The interactive whiteboard (IWB) is an easy-to-use tool that can help teachers make learning more effective. With an IWB you can bring together different resources (text, audio, images) in one place in the classroom and learners can then interact with these resources via the IWB.
IWBs can help you make your lesson more effective and more fun.

In the following six video tutorials Graham Bradford, a learning technologies teacher trainer based in Italy, demonstrates how easy it is to take advantage of the enormous potential of IWBs with your learners.
Each tutorial is divided into two parts: one shows the variety of ways you can use the IWB in your lessons and the other part, which is more technical, demonstrates the IWB tools.
