Tom Reardon, a mathematics teacher at Austintown Fitch High School in Ohio, is among the rising number of teachers who use interactive whiteboards in their classes. He uses the device to record his class lectures and offer sample tests that he posts on his personal website for students to download. Reardon found that the results of his students' performances using the technology were quantifiable. Reardon's work demonstrates the full power of an interactive whiteboard when it is in the hands of an expert user. It is because of this potential that school districts across the country are outfitting every classroom in every school with one, throwing their weight behind a technology they believe enhances not only the teaching experience, but also the interaction between teacher and student. However, interactive whiteboards are only as effective as the instructors using them. To use the boards to their full effect, teachers must receive proper training. This article features the positive outcomes of using interactive whiteboards and describes what some school districts are doing to train their instructors with the technology.
