The SMART Elementary Classroom

When it comes to teaching younger grades, schoolteachers find that they have to constantly find new and innovative tools for the classroom. SMART Boards are a proprietary type of digital whiteboard that can be adapted for many different educational uses. Apart from simply displaying data, SMART Boards are also touch-sensitive. Instead of using the traditional erasable markers, teachers use digital pens that come in different colors. What makes this technology so useful is there is a variety of software bundles, interactive systems, and other digital educational programs that can be used with SMART Boards. Let’s have a look at how SMART Boards can be used for different types of lessons among different age groups in class.
