What is a interactive whiteboard

What is a Interactive whiteboard?

An interactive whiteboard (IWB), is a large

interactive display that connects to a computer and

projector. A projector projects the computer's

desktop onto the board's surface where users control

the computer using a pen, finger, stylus, or other

device. The board is typically mounted to a wall or

floor stand.

THE ORIGINS OF

THE

INTERACTIVE

WHITE BOARDS

In 1986, David Martin and Nancy Knowlton were driving through upstate New York when David first described a product idea he'd been working on to Nancy. A year later, SMART was founded.

Originally, the company was the Canadian distributor for a U.S. projector company, and revenue was generated through projector sales. That revenue was directed toward the research and development of the SMART Board interactive whiteboard.

The first interactive whiteboard was introduced by SMART Technologies to the consumer market in 1991. Upon its release, the SMART board became the first interactive board to set the feature of incorporating touch control of computer applications as well as annotation over basic Microsoft Windows programs.


The origins of interactive whiteboards

The origins of interactive Whiteboards

  • In 1992, SMART formed a strategic alliance with Intel Corporation, which resulted in joint product development, joint marketing efforts and Intel's equity ownership in SMART. Other than the Intel equity investment and some small investments from family and friends, the company relied on its retained earnings to fuel growth in these early years.

  • That relationship with Intel was one of the key building blocks in SMART's history.

  • Smart Technologies promotes the adoption of SMART boards by setting SMART board systems into “Showcase Classrooms” to large School Districts. These “Smart showcase classrooms” demonstrate how SMART products can transform classrooms and improve learning outcomes. They serve as host sites for educators who are interested in implementing SMART products – and receive benefits, including professional development opportunities. Become a SMART Showcase School and share your success story.
