"Beauchamps (2004) insiste sur le fait que la transition de l’enseignement traditionnel avec un tableau noir à l’intégration du TBI suppose un changement du style pédagogique de l’enseignant. Pour lui, les enseignants doivent découvrir les potentialités du TBI et cela suppose un investissement considérable. En effet, ils doivent développer leurs compétences techniques aux côtés de leurs compétences pédagogiques."


Beauchamps participe au projet iTILT, sur l'utilisation du TBI en classe de langue (http://itilt.eu), qui cherche justement à aider les enseignants tant du côté pédagogique que du côté technique ...

Interactive whiteboards: done and dusted, or worth the investment?

Interactive whiteboards: done and dusted, or worth the investment? | IWBs & Language Teaching | Scoop.it

Language educators differ in their views of the value of the interactive whiteboard (IWB) for teaching and learning foreign languages.

 

In our EU-funded project iTILT (http://itilt.eu) we are supporting the use of this tool in communicative language teaching.  Our classroom illustrations (http://itilt.eu/advanced-search) show teachers how the IWB can be used in different language classrooms.  

 

We also, however, acknowledge the difficulties that can arise with the tool - see Cutrim Schmid & Whyte (http://llt.msu.edu/issues/june2012/cutrimschmidwhyte.pdf) or Whyte, Beauchamp & Hillier (http://books.google.ie/books?printsec=frontcover&id=KxdY807kumMC&redir_esc=y#v=onepage&q&f=false)for example.

 

Other educators argue that time is up for the IWB, and that this technology is already being overtaken by other technologies such as tablets and other types of interactive projection (Jeff Herb http://instructionaltechtalk.com/apple-tv-vs-interactive-whiteboards-in-the-classroom/ but see also Matt Granger's reply in the comment section)

 

The Learning Technologies special interest group of IATEFL is hosting a webinar on this topic this weekend (http://ltsig.org.uk/ Pete Sharma and Gavin Dudeney) so if you have something to say or just want to hear the arguments, this event may be worth a look.

Efficiency of the IWB | itilt.eu

Efficiency of the IWB | itilt.eu | IWBs & Language Teaching | Scoop.it

The iTILT-training handbook offers a set of criteria to be used when designing IWB materials for foreign language lessons.  One of the criteria focuses specifically on the efficiency of the IWB: ‘’When designing IWB-based activities teachers should measure the personal cost of integrating the IWB against its return and its efficiency. In other words, they should ask themselves whether the same activity could not be implemented more easily via other means’’ (page 14).  

 

From collecting video data and interviewing the teachers and learners for the iTILT project it became apparent that many valued the efficiency of the IWB in a variety of different ways. Below are some ways in which teachers stated that the IWB improved the efficiency of their language lessons.  Whilst the majority of following clips are examples of Welsh video clips you will be able to find the majority of these examples across the other countries on the website.

Efficiency is certainly an argument for most teachers: show me a way to do something quickly and easily, and I'm ready to listen!
