Leading Changed Classroom Culture--The Impact of Interactive Whiteboards
Glover, Derek; Miller, David
Management in Education, v21 n3 p21-24 2007
As most schools have installed whiteboard technology in at least one teaching area by year in primary schools and by subject in secondary schools there is evidence that not only technology and teaching approaches change but so too does the totality of learning experience summarised as "culture." As part of a research project concerned with the large-scale introduction of interactive whiteboards into all rooms in mathematics departments in seven secondary schools, a total of 46 lessons were video-recorded six months after the introduction of interactive whiteboards into the schools. Subsequent analysis showed that the total experience of pupils does appear to be changing in several ways when teachers have developed competence in teaching with the interactive whiteboard as an increased focus of work. Several factors in this experience have been affected by the introduction of new whiteboard technology. These factors appear to generate a culture of learning within each classroom. In this article, the authors contend that the interactive whiteboard has introduced a new factor into the culture by prompting changes in relationships, work patterns, and lesson preparation.
