Difference of Interactive Whiteboards from
Standard Whiteboards


An interactive whiteboard is an instructional tool that allows computer images to be displayed onto a board using a digital projector. The instructor can then manipulate the elements on the board by using his finger as a mouse, directly on the screen. Items can be dragged, clicked and copied and the lecturer can handwrite notes, which can be transformed into text and saved. Many schools are purchasing whiteboards (IWB) for classrooms. However,Installation of the board can cost you much and the projector requires a number of factors to be managed including power and cabling to the components and connection to a laptop or computer. There are a number of cases where the installation of the board and projector has been inappropriate resulting in asbestos incidents, electrical safety issues, trip hazards, poor access and unstable fixtures. Interactive whiteboards can cost starting at $1,199 or Php53,835, which can be quite pricey especially if it will be placed in every classroom.
