Take this interactive whiteboard and . . .

TLN blogger Bill Ferriter, a.k.a. The Tempered Radical, stirred up a sort of “Emperor has no clothes” debate with his Teacher Magazine article of January 27, titled “Why I Hate Interactive Whiteboards.” When we last peeked in the room (it’s rowdy in there), there were over 40 comments, many of them long, some of them passionate. Several folks with a natural urge to mediate suggested that IWBs, in wise hands, can deepen lessons and increase student engagement. But Ferriter’s not having any of it, as you’ll see in the comments he’s sprinkled throughout the dialogue. What about you?
