  13. 13. Needs Analysis: Conclusion The rationale for the SmartVET project is OK. The majority of the respondents indicate that: a) they currently do not use the IWB b) are interested in using IWB in their teaching c) would welcome training
  14. 14. Needs Analysis: Non-user ‘I think it would be very beneficial to receive training in my subject area and also in applications I can use to create my own content’.
  15. 15. Needs Analysis: IWB user ‘While I have received some training and during these sessions was able to confidently carry out tasks as shown… I would require additional and more intensive training and preferably on-site support (e.g. from another staff member) to become competent and confident in the use of the IWB. Training on how to use the IWB and examples of how it can be used in the specific subjects that I teach’.
  16. 16. Needs Analysis: Recommendations • Develop training for use of basic IWB functionalities. • Educational focus on supporting generic cognitive activities: ordering, categorizing, comparing etc. • Demo IWB potential for a variety of disciplines
  17. 17. Needs Analysis: Recommendations (2) • Design materials as modular as possible to support differentiation. • Include the topics selecting, adapting & designing materials. • (Revise) general pedagogical topics like ‘active learning’ and general materials design principles. • Foster the ‘added value discussion’
