INTERACTIVE WHITEBOARD AND GEOMETRY LESSONS IN PRIMARY SCHOOL

Urška Bučar, Branko Kaučič

Abstract

Interactive whiteboards are modern technology in schools. They are especially suitable to be used in primary schools. Some authorities already recognized that and help schools equipping with them. Now, when a moderate number of schools are having them, minority of teachers proactively use them, while others are waiting to get prepared materials for them. In the paper we discuss the usage of interactive whiteboards and present our software for interactive whiteboard that can be used in the first grade of primary school for geometry lessons. Reasons to develop own software and results of experimental usage are given, too.
