  • An interactive whiteboard is a touch-sensitive screen that works in conjunction with a computer and a projector. All used with a special pen Some can interact by using finger or other object Allows you to use the pen or finger just like a mouse Developed in the early 90’s First used in business Then brought into classrooms Lots of enthusiasm from users Most commonly used brands Show Youtube video
  • (SMART Technologies Inc., 2006, p. 9) Use info from chart to discuss learning styles.
  • (Glover, D. Miller, &amp; Averis, 2003, p. 182) Study done through Keele University, UK studied the lessons of 12 math teachers. (Smith, Higgins, Wall, &amp; J. Miller, 2005, pp. 96-97) An article from the University of Newcastle, UK, did a study of the literature on IWBs and found that it showed increased motivation in students (Zevenbergen &amp; Lerman, 2008, p. 113) “ in observing the students, there were very few behavioral issues one would expect to see when children are seated for such lessons, and that they were predominantly focused on the teacher talk and actions. This observation was consistent across the lessons and schools and suggested that even though the lessons were whole class and teacher led, the students appeared to be engaged with the lesson.” Studied nine schools over 3 years
  • Study at Kent State studied reading and mathematics achievement test scores third through eighth grades small urban school district in northern Ohio compared scores between students whose teachers used interactive whiteboards for instruction and those whose teachers did not.
  • Study at Kent State studied reading and mathematics achievement test scores third through eighth grades small urban school district in northern Ohio compared scores between students whose teachers used interactive whiteboards for instruction and those whose teachers did not. 1379 students - enrolled in the classes of the 31 teachers who used interactive whiteboards for mathematics 1813 students - enrolled in the classes of the 43 teachers who did not use interactive whiteboards Results show some small differences in scores in all but 6 th grade
  • 1466 students in the classes of the 35 teachers who used interactive whiteboards for reading/English language arts instruction 1686 students in the classes of the 55 teachers who did not use interactive whiteboards Not as definitive as the math results Increased achievement in 4 of the 6 grades
  • 3rd and 4th grade Navajo children geometry lesson on the topic of three-dimensional cubes. The comparison group in this study received instruction using the One group worked at desktop computers experimental group received the identical lesson with their teacher using a Smartboard instead of individual computers. Compared scores of pre and post test with a large difference in results
  • Studies have a common theme IWBs have great potential All depends on the way they are used Training is essential Teachers need to be willing to change teaching style If used properly can enhance learning and increase achievement If used infrequently or simply as a whiteboard, learning can be harmed.

    4. 4. Engagement and Motivation of Students Off task behavior Motivation Behavior issues “… pupils were ‘on task’ for 96% of the total lesson time.” (Glover, D. Miller, & Averis, 2003, p. 182) “ The results showed improved motivation for pupils in the class using an IWB.” (Smith, Higgins, Wall, & J. Miller, 2005, pp. 96-97) “ in observing the students, there were very few behavioral issues one would expect to see when children are seated for such lessons…” (Zevenbergen & Lerman, 2008, p. 113)
    5. 5. Student Achievement “ In addition, when teachers were grouped by their students’ mathematics and reading/language arts performance, teachers whose students scored above the mean on both assessments were found to use the whiteboards more frequently (almost every day) than the teachers whose students scored at or below the means on these tests.” (Swan et al., n.d.) Does the use of an interactive whiteboard have an impact on student achievement? Some of the studies seem to indicate this.

    9. 9. Teacher Training Image from www2.smarttech.com/.../0/SB6_teacher_lrg.jpg Training is the key. Teachers must receive immediate and reoccurring training. “ The drawback is that they may not be used to their full potential, serving in many cases as little more than a glorified whiteboard. This may change as users become more familiar with them...” (TechLearn, n.d., p. 6)
