Since interactive and collaborative instructional technology has been introduced in the 90s, demand for interactive instructional technology has dramatically increased for both classroom and distance education. Using interactive technology to engage students in learning has also become one of the popular topics among educators in all levels of education. Numeral commercial applications are currently available. However, the issue of integrating interactive technology for engaging students in classroom is not only a ‘How to’ subject in teaching and learning, but it also became one of sensitive topics of cost-effective learning delivery. This paper presents a comparative study on classroom interactive and collaborative technologies. Pros and cons of interactive instructional technologies have also been described and discussed.
