Educational Resources: The Smart Board

This seems to be the latest tool in education lately.  Many of the international schools we’ve seen boast the usage of the Smart Board in their classes.  It seems to be one of the selling points – step aside textbook teaching, hello Smart Board!

What is a Smart Board?

In a nutshell, it is an interactive white board created by Smart Technologies that is being promoted for use in business and education.  You can observe the use of a Smart Board in the following video:

The use of Smart Boards in class rooms is intended to build interactivity within the lesson so that the children will be more actively involved in the learning process by utilising a problem-solving format.  Due to the ease of use, even preschoolers are able to use the Smart Board.
