Interactive whiteboards will be effective classroom tools if the teachers who use them are effective, say some education experts, adding that the usefulness of the technology is in teachers' hands. "An IWB is just a tool, and if it's not used correctly, you can't blame the tool, you have to blame the user," said school-based technology specialist Patrick Ledesma. "If you're a teacher who used to lecture at a chalkboard, you'll do the same with the IWB."
