This article contemplates on the question that will teaching in schools really be revolutionised by theuse of interactive whiteboards, and how could it affect UK plc. Unveiled early in 2002 by the then education secretary, Estelle Morris, the radical and far-reaching Curriculum Online scheme promised to make British classrooms unrecognisable. Although schools will need to change their back-end ITsystems to accommodate such a vision, it is in the classrooms that the change will be most apparent — particularly with the use of interactive whiteboards. Already found in 47 per cent of British schools, according to the DfES's October 2002 ICT in Schools Survey, the momentum behind interactive whiteboards is gathering speed, as is the growth in the number of interactive whiteboard training providers.
