration as only one individual can realistically use the board effectively at any given time. It is also difficult to make annotations or add new content without wiping off the old content. A blackboard or static whiteboard can be a very good basic sketch pad, but without the ability to share information, and really interact with the content, it falls far short of an interactive whiteboard. A good analogy is that an interactive whiteboard is like a complete brain. There is a visual sketchpad, short and long term memory functions, and an easily searchable unlimited recall system, driven by associative connections, and so on. A traditional board is like being limited to having only a short term visual sketchpad. Today’s students live on their mobile devices, so it just makes sense for educators to meet them where they are and help them use their phones not just to play games, but to learn about art, math, english, geography, science, and music.
