Interactive white boards: changing students' attitudes about science
In recent years Interactive White Boards (IWBs) have been introduced into classrooms and claims have been made these boards increase student motivation. This action research looked into the extent the use of IWBs to deliver British Columbia curriculum changed students‟ attitudes towards science. The attitudes towards science of two Science and Technology 11 classes at Alberni District Secondary School were measured over a three month period to evaluate the change in attitudes. The data attained shows that when an IWB was used to deliver curriculum there was a statistically positive change in students‟ attitudes towards science.
