Abstract:
This study investigates the potential of the interactive board to affect the interaction in English as a Foreign Language (EFL) classes in Greece. In Greece, the long term goals of the EFL classes are to prepare learners to cope with the demands of our times, that is, to use the target language appropriately to handle real world information in a wide range of interactional transactions. The Greek Ministry of Education, acknowledging these needs and the importance of interaction in EFL classes, proposes a syllabus that encourages communicative classrooms and activities that inspire interaction. Despite the innovations the curriculum suggests, there is research reporting that the teaching of English as a foreign language in Greece remains unchanged over the years.
