  • Power Shift
    • Use of peripherals: Where teachers appropriately integrate peripherals (eg: ACTIVslates, Digiblues, microscopes, laptops etc) into their IWB lessons, an interesting shift in power can occur:
      • where the teacher orchestrates the lesson from the back of the room and manipulates the board (shift from T/P  IWB)
      • where pupils are allowed to use Digiblues and microscopes and subsequently take some control over what’s displayed on the IWB (shift from T  Ps/IWB)
      • where pupils work in pairs/groups with laptops linked to the IWB (shared control Ps/T/IWB)
      • Maureen Haldane , Senior Learning and Teaching Fellow
    • Manchester Metropolitan University (2007)
    • Knowing when not to use it as important as knowing when to use it
    • ICT no longer just means hardware but a solution that fits a need
