Abstract

The most recent studies have shown that the introduction of technology in schools is not a factor that improves student achievement unless other context factors related to teaching methods and the teachers who use them are present. This paper aims to illustrate and consider the results of an action research project, carried out by the team of the University of Salerno in 2011/2012, on the “Assessment of learning mediated through an IWB”. The theme of this work concerns the relationship between the learning mediated through an IWB and the evaluation methods. Starting from a specific experience and considering the link with the theme of motivation, the use of an IWB that leads to perception of effective interventions of the teachers involved in the project has been presented. This empirical approach may constitute the first step towards assessing the use of an IWB. The conclusions of the research action will constitute a chance to reflect on the validity and appropriateness of doing tests with an IWB.
