Iwb Workshop J Morrissey

  1. 1. IWB working Group
  2. 2. IWB working group <ul><li>The aim of this working group is to identify common areas of concern, share experience, highlight policy and identify examples of innovative use of IWBs in the counties represented in the WG: Austria, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Enhanced student motivation to learn </li></ul><ul><li>Explication of complex concepts in science and maths </li></ul><ul><li>Facilitates ICT integration & more activity-based pupil learning and participation </li></ul><ul><li>encourages new teaching approaches </li></ul><ul><li>Overall positive impact on learning and teaching </li></ul> benefits..........
  4. 4. Pre-requisites - School Readiness <ul><li>Needs a culture of ICT integration in schools </li></ul><ul><li>Prior experience of confident and effective use of ICT for learning and teaching </li></ul><ul><li>Supportive school leadership </li></ul><ul><li>New classroom management skills to manage new and more demanding learning dynamic </li></ul><ul><li>Teacher willingness to prepare teaching materials and content to deliver curricular objects – share school-wide & sector-wide </li></ul>
  5. 5. Concerns <ul><li>High parent & student expectations of their use </li></ul><ul><li>Lack of policy and advice on contextualised technology choices. School action plan/schools strategic plan. </li></ul><ul><li>Schools need to identify their technology needs, look at ALL technologies and make independent and educationally - informed choices. (Some highly innovative schools and progressive users of ICT choose not to use IWB ) </li></ul><ul><li>Industry-driven market focused on teachers and parents </li></ul><ul><li>Still a very expensive technology </li></ul><ul><li>Lack of true Interoperability </li></ul>
  6. 6. Phase one September – March 2009 <ul><li>mapping and scoping phase where the objectives are to: </li></ul><ul><li>review and analyse existing studies on IWB use in Europe and internationally. </li></ul><ul><li>define and identify current good practice of use of IWBs in several countries. </li></ul><ul><li>based on good practice examples, provide a review of desk research and feedback from WG members. </li></ul><ul><li>provide baseline recommendations on IWB specification . </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
  7. 7. Phase 1 <ul><li>Identify different strategies for teacher professional development in relation to IWB and other interactive tools. Propose guidelines for effective IWB continuous professional development (CPD). </li></ul><ul><li>  Identify pedagogical expertise in this area to contribute to work on teacher professional development in Phase I and possible research activities in Phase II. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>On interoperability </li></ul><ul><li>Analyse and provide direct feedback to Becta on its common file format for IWB content. </li></ul><ul><li>  Dialogue with IWB vendors so that teacher-generated content is made more widely available (including in the LRE) via acceptance, for example, of Creative Commons’ licenses. </li></ul><ul><li>  Produce illustrated examples of a wider range of innovative technologies </li></ul>
  9. 9. Phase II (April 2009 - 2010) <ul><li>Identify good practice on how the integration of digital devices complements and broadens the scope and versatility of IWB use (e.g. PDAs, tablets, netbooks, digital cameras, handheld voting systems etc.) </li></ul><ul><li>based on CPD guidelines from Phase I, develop generic teacher training/PD materials that can be customised by both MoE (and possibly incorporated in vendor-provided trainings?) </li></ul><ul><li>  look at the possible production of generic advice and guidelines on the deployment and use of IWBs in schools </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Examine and report on cost of usage of IWBs with reference to comparative costings for a range of other/alternative technologies. </li></ul><ul><li>Examine MoE and vendor strategies and tools for IWB content creation (particularly user-generated content) - possibly to include some action research and evaluation of different approaches. </li></ul><ul><li>  Discussions with vendors on interoperability and common standards. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Discuss </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>Consult with vendors and explore options for collaboration in relation to education-configured market offerings. </li></ul><ul><li>  Define one or more IWB research activities. For example: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>to assess the relevance of IWBs in the context of new and emerging technologies (mobile/handheld, Web 2.0, social networking etc.) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>to examine how innovation with IWBs at primary level can be maintained in a post primary context. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  Based on Phase I and II activities, publish an EUN comparative study of IWB deployment and use In Europe </li></ul>
