Schools that are ‘up with the times’, always have the latest technology installed to ensure that their students reach their full potential. Smart-boards are replacing overhead projectors, commonly found in classrooms across the UK. Smartboard technology can enrich your curriculum by taking a typical lesson and turning it into a fun one. Today, I am going to tell you a few more advantages to utilizing this technology in the classroom.
Enhanced Learning Environment - Smartboards are now being installed all over the country, this is because, the amazing technology found within them not only enhances the way teachers teach, but it also enhances the way that students learn. Smartboards can provide students with an enriched learning experience by projecting visual elements. In addition to this, it also makes differentiated learning much easier because teachers are able to accommodate different learning styles. Visual learners are able to observe the whiteboard, while tactile learners can learn by touching the board. The touchscreen option allows teachers to run programs with the tap of their finger. This makes it not only easy to navigate for the teacher, but for the students as well. In addition, a student’s learning experience is enhanced by this technology because of its ability for students to view diagrams, charts, videos and more, right on the huge screen in front of them. Their learning comes to life, and many students find it more fun to learn than ever before.
Technology is interactive - One of the many advantages of smartboards is its capability to be interactive. Research has repeatedly shown us that students achieve more when they are fully engaged, and hands-on learning is one of the greatest ways to do that. All children of all ages and abilities have the ability to utilize the smart board at the same time. For example, newer and more advanced smartboards offer multi-touch screens, allowing multiple students to work on the same task at the same time.
Low maintenance - Although what you might think, smartboards are actually really simple to use, and they require almost minimum maintenance. Smartboards don’t use chalk or markers (which can be messy), but instead, allow you to navigate the screen using your finger or a special pen.
Online resources - Smartboards also offer students easy access to a wide variety of online resources. All of which can be quickly set-up during a class, allowing students to access many educational resources and websites.
Teachers have reported that they have seen a dramatic increase in the performance and engagement from students in lessons that use smartboard technology. These smartboards provide an extraordinary opportunity for teachers to create a classroom environment where students with different learning styles can learn from each other.
