Interactive White Boards


An interactive white board is a device that creates a large touchscreen computer screen that is visible to the entire classroom. The computer can be controlled at the screen using either a pen or a finger. Anything that can be shown on a computer monitor can be displayed for the entire class on an interactive white board.
