This paper is about teaching summarizing skills to senior secondary students using an Interactive White Board. Summarizing skills is one of the most important skills to learn in the 21st-century era. This era is specifically marked by technological advancements in almost all fields, including education. Technology in Education has played a major role in making teaching-learning easy, accessible and fun-filled all the time. It helps in explaining a concept using real-life examples and enhances learning. We are living in a time of knowledge explosion, students studying at senior secondary levels must know what to look for in a sea of information. They must know the skills of searching, skimming, scanning and processing this information using their intellect, saving it and using it when needed. All these skills become easier to teach and learn in a large classroom when facilitated with an Interactive whiteboard (IWB). The teachers of ESL (English as a Second Language) find it difficult to teach the nuances of this skill, where the students have to compress a given passage in one-third of the original text. The senior secondary level students are preparing to enter adult life and get absorbed in the world of work. They will face work-related challenging situations, where they are needed to communicate useful information and leave behind not-so-useful ones. For that, they must know summarizing skills. The paper presents a collaborative classroom activity using Interactive Whiteboard (IWB) accompanied by non-ICT materials to teach summarizing skills.
