Flory, Vern
Online Submission
Purpose: The purpose of this research was to determine the effect of interactive whiteboard technology on the math curriculum in a single school district. Methodology: Six second grade teachers tracked their technology use during math instruction to be compared with student performance on a common assessment at the conclusion a counting money unit and qualitative grade data collected by the teacher. Results: The results indicate that interactive technology use during instruction is not having a positive effect on student learning. Conclusions: How interactive whiteboard technology is being used during instruction is more important than how often interactive whiteboard technology is being used. If the technology is only being used to create perfect visuals it is not being used to its full potential Recommendations: In order for schools to gain the most benefit from having interactive whiteboard technologies in classrooms staff members need to be trained on the best instructional practices for teaching with this technology.
