Interactive Whiteboard and Whiteboard Software FAQ's 

What is a smart board?

Smart Board is a brand name of Interactive Whiteboard, or IWB. Other popular brands of IWBs include Promethean and Mimeo. While not all IWBs are Smart Boards, all Smart Boards are IWBs.

What kind of impact do IWBs have in the classroom?

A 2009 study done on the impact of IWBs in classrooms showed they were associated with a 16-percentile point gain in student achievement (Marzano and Haystead 2009). In other words, students performing at the 60th percentile without the use of IWBs could be expected to perform at the 76th percentile when IWBs are utilized in the classroom.

Is there an easy way to incorporate and make sure you’re meeting state standards with IWB lessons?
