Yes indeed, you do have to keep an I on your new WB! In my experience Interactive White Boards are not any more Interactive (in an automatic sense) than any other White, Blue, Green or even Black board. As anybody who has ever had to re-boot a computer knows, technology reacts just as well to a good kick from a boot as it does from its own over helpful suggestions as to what has gone wrong: in other words, a little common sense goes a long way. It is very much the same with IWBs to my mind. They are only as interactive as the teacher using them and the activities that teacher has developed around them. The technology and software may faciliate interactiveness but so does chalk (and even cheese if you think hard enough :-)) Here are two links that develop the theme a little further.
