This study explored the attitudes of teachers towards the use of interactive whiteboards (IWBs) in primary school classrooms and the drawbacks of its use. A descriptive analytical approach was undertaken in this study.The total number of participants was 30 teachers in a private primary school in Damascus where interactive whiteboards were installed and actively operated by teachers in classrooms during the academic year 2016-2017.The instrument of the study was an attitude questionnaire. The SPSS statistical program was used to analyze the study data. The results of the questionnaire revealed that teachers had positive attitudes towards the use of this technology in instruction. The results also showed that teachers considered IWBs to be useful devices for enhancing the teaching and learning process and motivating students .
Furthermore, There were differences regarding the frequency of teachers’ IWB use, teachers who frequently used an IWB had more positive attitudes towards using IWB. No differences were found
regarding teachers' years of using IWB. The current study recommended that teachers need more training to learn how to resolve technical and system problems; they also need to understand how to use all the options offered by the IWBs.
