The goals of research in teacher cognition generally involve comparing teachers’ cognition with observed practice in order to understand how Innovation in Language Teaching 23 and why teachers come to teach as they do; understanding teachers’ mental lives is not an end in itself.  67). Methods involve various forms of verbal report, questionnaire and interview data, including stimulated recall, where teachers reflect and comment on recordings of their teaching. Teacher cognition research frequently reveals a mismatch between teachers’ stated beliefs and actual classroom practice (Feryok, 2005, 2010; Cross, 2006; Wyatt, 2008).

The ‘problem, puzzle or question’ driving the present action research project thus concerned the integration of the IWB into CLT practice. This question was determined by project researchers during the planning of iTILT, the funded project which brought the researchers and teachers together, but it arose from real-world concerns among language teachers, teacher educators and researchers with respect to innovative practice with technologies in language teaching. For example, two of the primary teachers involved in the present study participated in an earlier project involving class tandems interacting by videoconferencing (VC) via an IWB (Whyte, 2011).

The chapter thus lays the groundwork for the main findings of the study presented in Part II, and at the same time, readers are offered a 35 36 Interactive Whiteboards for EFL model, based on CAR in a local community of practice, for supporting and researching technological innovation in language teaching. 1 Overview For the iTILT project in France, nine teachers were recruited from different educational sectors in the local area. All taught EFL with an IWB, but otherwise they worked in different schools and institutions in different villages and cities, and were not acquainted with most of the other participants in the study.
