IWB positions

October hols roll around and DET NSW still poised to make an announcement on the procurement of IWBs (vendor support for one off placement) . My daughter’s primary school are fired up to purchase boards for every classroom. I’ve noticed a real turnaround in the schools attitude to ICT as they debate the merits of IWBs. Committing to IWBs is not proving so straight forward for many secondary schools- as the investment is higher- and other interests compete. The time and flexibility of timetabling alone can enable primary schools to better exploit the opportunities of IWBs. The recent special IWB edition [plug] of Learning, Media and Technology,Vol. 32, No. 3, September 2007,explores a few of these issues esp. Gillena et al A learning revolution. Also good to see some local contributors to this edition: esp. colleagues Jane Hunter and Sue Beveridge’s work being featured in same edition. great holiday reading…
