Interactive whiteboards: An Australasian perspective
Articles are invited for a forthcoming special issue of AJET to be published in 2010, entitled Interactive whiteboards: An Australasian perspective, edited by Dr Michael Thomas (Japan) and Dr Tony Jones (Australia). Announced in AJET Editorial 25(5) and emailings to various listservers, Interactive whiteboards will be AJET's first special issue.
Though interactive whiteboards (IWB) are strongly associated with educational institutions and researchers in the United Kingdom (Miller, Glover, Hennessy, Higgins, Kennewell et al., e.g. Learning, Media and Technology, 32(3 ), 2007; AARE, 2006), they are also increasingly being used in other parts of the world, including Europe, South America, the Middle East and Asia. This special edition invites contributors from the Australasian region including Australia and New Zealand, as well as casting further afield to educators and trainers in Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia.
This issue of AJET will include articles (between 5,000-8,000 words), which address theory, research and practical issues related to the adoption and integration of interactive whiteboards and their associated technologies. Topics may include those listed below, but articles on other aspects of interactive whiteboards in education and training are also encouraged.
