The aim of this paper is to design interactive teaching strategies with Interactive White Boards (IWB) and examine their effectiveness in teaching biology. Following the trend of integrating the IWB in teaching, in this study we tried to stress the advantages of IWB to provide better and effective teaching of biology in schools. The research was conducted with students from third year in two secondary schools in Stip. Students were divided into two groups. IWB-group (n = 35) – which used white board in biology classes and T-group (n = 35). T-group was the control group which applied classical teaching where the teacher used Microsoft PowerPoint slides on the screen. The results showed that compared with classical training, IWB is more effective in presenting topics of biology, or, more specifically, the theme “cell division” which was processed with both groups of students. Some limitations and areas for improvement were also noted. These results can be used to inform educators on possible applications of the IWB’s use not only in biology but in other school subjects as well.
