This study aimed to investigate the effect of using the interactive whiteboard on the academic achievement of sixth-graders in the subject of geography in the schools of Bani-Kenana District in Jordan. To achieve the goals of the study, the sixth-grade students were chosen from a number of public schools affiliated with Bani-Kenana District in the Irbid Governorate in the first semester of the academic year 2019/2020. The study sample was chosen from two divisions (60 students) of the sixth-grade learning geography and divided into control and experimental groups. Students were taught the first unit and attempted a pre-test using the traditional teaching method for the control group. Then, the experimental group was taught the first unit using the interactive whiteboard and attempted the same test (the pre-test). The results showed statistically significant differences between the means of students’ grades of the experimental group and the control group, and the results were in favor of the experimental group, which was taught using the interactive whiteboard.
