Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, London
A debate chaired by Futurelab (in partnership with Promethean), bringing together expert speakers to present provocative arguments 'for' and 'against' the use of interactive whiteboards in the classroom. The audience, made up from experts and creative thinkers from the fields of education, technology and curriculum policy, will listen and respond to the arguments, and take part in wider discussions and debate.
Futurelab has compiled a review of key research findings in this area, which will be made available to attendees. Research findings will be considered and critiqued, and the pedagogical implications of the use of interactive whiteboards will be discussed in the context of current policy and educational initiatives.
There will also be an opportunity for participants to put forward their suggestions and visions of the potential future directions and technological developments that relate to interactive technology for the classroom.
