A quick link to a useful research project carried out by Neil Mercer and others at the University of Cambridge Faculty of Education.

They investigated what happened when a wall-mounted interactive whiteboard was used by groups of primary school children as they worked together on science activities. They were interested in what the IWB may offer as a distinctive classroom tool for children’s collaborative learning.
