We are doing a presentation on the use of SMART Boards in the classroom. 



What is SMART Board? 

A Smart Board is a interactive whiteboard that can be used to enhance lessons in the classroom. The Smart Board is touch sensitive so teachers are able to touch it as well as students to get them more involved in the learning process. 


What are tools for SMART Board? 

Some tools available to use with the Smart Board are a pop-up key board, floating tools that allow you to highlight, erase, or undo something, a recorder with audio and more. There is also tools such as spotlight, which can bring attention to what you want your class to focus on.  A magnifier and pointer for the Smart Board are also available.  Another great feature for the Smart Board it the ability to capture screen shots and save them to your smart notebook.

Additional Tools:

- Video Player

- Brigit - software that allows you to communicate and collaborate with others.

-SMART Sync Classroom Management - Helps teachers to monitor student activity and to manage other aspects of the classroom more effectively and efficiently.
