How Interactive Whiteboards Help Improve Teaching and Learning in Today’s Classroom
In today’s world, we have the classroom technology to make learning something that is truly engaging for students of all ages and of all learning types. An incredible tool that helps us achieve this is interactive whiteboards. Interactive whiteboards are digital displays that can be controlled by touch or a stylus, and they allow teachers to display multimedia content and even write or draw on the screen. Best of all, research has shown that interactive whiteboards better capture the attention of students and improve learning outcomes.
If you’re looking for a way to make your classroom teaching more engaging and in turn improve student learning, then interactive whiteboards may be the solution you need.
What is an Interactive Whiteboard?
An interactive whiteboard is a large display that can be easily integrated with computers and other devices. It’s an ideal tool for presentations, hybrid learning, and classroom instruction, and can be controlled by touch or a stylus. There are many different models and sizes of interactive whiteboards available on the market, so it’s important to choose one that best achieves your goals. At Parmetech, we recommend interactive whiteboards made by ViewSonic which come with their own integrated software and materials. If you would like to learn more about their features and usage, we offer personalized demos and trainings!

Interactive whiteboards are a valuable supplement to traditional instruction. They allow teachers to express their ideas using visuals, sound, digital material, and interactive games.
