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.
