  4. 4. Supporting Continuous ProfessionalDevelopment of VET teachers in the use ofInteractive WhiteboardsEU-Project Leonardo programme 2011-2013
  5. 5. NeedsAnalysis:Recommendations• Produce modules for basic IWB functionalities+ for ordering, structuring, comparing etc.• Design materials as modular as possible• Demo IWB potential for a variety of disciplines• Include IWB page navigation, assessing,adapting and designing materials• Include (revision of) general pedagogical topicslike ‘active learning’ and general materialsdesign principles.• Foster the ‘added value discussion’
  6. 6. Rationale(Cutrim Schmid 2009, Gray et al. 2007,Cutrim Schmid & Whyte, 2012(Kennewell, 2006; Higgins et al., 2007;Koenraad, 2008; Thomas & CutrimSchmid, 2010)Clear need forprofessional trainingand pedagogicalresources to assistteachers in exploitingIWB in the foreignlanguage classroomLimited uptake inspecific subject areasand educational sectorsTeacher skills key inrealising added valueIWB underused in IrishVET sector

  14. 14. QualitativeOutcomesComments by participating iTILT data partner teachers:“I recommend teachers attend regular trainings on IWBs. Teacher education must begiven the utmost importance. I think, training must be provided by languageeducators rather than technology people, and meaningful uses of IWBs for teachingmust be given with sample activities” (T2).“First teachers should know how to use the IWB effectively. If it is necessary theyshould take training before using it” (T6).“Teachers should definitely observe their colleagues to discover the range of activitiesthat can be brought into the classrooms with IWB” (T2).“Teachers can watch their recorded videos of their lessons and evaluate theirteaching (self-reflection) in order to refine the way they use IWBs” (T3).
