Why choose this option?Cost effective

Financial constraints Incremental development

Sustainable A mixture of ICT environments Emerging technologies 3-5 year obsolescence cycle

Priorities Empower the teacher Develop an e-learning culture Share resources

Whiteboard May be used as normal whiteboard Templates may be projected on to it Robust

AdvantagesTeaching Methodologies: Instant access Facilitate ease of interaction with the content Focus attention on one point Getting away from traditional methods Promote effective teaching Puts teacher in a facilitative rather than instructional role

ICT Culture Available to all teachers in the school Resource sharing Digital Environment Technology becomes seamless and invisible ICT becomes embedded in teaching and learning Peer learning CPD - school based

Power Shift

Use of peripherals: Where teachers appropriately integrate peripherals (eg: ACTIVslates, Digiblues, microscopes, laptops etc) into their IWB lessons, an interesting shift in power can occur:

where the teacher orchestrates the lesson from the back of the room and manipulates the board (shift from T/P IWB)

where pupils are allowed to use Digiblues and microscopes and subsequently take some control over what’s displayed on the IWB (shift from T Ps/IWB)

where pupils work in pairs/groups with laptops linked to the IWB (shared control Ps/T/IWB)

Knowing when not to use it as important as knowing when to use it

ICT no longer just means hardware but a solution that fits a need
