Interactive whiteboards - adopting the technology


Teachers in the evolution level take this idea one step further by continuing to evolve and adapt the teaching and learning experiences across the curriculum through the use of this technology. The teacher has created a flexible environment that is adaptive in order to meet the needs of individual learners. The teacher is confident in integrating ideas and a range of electronic resources to meet the needs of the learners. They are able to provide for the various needs of different learning styles and remain open-minded to new ideas and developments. They continually search for new strategies to improve the learning experiences offered to the pupils.

These stages should not be seen as discrete development points or as some sort of hierarchy of competence in using the whiteboard in subject teaching. Teachers cover many different areas of learning and are having to develop many new techniques to successfully integrate this technology with their classroom practice.
