Interactive technology is becoming a mainstay in many classrooms all over the world. Although some teachers are finding it easy to make the transition into the digital world, others are struggling to stay caught up and work the technology into their lessons and classrooms.

Interactive whiteboards are a perfect example of a technology that has been implemented into classrooms without teachers really understanding its capabilities, or how to use it as anything more than a projector. If the technology is available, why not make sure our educators are educated in ways it can be used most effectively? This project examined interactive whiteboards in the classroom and provided strategies that are effective at improving students' understanding of the content.
