If you are just starting out using the Smartboard. I suggest you go to Youtube and look for training on the Smartboard. There are a lot of youtube vidoes and they are a very good way to learn how and what to do. It takes time and patience but in the end you will see the great possibilites and hopefully fall in love with it. It has made me a better teacher.

this is really a coincidence! Yesterday, a colleague and I spent hours in our computer lab trying out our new IWB and looking for ideas how to use it with our students. We ended up rather frustrated - we found out about all the shiny new things but had no idea how to use them interactively with a class. We were also wondering about the advantage of an IWB and having a projector and a PC in the classroom. One advantage we could find was that you can save what you have done and open that file again on the following morning and continue from there.
We usually have a communicative approach in our classes and the IAW did not seem to support this approach very well.
I would be interested in finding out about how others use the IAW in a communicative way.
Thanks Saša for expressing your reservations and thanks Ronaldo for your comment and the idea you told us about.
