Abstract: In the last ten years several studies were conducted about the educational use of interactive whiteboard (IWB) in teaching and learning activities, showing different advantages introduced by this technology and analysing different implications for teachers (both from technical and pedagogical point of view). In this context, we planned a research with the aim of analysing the activities that can be performed through the interactive whiteboard in science laboratories, in order to characterize them in terms of both technical features and pedagogical goals. Furthermore, we investigated also the pedagogical approaches used by teachers to plan or to carry out these activities. For these purposes, we video-taped 20 sessions of didactic science laboratories where different science teachers used IWB with their students in an ICT-equipped laboratory, and we classified the video-clips by using three different dimensions of analysis: Pedagogical Approaches, Technical Uses and Pedagogical Aims. These dimensions of analysis allowed us to characterize the practices carried out through the interactive whiteboard in scientific contexts and to study how IWB blends in an inquiry-based science laboratory. Moreover, this analysis led us to identify different specific IWB practices that can produce results unattainable by using only traditional educational tools (such as whiteboard, computer and projector).
