British Nutrition Foundation 2011 Interactive White Board 1.IWBs help to integrate ICT into lessons, which has been shown to increase pupil enjoyment and motivation. 2. The use of digital video, such as the cooking videos, improves pupil behaviour and on task competition, when used as part of a lesson. 3. The use of an IWB, say using our SMARTBoard resources, can increase teaching time by allowing you to present resources more efficiently.

The boards can encourage spontaneity and flexibility in lessons, for example, you could use our food spoilage video and SMARTBoard file when looking at micro-organisms at a touch of a button! 5. By integrating boards into classroom teaching, they allow greater opportunity for participation and collaboration (promoting active learning).

Activities allow you to keep track of, and determine, the pace of the lesson although you need to ensure that time/motivation isnt lost by allowing all pupils to take it in turn to come up and use the board. 7. You can revise and share materials, perhaps modifying a file to precisely meet your curricular and pupil needs this also reduces workload as the activities are already designed.

Get pupils up to the board sounds simple, but it creates a better sharing learning environment, enhancing pupil self-esteem and motivation. 10. Lastly, the use of IWB can be maximised by being confident with its use yourself and being familiar with the resources.
