The Effect of the Interactive Functions of Whiteboards on Elementary Students' Learning
Luo, Yi-Fang; Yang, Shu Ching
Journal of Educational Computing Research, v54 n5 p680-700 Sep 2016
In recent years, the interactive whiteboard (IWB) has been regarded as the most prominent information and communication technology auxiliary instruction device. It is touted as elevating the traditional teaching environment to a digital teaching environment because of its highly interactive features. The purpose of this study is to investigate elementary students' perceptions of their teachers' use of the different IWBs' interactive functions in class and the effect of different IWB's interactive uses on students' learning attitudes. The findings showed that teachers' use of the IWBs' basic interactive function helps students develop positive learning attitudes, including enjoyment of learning, usefulness of IWB, and willingness to learn. However, such effects from the use of the IWB's advanced interactive functions were not as clear, particularly the effects on usefulness of IWB and willingness to learn. Moreover, the students' personal experience operating the IWB had an effect on their enjoyment of learning and willingness to learn. The article concludes by offering some recommendations concerning integrating the IWB into instruction.
