Abstract

"The blackboard was one of the first joint communication devices that permitted teacher and student to view the same flexible referent at the same time" (Anglin, 1995). Nationwide, students with learning disabilities are entering regular education classrooms. As students with learning disabilities enter the regular education classroom, teachers need tools that promote joint communication of content to foster successful learning environments for them. Using interactive boards (IB) allows teachers to address the needs of students with learning disabilities such as visualization (Levy, 2002). While technology, such as an interactive board can be useful, there also needs to be a conceptual approach to teaching any students using the IB as a tool. Constructivist learning theory applied with IB integration is discussed as way to approach creating better learning experiences for students with learning disabilities.
