This paper reports how twenty six New South Wales public school teachers creatively integrate interactive whiteboards into their mathematics instruction to support students’ learning through adopting a variety of digital resources in conjunction with the interactive whiteboard including online applications, educational software and presentation software. The use of online video clips on the interactive whiteboard was perceived to be very beneficial in engaging students in mathematics lessons. Lack of access and time were considered to be the main barriers to maximising the potential of the interactive whiteboard in mathematics education.

Abbreviated titleMathematics education research: Impacting practice
OtherWelcome to Perth for MERGA 42 for what should be a memorable conference. We are delighted to be hosting this conference as it is 25 years since it was last held in Perth and nine years since it was last hosted in Western Australia. The Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia provides an inclusive and cosmopolitan Conference. We look forward to seeing mathematics educators - and academics involved in mathematics education - from many countries.

The organising committee, consisting of academics from Curtin University and the University of Notre Dame Australia, is confident that the conference program will be well received, as will the accompanying social program.

The conference has a theme of “Research Impacting Practice”. This focus was chosen to advance the mathematical experience of the students to whom we ultimately contribute. We are fortunate to have been able to attract some highly regarded international speakers in Professors Jere Confrey, Paul Cobb, Doug Clements, and Julie Sarama. In addition, Professor Di Siemon will deliver the Clements Foyster Address and Professor Doug Clarke the Teachers’ Day Keynote speech. That is indeed an impressive line-up of speakers who will certainly provide plenty of stimulation.
