EOSC Gear Up Workshop

 EOSC GEAR UP SPONSORS SMARTBOARD WORKSHOP


 

Thirty–eight area teachers, administrators and GEAR UP staff members attended a three–hour SmartBoard workshop presented by Jerry Hutchings and Kathy Robinson with Schoolware, Inc. at the McAlester Campus of Eastern Oklahoma State College. The professional Development workshop was sponsored by Eastern Oklahoma State College’s GEAR UP for a Brighter Tomorrow grant program. 

The SmartBoard is an interactive whiteboard that helps energize presentations and motivates learners. Combining the simplicity of a whiteboard with the power of a computer, the SmartBoard interactive whiteboard engages students and audiences around the world. The touch–sensitive display connects to your computer and digital projector to show your computer image. You can then control computer applications directly from the display, write notes in digital ink and save your work to share later.

Best of all, the full–featured SmartBoard interactive whiteboard is incredibly easy to use. If you can use a computer, you can use a SmartBoard interactive whiteboard.  Hutchings demonstrated the advantages of using the SmartBoard technology in the classroom to make learning come alive. He provided numerous examples, teaching strategies, and tips.

Students can take advantage of interactive science labs. No more worrying about the expense of a science lab. It can be available to ALL students! Teachers can create lessons without using software. Any interactive software that a teacher receives with a textbook can be used with SmartBoard.

The level of experience with SmartBoard varied among attendees. Some were using it extensively; others had never seen the technology. Those with experience offered suggestions for usage and helpful web sites.

Eastern Oklahoma State College received a $6.7 million federal GEAR UP grant and is in the third year of implementation. Eastern has partnered with 23 area schools to provide students, teachers, and parents with additional educational opportunities. The event was coordinated by GEAR UP Professional Development Coordinator Lorrie Russ.
