The Impact of interactive
Whiteboards in Education
Multimedia Presentation ProjectCreated by Diana AbsatzEDUC-7101-1/EDUC-8841-1 Diffusion and Integration of Technology in Education1An interactive whiteboard (IWB), is a large interactive display that connects to a computer and projector. A projector projects the computer's desktop onto the board's surface where users control the computer using a pen, finger, stylus, or other device. The board is typically mounted to a wall or floor stand. What is a Interactive whiteboard?
Why Teachers Need to Use an Interactive Whiteboard?
THE ORIGINS OF THE INTERACTIVE WHITE BOARDS
In 1986, David Martin and Nancy Knowlton were driving through upstate New York when David first described a product idea he'd been working on to Nancy. A year later, SMART was founded.
Originally, the company was the Canadian distributor for a U.S. projector company, and revenue was generated through projector sales. That revenue was directed toward the research and development of the SMART Board interactive whiteboard.
The first interactive whiteboard was introduced by SMART Technologies to the consumer market in 1991. Upon its release, the SMART board became the first interactive board to set the feature of incorporating touch control of computer applications as well as annotation over basic Microsoft Windows programs.
IWBBack in 1991 no one knew about interactive whiteboards, much less why they might want or need one. It took substantial effort to inform people about the new innovation and its benefits. Educators who needed to give lectures at a distance were among the first to recognize the potential of the interactive whiteboard, as they had been giving lectures using low-speed modems and early versions of operating systems that were often unstable, slow and offered few graphics capabilities.
Three patents were granted by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in recognition of this innovation.
4In 1992, SMART formed a strategic alliance with Intel Corporation, which resulted in joint product development, joint marketing efforts and Intel's equity ownership in SMART. Other than the Intel equity investment and some small investments from family and friends, the company relied on its retained earnings to fuel growth in these early years.That relationship with Intel was one of the key building blocks in SMART's history.

Intended Audience Interactive Whiteboards Interactive Whiteboards were introduced as an innovating presentation tool to classrooms at all levels of education, to corporate board rooms and work groups, to training rooms for professional sports coaching, in broadcasting studios and others.
Smart Technologies promotes the adoption of SMART boards by setting SMART board systems into Showcase Classrooms to large School Districts. These Smart showcase classrooms demonstrate how SMART products can transform classrooms and improve learning outcomes. They serve as host sites for educators who are interested in implementing SMART products and receive benefits, including professional development opportunities.
