INTERACTIVE WHITEBOARDS – A PILOT PROJECT

T. Bianco

University of Augsburg (GERMANY)
In the context of the project “InnoMathEd – Innovations in Mathematics Education on European Level” (http://innomathed.eu) we focus on the development of pupils’ key competences and their ability to use ICT for learning processes in mathematics. Under the roof of InnoMathEd we have established a pilot project using Interactive White Boards (IWB) in class. By an open request for proposal we offered schools in Augsburg (Germany) to use an IWB within their school for one school year. The project started in July 2009 and the teachers and pupils have worked with the IWBs intensively since then. There are regular meetings in which the teachers get the opportunity to exchange experiences, ideas and material. We as researchers accompany these meetings to give input regarding didactics and methods and we also evaluate the project. The paper deals with the advantages of ICT in class and gives an insight to the procedures of the pilot project with the Interactive Whiteboards. There will also be a first look into the evaluation results of the project.

Within the multilateral Comenius-Project InnoMathEd which is funded by the European Union ten partners from eight European countries aim at the development of substantial innovations in mathematics education. The main approach is to give pupils the chance to develop deep mathematical understanding, to acquire key competences that are essential for lifelong learning and to use ICT, especially dynamic mathematics, for individual and cooperative learning processes. Within the project the involved institutions focus on various strategies to support learning within their area and in accordance with the specific curricula.
