The Battle for the Interactive White Board: The Kids Surrender

This article includes my main concern about interactive white boards before going on to describe a few uses of the technology:

The fact is, there’s only one Interactive White Board per classroom, and there may be 25 or more students. There is never going to be enough time in one class period to let everyone have-at-it on the white board.

My principal asked me just the other day why I wasn’t trying to get a IWB. My response was that I prefer technology that can be put in the hands of every student.
