“The end is nigh” … for interactive whiteboards.

Sunday, February 14th, 2010 | Blogging, IWBs

Both the title of this posting and the cartoon are misleading – the end of interactive whiteboards in schools is nowhere in sight.

What I mean is that the end of postings relating to interactive whiteboards on this blog is in sight.  I’ve reached my target of 101 articles, answering some of the main questions folks are asking about these boards.  I will now cool it and only write about these wonderful tools when something relevant pops up.

Thanks for all the comments and interesting debates – a story always has two sides!

Dear Kobus,
What a sad coincidence to find your impressive collection of blogposts on IWBs on the day that you have decided to stop :-). Anyway thanks a lot, this is a very practical resource. I, personally, have opted to take a subject-specific perspestive: my focus is on IWBs in Language Education: http://www.callinpractice.net/IWB
I noticed that some commenters (rightly) asked for scientific underpinnings for certain claims. I had the same drive when my Faculty of Education moved to a new building with IWB-only rooms. Please find the PDF of my study here.
Some results cover a number of the issues discussed.

Even though I did not always have the time to respond, I have read when I had the time. I must commend you on the excellent diligence you show and the passion you have in keeping your blog running everyday. Looking forward to read the book and wishing you all the best in all future inventions. I see you as an inventor as you are always looking at discovering and exposing your readers to new things. ALL THE BEST!

Ton, thanks for the references – most useful indeed. Though I’ve ended the current series of postings on IWBs, this does not mean that I won’t discuss them at all in future … when I do, I will welcome your comments from a seasoned user perspective.
