dc.description.abstractThe development and adoption of technology for the classroom is changing the way education is delivered and perceived by students. The availability of Interactive Whiteboard (IWB) technology in New Zealand classrooms is increasing. With this change in technology comes a change in the way educational resource material is presented to students. Significantly, there is a paucity of scholarly research regarding the presentation of typographic information that is efficient and effective for children's' reading and learning on screen. This research assisted in gaining an overview of the types of material and resources being used on IWB in New Zealand classrooms and the quality, readability and legibility of the typographic content of this material. This paper seeks to propose cursory considerations for typographic presentation on IWB as discovered through both interviews with students and the observations of the researcher. This experiment seeks to identify whether typographic factors are being used effectively when displaying text for children's reading on IWB's and to investigate children's preferences and issues with typographic elements.en_NZ
