Using Models for Understanding Pedagogical Change in a Technology Environment: A case study of IWB implementation in a secondary school

Effective integration of learning technologies into school classrooms is a continuing issue, with many instances of new technologies making minimal impacts on classroom practice. Reports on the introduction of interactive whiteboards into UK schools over the past decade have revealed that their impact on both pedagogy and learning is at best neutral. Interactive whiteboards have become common in Australian schools in the past three years, and in that time the authors have been involved in three studies investigating professional development models to help integration of interactive whiteboards into classrooms. These studies have all involved data collection through video-recording of lessons in naturalistic mode. The video-recordings were analysed using two coding schemes, one a modification of a pedagogical hierarchy developed by Beauchamp which was christened HoPS (Hierarchy of Pedagogical Stages), and the other developed from Bernstein
