Interactive whiteboards are an educational tool adopted with the integration of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). This technology becomes effective when teachers know interactive teaching methods that can improve the results of the teaching-learning process. This research presents the results of a training model applied to primary and high school teachers in Yanaquihua, Condesuyos, Arequipa. The proposed training model generated good results: teachers improved their interactive content making skills by 29 percent. Also, 50 percent of the interactive content created by teachers is considered satisfactory quality. Only 11 percent of teachers needed to devote more effort to achieve the objectives. This document reports the importance, the limitations, and the results of the application of the proposed training model to improve the performance and effectiveness of technologies in the classroom.
