Enhancing Student Learning with Interactive Whiteboards: Perspective of Teachers and Students
Gregory, Sue
Australian Educational Computing, v25 n2 p31-34 Dec 2010
When used in a pedagogically sound manner, interactive whiteboards (IWBs) are a valuable resource for connecting students with their learning. IWBs have been utilised in remote NSW schools for almost ten years, with other regional schools having only recently installed them. Exemplary teacher practice that demonstrated good pedagogy in the use of IWBs was identified. The lessons of five teachers from three remote and rural NSW primary and secondary schools were videoed to determine how they used the whiteboards to support teaching and learning. Teachers were interviewed to document their perceptions of the use of IWBs and students were interviewed to determine their feelings about the use of IWBs to support classroom learning. These case studies found that there was overwhelming support for the use of IWBs by both teacher and students.
