Interactive White Boards (IWBs) are becoming more and more a tool of the modern classroom.

Although there are many brands, the IWB most commonly used in New York is made by SMART Tech. Most of the activities listed in this post can be recreated with a laptop and projector, without an IWB, or even recreated with an iPad (see below).
