Investigating the Effects of Interactive Whiteboards on Student Achievement
Buff, Denise Durden
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Mercer University
The purpose of the research reported in this study is to investigate whether the classroom instructional use of interactive whiteboards (IWB) in science lessons improves student learning in those areas as measured by student scores on teacher made pre and post-tests. The study examines the test scores from an IWB experimental group and a traditionally instructed control group who are under the classroom instruction of a single teacher in a 7th grade small rural school district in southeast Georgia. Comparison scores between the students, who were taught using interactive whiteboards and those who were not, might have possibly supported one of the two classroom pedagogical tools as being more effective. In addition to the qualitative data, a teacher interview, para-professional interview, and a student survey were conducted to add a qualitative piece in support of the research. In the end, the control group consistently scored higher on the assessment piece. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest LLC.
