Learning from international experiences with interactive whiteboards: Hennessy & London 2013

Shona Whyte's insight:

Key findings (p. 11):

- IWBs as such have no transformative power on pedagogy

- Professional learning about IWBs and their effective use takes time

- Because their impact on pupils is mediated by their use by teachers, there are no robust, clear-cut positive effects on learning associated with IWBs as such

iTILT & SmartVET: two EU projects to promote effective IWB use

EuroCALL presentation: Koenraad, Cutrim Schmid & Whyte; Evora, Portugal, 12/09/13
Shona Whyte's insight:

Our slides from a special session on EU projects, where we talked about the iTILT project on language teaching education (http://itilt.eu) and Smart VET, for vocational training.  Both projects focused on the interactive whiteboard (IWB) and produced teacher education materials which are available from project websites under creative commons licences.

« Le TBI sera bientôt un outil relai au service des tablettes ou smartphones » Jean Condé, InteractiFLE

« Le TBI sera bientôt un outil relai au service des tablettes ou smartphones » Jean Condé, InteractiFLE | TELT | Scoop.it

"Après la révolution « Internet » des années 90’- 2000’, nous sommes entrés dans l’ère du « tactile ». Une technologie devenue standard pour la nouvelle génération. Dans ce contexte, le TBI n’est plus vraiment remis en question et ce n’est selon moi qu’une question de temps avant qu’il n’ait complétement fait oublier le tableau classique. Il a déjà fait l’objet d’un investissement conséquent dans certaines régions du monde telles que l’Asie du sud-est, l’Amérique du Nord et l’Afrique. Le retard français pointé du doigt par le rapport Fourgous en 2010 se comble progressivement et dans 5 ans maximum, nous verrons sans doute plus de 50% des classes du primaire au lycée  (déjà plus de 90% au Royaume-Uni) équipé d’un TBI."

Self-efficacy in use of IWB: European perspectives

Shona Whyte's insight:

An iTILT publication by Hillier, Beauchamp & Whyte just appeared in the BESA journal Educational Perspectives.  The editorial notes: "Vol. 5 (2) is a themed edition of the journal, its focus being international and comparative issues in Education Studies. The first article by Emily Hillier, Gary Beauchamp and Shona Whyte involves teachers from schools across seven countries in Europe. It is a study of self-efficacy in the use of interactive whiteboards across educational settings. It offers a pan-European perspective through its report and analysis on the preliminary findings of an EU-funded project called Interactive Technologies in Language Teaching. Significantly, despite reporting initial low levels of self-efficacy with particular features and tools of the IWB, teachers across the European cohort remained positive about the potential benefit of using IWBs to increase pupil participation, engagement and motivation."

Where To After The Digital Education Revolution?

Education Technology Solutions, May 2013.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Forthright and thought-provoking analysis of errors in technology implementation in Australian classrooms.  Neither the "silver bullet" approach of simply buying equipment, nor the "ICT expert" bolt-on model have brought pedagogical transformation.  What works is the normalisation of digital practices via "Bring Your Own Technology" (BYOT) among motivated individuals and institutions, with the IWB a key element of the "network plumbing" which facilitates the transition from a paper to digital work environment.

Glad you found it useful. We're really hoping itilt.eu will make a contribution beyond the lifetime of the project, so let us know if you find it helpful :-)
