Student Perceptions of Interactive Whiteboards in a Third Grade Classroom
Genesi, Deanna Joy
Online Submission, M.Ed. Thesis, Cedarville University
This qualitative project presents students' perceptions of interactive whiteboard (IWB) usage in a third grade elementary classroom. The use of the IWB was alternated with the overhead/chalkboard on an ABAB design. The study was based on semistructured interviews of 19 rural, elementary school students. The interview questions focused on the following constructs: benefits, limitations, and suggestions for improvement. The results established that students found the IWB to be interesting, fun, and engaging because it involved multi-media aspects and improved visuals. The study also noted the students' perceived limitations of the IWB and areas for improvement. The results of this study can be used to inform other educators on possible uses for the IWB in the primary classroom setting. Appended are: (1) Interview Questions; and (2) Parental Consent Form.
