Presentation tools are increasing in popularity for educators who want to share ideas and information with large or small groups of students, and interactive applications are in demand for educators wishing to involve their students in learning with technology. The electronic interactive whiteboard is a device that combines both attributes, offering shared learning experiences for large or small groups, as well as for distance learning. In this article, the authors firstly consider how aviation science lessons could be designed incorporating relevant and interactive software into a sound pedagogical strategy for aviation students. Based on their observations and discussions, the authors can state that there are some benefits to aviation students and faculty (academic staff) in the Department of Aviation at Abu Dhabi University, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, coming from the use of the interactive whiteboard (IWB) in the teaching process.
