In an age when students have grown up surrounded by technology, it makes sense that teachers would use technology to create interesting lessons. Many teachers have had SMART boards installed in their classrooms and have never looked back. The SMART board makes lessons more interactive and appealing to modern students. You may already have a SMART board and are looking for ways to use it this year, or perhaps you are thinking of getting a SMART board and are wondering what you could do with it. Here are a few fun ways to use a SMART board in the classroom this year!
Use Built-In Activity Templates
Most interactive whiteboard software comes with built-in templates that make it easy for teachers to design their own games to supplement lessons. These templates are definitely not something to overlook! These lessons often cover core subjects and have fun themes that will appeal to students, like beach theme or alien theme!
Let Students Use Their Phones
This is usually a big no-no in class, but giving students some time to use their phones in a productive way is good for the whole class. Letting students use their phones allows even the shy students to participate. Check out SMART Notebook’s LAB for Shout It Out! activities that require students to use their phones to submit a picture or text response. Rather than calling on single students for answers, you can get the whole class to participate!
Teach Math with Visual Manipulatives
SMART Notebook is an extremely useful tool when it comes to using your SMART board. SMART Notebook offers a Math Equation Editor that can transform handwritten equations and formulas into text! Then, when you need a visual aid, you can turn the text into a graph. It’s a huge time-saver!
