Class description: The SMART Board is an interactive whiteboard that improves the way you teach, train and present. Come learn how to use this technology tool in your classroom—no prior knowledge of SMART Boards required! The SMART Board combines the look and feel of a whiteboard with the power and applications of a computer, so you can save and print notes, collaborate on electronic documents, share information and run multimedia materials. When combined with an LCD panel or projector, the SMART Board becomes a large, touch-sensitive screen that you and your students can both use. Discover how to develop lesson plans that make use of this fabulous tool and motivate 21st century students.
