Gone are the days when reading and writing consisted solely of printed text on paper. Now, electronic text encompasses much of what we read and write on a daily basis. This electronic text is provided to us by the World Wide Web in various forms such as emails, blogs, Wikis, and social networks. It is vital that schools stay up-to-date by incorporating this technology into the classroom and thus developing students’ reading and writing abilities. The interactive whiteboard is one such tool that can be used throughout the five stages of the writing process to enhance students’ writing.
