The primary factor in quality teaching is, of course, the skills of teachers themselves. However, the ability to use technology to facilitate an innovative learning experience undoubtedly plays a positive role.
Whiteboards certainly encourage creativity in teaching. Moving away from conventional learning methods, Martin Williams, Teaching Awards 2002 national winner, used an interactive whiteboard to create "Who wants to be a historianaire?" His quiz, based on the popular TV show, engages pupils and helps remove barriers to learning.
