What is a Smart Board?
A Smart Board is more than a whiteboard. It uses a projector to show electronic media on an interactive board. The Smart Board itself has styluses and an eraser any user can use on the board. Over the years, Smart Board technology has evolved to have higher processing times, more sensitivity, and better control in general. Depending on the environment the board will be used in, settings can be applied to control how students use it.
Elementary and Primary School Uses
Younger children thrive on interacting with new stimuli. Instead of printing out new coloring sheets or math problems, a Smart Board gives educators the chance to create the material themselves. As with a chalkboard, an educator will write on it, and students can come up and write the answer on the board. However, the novelty of the Smart Board takes years to wear off. Children love it and find it easy to use, making it ideal for elementary and primary school use.
Middle and High School Uses
As topics get harder in school, educators must take extra steps to ensure students are learning. Middle school is where students begin discovering the subjects they do well in. It is also the place where some students can fall behind. English and history are excellent examples of how useful a Smart Board can be. By projecting the text on the Smart Board, educators are able to annotate and explain the material without reproducing it by hand. It also allows students to mirror the notes. With math and science, Smart Boards provide 3D models and animations to understand concepts better. Consider giving your students an educational edge by investing in technology they will enjoy.
