Promoting Teacher and School Development through Co-enquiry: Developing Interactive Whiteboard use in a ‘Dialogic Classroom’
The authors explore the relationship between the use of interactive whiteboard (IWB) and the pre-existing and developing pedagogies of three teachers in a teacher–researcher collaborative group in UK. The authors focused on one teacher from this group and considered how the developing understandings of her became evident in her practice and influenced the group’s deliberations about uses of the IWB. This research indicates that teachers with approaches grounded in a good understanding of how to promote children’s learning will gradually and iteratively integrate the use of a new technology to serve their well-founded pedagogical intentions.

This study explored and reformulated definitions of classroom dialogue—in which teachers and students exchange, evaluate, and build on ideas—in the context of interactive whiteboard use. This article focuses on the collaborative theory-building process itself, whose aim was to exploit insights derived from research to stimulate and inform thinking, guide principled development of new classroom practices, and refine the theory. Three university researchers and three United Kingdom teachers, along with their students aged 10–14, took part in the research

The Impact of Collaborative Video Analysis by Practitioners and Researchers upon Pedagogical Thinking and Practice: A Follow-up Study
The 'T-MEDIA' project analysed and documented how teachers exploit the use of projection technologies - data projectors and interactive whiteboards (IWBs) - to support learning in secondary-school subject lessons. The research involved collaboration between university researchers and eight UK secondary teachers in four subject areas. This article reports on a follow-up study carried out one year after the collaborative analyses in order to assess: (1) the subsequent impact upon teachers' own pedagogical thinking and practices; and (2) the extent to which the ideas and practices they developed had been shared with, taken up and adapted by their colleagues and schools.
