SMART Response

Great Websites to use with your Interactive Whiteboard
Creating Interactive Lessons on SMART
  • What if the SMART Board was a student learning tool and the teacher rarely touched the board?
  • What if when we created SMART Notebook lessons we thought about what the KIDS would do on each slide instead of what the teacher would do?
  • How can I involve more than one student at a time at the SMART Board when teaching?
  • What if we created SMART Notebook lessons for the students to complete for homework and posted the lessons on your classroom web page?
  • What if we assigned students to create SMART Notebook files for projects?
  • If we think that SMART Notebook software is some of the best interactive software that we use as teachers, shouldn't we be giving it to the students to use as well?
