SMART Board in the Classroom

SMART Board technology provides an opportunity to truly make your instruction more effective for your students. The SMART Board and its related software is used with a computer and a projection device.

The interactive whiteboard feature of the SMART Board is its most basic use. Learning how to use the SMART Board for mouse clicking and writing with virtual pens is incredibly easy. SMART Notebook software is used to capture whiteboard notes and build interactive lessons. SMART Tools are also available for playing videos or recording and playing back lessons.

SMART Board activities, lessons and SMART notebooks (presentation application) are used at various educational levels worldwide. Many educational web sites have SMART Board ideas and resources archived and available to be shared. These sites are explored during the SMART Board professional development.

The basic interactive features of the SMART Board can be learned in a few hours. To truly be comfortable integrating all the features will take more time and practice. Development of a classroom unit is an excellent way to learn the basics, explore learning opportunities, and, find and develop lessons.

SMART Board is the Interactive Whiteboard from SMART Technologies, Inc.
