Using Interactive Whiteboards to Enhance Mathematics Teaching
Kent, Peter
Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, v11 n2 p23-26 2006
Over the past three years, Richardson Primary School has transformed its entire educational program based around the widespread introduction of interactive whiteboards (IWBs) into the school. A review of this initiative states that "Richardson is the first school in the ACT, and probably Australia, where the total school community, the students, staff and parents, has embraced a new approach to the use of ICT, which enhances the holistic education of the students... The Richardson effort represents a near revolution in the use of ICT in schools". Early in 2005, Richardson Primary School was awarded one of the Federal Government's National Awards for Quality Schooling for Outstanding School Improvement based on the results achieved using interactive whiteboards. This article describes the new style of pedagogy that was developed to take advantage of this technology with particular reference to the teaching of mathematics. (Contains 3 figures.)
