Everything You Need to Know About Smart Boards in Higher Education Facilities

smart boards

Smart boards in higher education facilities are an interactive addition that can help encourage active participation, learning, and collaboration.

Implementing smart boards in higher education facilities can help contribute many benefits to students, particularly in classrooms with only one computer available. Smart boards simply require a projector, a single computer, and software installed on the computer that’s specially tailored towards educational purposes. In teaching settings, smart boards provide the teacher with the ability to save particular notes and lessons that they’re interested in reviewing at a later date. Additionally, students benefit from smart boards in higher education facilities because they are an interactive addition into a classroom that can help encourage active participation, learning, and collaboration with their peers. 

Higher Education: What’s a Smart Board?

A smart board is more than just a whiteboard. A smart board uses computer software and a projector to project electronic media onto a whiteboard, which can be viewed by an entire classroom. This can help encourage students to participate in class and collaborate with their peers, particularly when it comes to learning games and educational lessons. Additionally, a smart board serves as a fun educational element within a classroom that goes beyond just simple writing with chalk on a blackboard. 

How Can a Smart Board Be Used in Higher Education?

Teachers can implement smart board technology within their classroom for all of their lesson plans or units. Whether you’re choosing to directly use educational software with your smart board, using the smart board to showcase educational content from YouTube, or simply using a smart board to encourage educational gameplay within the classroom — there are many uses for a smart board in higher education facilities.
