WHAT IS ? A SMART Board is an electronic whiteboard used in conjunction with a projector. The projector plugs into a computer and the computer’s desktop is projected onto the board. The teacher can write on or select anything on the screen using his/her hands or by picking up special pens that come with the board. A SMART Board is essentially a big touch screen computer.
IN THE CLASSROOM Recognize handwriting and turn handwritten words into typed text. Annotate digital images on the computer/screen. shapes, making any shape drawn by hand into perfectly drawn shapes. Be useful in creating games for students to learn. Record what you write so students can play it back later to better help them see step-by-step processes. Help second language teachers because you can choose a language other than English for the SMART Board to display. It recognizes the language written and allows the computer to put in accents and special characters when appropriate.
WHY SHOULD BE USED Allows for a creative way to involve students Great for demonstrations One-computer classes can maximize the use of limited computer access Pages can automatically be saved and can be printed, e-mailed, or even pasted into a website SMART Boards are EXCITING!!SMART Boards are EXCITING!!
WHY NOT TO USE A shadow is created by projector making writing and drawing difficult Elements can be sensitive to touch and somewhat confusing It is difficult use all of the features without some training SMART Boards are expensive Some students are sensitive to the light
RISKS & LEGAL/ETHICAL CONCERNS There appears to be no legal issues or ethical concerns with the use of a SMART Board, as it essentially replaces the traditional whiteboard. There may be some issues for students who have physical disabilities. Health concerns regarding both students with dyslexia and colorblindness. Headaches may occur due to the glare from both the projector and the whiteboard itself but can be further reduced by: Using lower power settings on projectors. Changing the default background color on all electronic resources when possible, to either a dark or pale color. Dark backgrounds and light color pens are very effective in bright sunny conditions.
