The most important aspect of using an IWB that will make it a useful classroom tool for learning seems to be the skill and professional knowledge of the teacher and the understanding that the use of the IWB will only enhance teaching and learning if it is seen as another tool, not a pedagogical approach in itself. It is used to enhance teaching, making it easier to display various resources and incorporate a range of multimedia in the classroom to add depth and meaning to teaching as well as capture student interest and attention allowing interaction between teacher and student and student and student.
