Purpose – Interactive whiteboards (IWB) have become a common tool in education. The purpose of this paper is to look at some of the ways that this tool has been successfully used to engage and motivate teenage student learners with learning disabilities and difficulties (LLDD).
Design/methodology/approach – The author draws upon his teaching practice to look at how IWBs have been used to engage and motivate teenage student learners with LLDD. The article compares the author's experiences with other teaching ideas identified, in order to reflect in more depth on teaching practice.
Findings – The author concludes that interactive white boards are an effective tool for the engagement and motivation of students with learning difficulties and disabilities, despite there being very little research evidence for their use with this group in further education settings.
Originality/value – Use of the interactive white board has enabled the author to deliver ideas in a different style of teaching, developing more interactive and engaging lessons for students with learning difficulties and disabilities.
