Transcript of smart boards
Over the past years teaching technologies has evolved. Teachers are putting away chalkboards for an improved technology called smart boards. Back in 1986, David Martin and Nancy Knowlton were driving through upstate New York when David first described a product idea he'd been working on to Nancy. A year later, SMART was founded. Originally, the company was the Canadian distributor for a U.S. projector company, and revenue was generated through projector sales. That revenue was directed toward the research and development of the SMART Board interactive whiteboard, which would combine the simplicity of a whiteboard with the innovative power of a computer. In 1992, SMART formed an alliance with Intel Corporation, which resulted in joint product development and marketing efforts and Intel's equity ownership in SMART. That relationship with Intel was one of the key building blocks in SMART's history. The equity investment helped SMART's hardware and software development activities.
guidelines and innovative strategies
•Velcro the eraser, pens, and remote control to the board.
•Use a soft mallet instead of fingers on the board
•Use a wireless keyboard for typing
•If you can't install the SMARTboard software on all your computers, use a USB storage device that can be moved from computer to computer.
-Save lessons to present to a student who is absent
-Use the built in maps to teach geography
-Present student presentations
-Have the students create e-folios that include samples of their work and narration
-Take notes directly into powerpoint presentations
-Reinforce skills by using interactive websites
-Create a project calendar
-Teach editing skills
-Use the highlighter tool to highlight nouns, verbs, adjectives, etc.
-Use the Smartboard with Kidspiration or Inspiration

technology & media used
SMART products are innovative, easy to use and proven to enhance learning for students. Smart products are also designed to be integrated, and evolving. This means that SMART products works harmoniously together and can easily adapted to the classroom needs. Teachers can quickly start using SMART products and experience the benefits they bring to teaching and learning.

smart board integration
is when classroom teachers use technology to introduce, reinforce, extend, enrich, assess student mastery of curricular targets.
Having a Smart Board-based classroom allows you to use technology as a solution for everyday teaching problems. As a teacher you will decide the skills you want your students to learn from technology-integrated lessons and will design a way to assess how well students retained the information and how effectively the activity was carried out. Some examples of assessment include: higher achievement outcome, cooperative work outcome, attitude outcome, and improved motivation. Teachers are responsible to organize the teaching environment so that technology integration can be successfully carried out. Incorporating the Smart Board into your curriculum allows you to gain the interest of your students by an interactive learning environment. Presentation tools are increasing in popularity for educators who want to share ideas and information with large or small groups of students. Interactive applications are in demand for educators who want to involve their students in learning with technology. The electronic interactive whiteboard is a device that combines both of these attributes; offering shared learning experiences for large or small groups, as well as for distance learning. Having these boards integrated into the curriculum allow the teacher to teach in the classroom in a way that will benefit the students later on as our generation is growing more and more dependent on technology.
Creativity and Innovation
Students demonstrate creative thinking, construct knowledge, and develop innovative products and processes using smarts boards
Students use digital media like actiVotes and environments to communicate and work collaboratively, including at a distance, to support individual learning and contribute to the learning of others.
Students apply digital tools to gather, evaluate, and use information.
Tools such as the activPen, ActiVote, and/or Wireless touch pad
Students demonstrate a sound understanding of Smart Board concepts, systems, and operations.
Students will learn how to maneuver the smart board by frequently using it
Students understand human, cultural, and societal issues related to Smart boards and practice legal and ethical behavior.
I.E: •Advocate and practice safe, legal, and responsible use of information and the Smart board
examples of technology & media

SMART Board interactive displays
The LightRaise interactive projector is the only interactive projector that combines touch with the power of SMART Notebook collaborative learning software, giving a rich and engaging learning experience. This allows two students to work together simultaneously, interacting with content and collaborating, using either a finger or an interactive pen.
This flat-panel display technology allows the teacher help create compelling lessons that better highlight key concepts, engage students in different angles of the classroom and improve learning outcomes.
this technology assist with group projects. This will help young learners learn and grow together socially and academically. Smart Table collaborative learning center combines learning and play to inspire center-based learning and active collaboration.
Turn real objects into 3D images that will amaze your students. Or put an object beneath the camera to create a video that you can record, watch and save for later.
The Smart Slate wireless slate brings new possibilities to the classroom, giving the freedom to interact with the Smart board from anywhere in the room. The pen is used to write on the surface of the wireless slate, your handwriting displays on both your computer screen and the SMART Board interactive whiteboard or a projection screen for all to see.
allows teachers to create engaging presentations and dynamic collaboration sessions. You can interact with digital content and write over it on Smart Podium, all while displaying that content on a large screen in the same room or from a remote location.
Accessories for Smart Boards
These accessories include AUX cords to attach DVD player, stereos, pen, etc. these accessories would be beneficial to the exceptional students a English Language Learners.

both face-to-face and virtually.
Teachers design, develop, and evaluate authentic learning experiences and assessments incorporating smart boards and resources to maximize content learning. They do this by using relevant experiences and incorporate digital tools, to customize and personalize learning activities to address different learning styles and they provide students with varied and multiple formative and summative assessments.
Teachers model, communicate and collaborate with their students, colleagues and school community using current technologies and digital-age media to share and transfer knowledge. They do this by exhibiting their own knowledge, skills, and work processes representative of an innovative professional to a global and digital society.
Teachers model and advocate safe teaching and understand the societal global issues of media literacy in an evolving digital world. They address diverse needs of the students, promote digital etiquette, and they exhibit legal and ethical responsibility and respect.
Teachers continuously improve their professional practice, model lifelong learning, and exhibit leadership in their school and professional community by promoting and demonstrating the effective use of digital tools and resources.
Teachers are able to add pictures and information with bullets for the visual learners. Adding pictures is very simple you can just access the browser and upload the picture right on to the lesson plan.
Audio tracks can be added into lessons to benefit auditory listeners. The option of recording lessons on the smart board is available. Children can then go over notes at a later time if needed.
Kinesthetic learners benefit from smart boards by being able to use the special pen and write on the board for an interactive lesson. Smart boards allow children to move text or words from one side of the screen to the next.
legal, social, & ethical issues
Today's teachers face numerous challenges due legal, social, and ethical issues of smart boards in the classroom. Teachers can handle these challenges by always acting as role models in the classroom, teaching students to practice ethical behavior, and monitoring students.
These issues with smart board consist on copyright infringement. Weather it is the issue of teachers purchasing bootleg copies of the SMART software or teacher using lesson plans or activities of another person. There is also the issue of damage to property or teachers using video/ pictures of student in their lesson without the permission of the parent/ guardian. the teachers should also encourage student to follow the appropriate guidelines that the school enforces for the use of the Smart boards and their attachments whether they are using the internet or the drawing pad
