Abstract

Supports  for  K-­‐12  Teachers  Building  Do-­‐It-­‐Yourself  (DIY)  Interactive  Digital   Whiteboards          While  some  K-­‐12  teachers  in  the  U.S.  have  been  given  access  to  interactive  digital  whiteboards  in  their  classrooms,  many  others  have  not.  In  this  paper,  we  examine  three  case  studies  in  which  teachers  were  provided  with  the  supports  needed  to  build  their  own  do-­‐it-­‐yourself  (DIY)  interactive  digital  whiteboards,  similar  to  those  sold  by  commercial  companies  such  as  SmartBoard  and  Promethean,  but  at  a  small  fraction  of  the  price.  Three  case  studies  analyzing  the  application  by  an  inservice  teacher  of  the  online  resources  and  supports  provided  to  assist  them  in  building  a  DIY  interactive  whiteboard  are  provided.    Unique components of each teachersexperience are described and then the three teachers are compared on the samecomponents. The case studies demonstrate that each teacher had unique components oftheir experience, but that there were also common features. These differences helpedillustrate what idiosyncratic frustrations might occur during the building process, whilethe common features point out a possible roadmap of expectations regarding other similarundertakings to build a DIY interactive whiteboard. Researchers  and  teachers  that  attend  this  presentation  and  that  wish  to  build  their  own  DIY  interactive  whiteboard  will  be  given  access  to  online  resources  and  supports  so  that  they  too  can  build  a  low-­‐cost  DIY  interactive  whiteboard.
