Although no digital tool in education is completely unanimous, the interactive whiteboard continues to seduce classes from here and elsewhere. It allows daily contact with ICT, in addition to facilitating the safeguarding of collective work and promoting student motivation.

The interactive whiteboard no longer needs presentation in Quebec. A large proportion of the classes are equipped or are in the process of being equipped. In Europe, the penetration rate varies enormously from country to country. For example, UK classrooms were among the first to have interactive surfaces, and it is estimated that almost all now have them.

The first benefit that one notices by installing an interactive whiteboard in a classroom is the increase in student motivation. Their curiosity is automatically piqued. It is then up to the teacher to know how to channel this curiosity, and to keep this motivation at a high level! Indeed, its detractors assert that motivation decreases rapidly: yet the picture is in fact only a window on the integration that the teacher makes of the computer in his pedagogy.

In fact, the presence of a IWB (or TNI) facilitates the daily use of ICT in the classroom. Students are in constant contact with the computer environment, web research and the use of various digital tools. In addition, since the computer plugged into the blackboard is used to record notes and other explanations, it acts as a kind of memory for the class (this can then be shared on the class website, promoting revision and helping students. absent students, for example).

There are many models and types of interactive whiteboards. In Quebec, purchasing guidelines exist and establishments must obtain supplies from the Quebec Shared Services Center. If you are in France (or simply curious!) And want to know more about the world of interactive whiteboard, see the site http://www.tableauxinteractifs.fr. It informs you about the classic interactive whiteboard, the interactive video projector, mobile solutions like Mimio and other options.
