New technologies always need thoughtful handling. The Introduction of Interactive Whiteboards to a Primary School provides the mixture of analysis and anecdote that the title promises. Derived from the experiences of Gateway College, a successful multicultural school in an economically-deprived area in London, the 28-page booklet is full of useful recommendations, honest warnings and considered opinions. It takes us from the arrival of whiteboards, via staff training and the excitement of innovation, to their current use. Some suggestions are technical, covering font sizes and colours, while others reflect on the ways children and adults learn together. The Introduction of Interactive Whiteboards to a Primary School costs pound;5 from City of Westminster.
