Technology is playing a crucial role in our lives, and it is becoming increasingly important for future generations to be digitally savvy.

Moreover, the author wanted to discover more about how students interact and study in classes with interactive whiteboards. The study's primary focus is on what occurs when Albanian teachers incorporate use ICT into their English lessons to help their students learn the language more effectively. This study attempted to shed some light on the frequency of IWBs’ usage, skills taught through IWBs, students’ perception of EFL classes when IWBs are used.
The findings of classroom-based research regarding the effective use of Interactive White Boards are presented in this paper (IWB).
More teachers should be encouraged to use the IWB on a regular basis as a result of the study's findings. When an interactive whiteboard is used in combination with additional instruction on how to use and integrate the IWB successfully, for example, it has a positive impact on students. Students should be encouraged to use technology at all times. However, in order to effectively incorporate IWBs, school administrations should consider providing constant technical assistance for teachers in the event of difficulties, as well as teaching them on how to use new softwares that go along with IWBs.
