Smart classes provide tools & content for interactive self-paced learning guided by teachers. It’s an ultimate technology that allows learning through audio-visual stimulation coupled with freedom to manipulate and modify the lessons as per individual needs.
We have been successful in bringing technology into all our classrooms, integrating it into the students’ everyday life with the introduction of interactive whiteboards or Smart Boards. These allow students to interact with lesson content while allowing teachers to integrate a range of different resources into their lessons. The classroom transforms into an interactive forum for sharing experiences among students, thus helping in widening their analytical faculties.
Smart Boards include the interactive whiteboard, a Projector that is connected to the board, and a control panel that connects other electronic peripherals. Smart Boards interface with a computer to utilize applications. It is a large electronic board that is connected to in-class computer. One can display Internet pages, Microsoft documents, etc. while also writing on the board with the special Smart Board markers. It has a lot of flexibility in various applications in teaching and school presentations.
Smart Boards are designed to facilitate the sharing of ideas and increase information retention. Data that is produced on the boards can be saved to a USB drive or printed.
Teachers who teach students with different learning styles can use Smart Boards to provide a (literally) hands-on learning tool, giving students a colourful multimedia system that allows them to use their hands to manipulate images on the screen.
Smart Boards give teachers an edge to incorporate technology into the classroom; this multimedia solution increases productivity and the learning capabilities of participants.
The visual aspects of the SMART board's interactivity vary depending on its use. The image and document display is a prominent feature, but smaller features, such as the stylus pen and writing slate, allow users to work on the board from across the room.
SMART boards have the option of having an audio speaker built in. This allows for a greater volume in classrooms when watching videos and presentations The world has seen much technological advancement in military and entertainment fields, but one; very unique advancement in corporate and classroom technology has been the SMART board, a multipurpose interactive whiteboard that allows teachers and business representatives to display pictures, videos, graphs, documents and handwritten notes all on one media.
The SMART board allows teachers and students to work at their technological potential in all subjects.
