Interactive Whiteboards use in Classrooms explored with HyperRESEARCH

Researchers Neil Mercera, Sara Hennessya and Paul Warwicka of the Faculty of Education at the University of Cambridge relied on HyperRESEARCH for analyzing data supporting their paper, "Using interactive whiteboards to orchestrate classroom dialogue," appearing in the journal of Technology, Pedagogy and Education (Volume 19, Issue 2, 2010, Pages 195 - 209).

From the Abstract: "This paper focuses on the use of interactive whiteboards (IWBs) as a tool for encouraging and supporting classroom dialogue. The authors' concern here is with the promotion of 'dialogic' communication between teachers and students, which is now widely recognised as educationally valuable. In this study they investigated how teachers could use the technical interactivity of the IWB to support dialogic interactivity. The design of the study was predicated upon a partnership between the authors and three UK (primary, middle school and secondary) teachers of 8- to 14-year-olds; examples of practice reported here derive mainly from secondary history. Outcomes include illustrative examples of teachers' effective strategies for using the IWB for orchestrating dialogue. Implications for teachers' initial training and professional development are considered."
