Smart Board

Smart Board

Even though the example from You Tube is not spoken in English I was amazed at how easy it is to use. I was excited to see this technology and can't wait for when every class room has this type of technology readily available.

Powerpoints are being used everywhere and there is alot of information about how to use them and especially how not to. Working as a Teacher Aide I created powerpoints daily for various uses in and out of the classroom. This is the first time I have actually viewed a smart board in action and was awestruck.

What a marvelous invention! The possibilities are endless. Using these within the classroom setting will further engage students. The interactive component further engages the student, andalong with the simplicity of use allows students with barriers to also be involved in the learning journey. It definately adds visual literacy to every lesson. Students are exposed to computers from Preschool therefore using this type of technology will further their own learning journey.
