I believe I have a good experience with IWB’s as I have supported Interwrite, Teamboards and Smartboards in my current role as a systems administrator and have found these to be relatively similar. The current technology we have implemented is the Epson interactive projector, that uses a normal whiteboard with infrared sensors sensing movement, they are fantastic resources for the classroom, have a look at this clip to see what they can do.
This being said I have had limited access to using IWB in my pedagogical practice as my last three placements either didn`t have an IWB or didn`t have the cables to use the resource. I look forward to utilising them further in my practice as I believe using IWB has the potential to increase students’ understanding through the use of all semantic features and the opportunity for the students to take part and explore.
