The adoption of interactive whiteboard technology in the mathematics classroom has been reasonably explored in terms of effective use (Glover & Miller, 2009), student engagement (Morgan, 2008) and achievement (Lutz, 2010), pedagogy (G. Beauchamp & Kennewell, 2013), and learning environments (Yang, Wang, & Kao, 2012). However, there has been little research performed regarding how teachers actually become effective at orchestrating and managing the technology in the classroom in terms of their level of instrumental genesis attainment. In this study, I examined how a teacher develops instrumental genesis, the two-fold process involving instrumentation and instrumentalisation, with interactive whiteboard technology through an exploratory sequential mixed methods design. Teacher interviews and class observations enabled the researcher to consider the operations, actions, and activities involved in developing instrumental genesis and guided the researcher in the quantitative phase of the study where the Adair Instrumental Genesis Inventory was created, piloted, and field tested.
