Abstract [en]

Interactive whiteboards (IWBs) have become a common piece of equipment in classrooms all over the world. In many cases, teachers continue to use them in teacher-centered lessons. We will present examples of how learners can use the interactive whiteboard to investigate new physics and communicate their ideas to each other in the process of scientific inquiry. The IWB's kinesthetic and graphical potential both play an important role in these instructional activities.
