    • SAES Dijon, 19 mai 2013 Atelier 24 : Didactique et Acquisition des Langues (ARDAA) IWB in language teaching • OER development for IWB-supported language teaching • wide variety of IWB use • Whyte, Cutrim Schmid, van Hazebrouck, & Oberhofer, in press 4 • IWB in state school settings (France, Germany) • IWB use dependent on level of teacher development • Cutrim Schmid & Whyte, 2012 • IWB forVC in primary EFL • little unplanned, independent interaction • Whyte, 2011
    • SAES Dijon, 19 mai 2013 Atelier 24 : Didactique et Acquisition des Langues (ARDAA)5 critics of the IWB have pointed out that one of its drawbacks is the fact that it can be easily assimilated into teachers’ traditional pedagogical practice, thus leading to patterns of technology use that simply replicate previous practice changes in pedagogical practice cannot be imposed hegemonically from above, via isolated training sessions and in the absence of ongoing support in the classroom [In a collaborative action research] framework, teachers are supported by researchers in a process of structured reflection involving data collection and analysis with the goals of better understanding teaching and learning in their classrooms and applying this knowledge to improve teaching efficacy and student learning Cutrim Schmid & Whyte, 2012 Whyte, Cutrim Schmid, van Hazebrouck, & Oberhofer, in press
    • SAES Dijon, 19 mai 2013 Atelier 24 : Didactique et Acquisition des Langues (ARDAA) self-efficacy perceptions • how much can you do to exploit ICT for teaching? • how much can you do to exploit the IWB for language teaching? • how confident do you feel with various IWB tools and features? • how much do you believe the IWB can help in language teaching? 6 among the mechanisms of agency, none is more central or pervasive than people’s beliefs about their capabilities to exercise control over their own level of functioning and over events that affect their lives (Bandura, 1993: 118)
