It is not difficult to find online resources for IWB actually, but finding good resources that fit the needs that each teacher has, this is another completely different thing. 

Today I want to share with you all some interesting sites in which you can find, resources, activities (on line and to download), lesson plans, tips, links and lots of stuff for IWBs and for any subject. 

It is remarkable how useful are IWB for the ESL class. So, let's fly your imagination and think about the many possibilities you have got to use them.

  1. Hi Enric

    I'd like to suggest one more for your list: Interactive Resources by TES iboard . There's hundreds of free interactive resources!

    Feel free to email me - I'm more than happy to write a review!

    All the best,

    1. Thank you Rowan for your comment and suggestion to improve my list on "Interactive Whiteboard Resources". I'm back to work now and ready to consider new materials and resources for the ESL class and general education. It's been impossible to find your email. So I hope you read this replay. Keep in touch!

  2. I’m absolutely fascinated by interactive whiteboards. It’s amazing how technology has really evolved over the years. It’s also great to see how education is also benefiting from some of the most sophisticated technological developments. An interactive whiteboard is great because it takes away the harmful effects of the fumes from markers and dried ink, and needs a lot less effort to clean than ordinary whiteboards, since it’s basically a camera hooked up to a computer and projector.

  3. Yeah, that's right! it's a great technological gadget for teachers and students, but it also need tech support, new lamps from time to time, upgrades, and so on. And some schools, at least in my country, will have to deal with a dramatic cut of budget due to the financil crisis... Very sophisticated technology but also very expensive...

  4. Thanks for the FANTASTIC post! This information is really good and thanks a ton for sharing it :)
