Interactive Technologies in Learning Environments 
Professor Gary Beauchamp, Director of Research of Cardiff School of Education has secured European Commission funding for a project on the use of Interactive Technologies in Learning Environments with an emphasis on language teaching.

The project is coordinated by the Linguapolis Centre of the University of Antwerp and involves 7 partners from the EU 27 and Turkey. There is a clear trend towards the increased use of ICT in Schools throughout Europe, and the use of interactive whiteboards as one such medium has increased enormously.

Interactive White Boards fit the general principles for theeffective use of ICT and interactive technologies in schools. Cardiff Met's role will be to develop research tools for the project, to collect data relating to primary school teaching in Wales and provide quality assurance and liaison with the external project evaluator.
