When I started working in public schools in the ACT in 2007, the age of technology in the classroom just started. I remembered that some teachers were anxious to face this new revolutionise teaching practice by inserting the technology of interactive whiteboards. Other teachers were excited to learn something new and more sophisticated than using textures and whiteboard. I personally had a chance to develop my teaching lesson of Indonesian language in the interactive whiteboards after conducting trainings in our professional developments both with the Indonesian teacher Association of Canberra or in the school.
By the time I started teaching Mathematics in 2011 still in the ACT public school system, I have more confident of using it. However, since moving to Perth, with my position as a relief teacher it is hard to develop a lesson on the interactive whiteboards. However, I always ask the teacher I relief or the school administration to use an interactive whiteboards for my relief teaching. And someone in the school will help me to log on to access to a computer. As Chen and Thieleman (2008) pointed out that it is important for teachers to be ready the age of technology, I learnt carefully this new tools and I have to learn it to be able to transform my acknowledge using multimedia in my teching practice. By being positive during my study journey of the classroom technology, I can now confident with using IWB in the classroom. http://www.igiglobal.com.dbgw.lis.curtin.edu.au/gateway/book/975
