MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
I am currently a 4th year BEd Primary student at Moray House School of Education in Edinburgh. I am a mature student with 3 children (1 at primary level and 2 at secondary school).
As a parent, I am intrigued to see how much ICT is used by students and how far it has progressed in the classroom even in the last few years.
However, as a student teacher I am interested in the way ICT, and in particular interactive whiteboards, can motivate learners and whether or not they are as effective in a learning situation as the research (mainly carried out by whiteboard providers) actually states. This curiosity is what has instigated my own small scale research study to be carried out during the early months of next year (2007) as part of a final year professional project.
As a member of MirandaNet, I believe I will be able to use current published findings to inform and support my own findings, possibly providing another view to the investigations or supporting those already found.
