eTwinning teachers learning effective use of interactive whiteboards

A total of 18 teachers and teacher trainers took part in the course "Making the most of your interactive whiteboard" that took place on 19 and 20 April 2012 at the Future Clasroom Lab. This two-day workshop was offered to eTwinning teachers on how to make more effective use of interactive whiteboard (IWB) technologies. The participants from eight different countries (France, Iceland, Portugal, Spain, Poland, Cyprus, Latvia and Belgium) had their current skills level checked, find out about research evidence on effective practice using an IWB and created and shared resource to be used in their lessons. The course also emphasised the importance of creating a plan for personal development using an IWB and other digital resources.

The course was led by Diana Bannister from the University of Wolverhampton, UK who is the Development Director for Learning Technologies in the School for Education Futures and has conducted extensive development and research of classroom practice looking at the use of interactive whiteboards and other digital resources.

Diana Bannister has earlier created a booklet "Making the most of your interactive whiteboard" that is available to download in English, Portuguese, German, Czech and Italian.
