The Use of a SMART Board in Teaching

The Use of a happy jump on in TeachingThe funding of this grant would pay for the purchase of a SMART Board interactive Whiteboard on a mobile floor stand for the Pace University School of Education De servingment. The SMART Board allows professors to include and integrate multimedia elements into lessons, such as videos and interactive demonstrations, as a result making lessons and lectures more exciting. Students leave behind be satisfactory to hear, see and participate with the information they are learning for that extra course.The SMART Board Interactive Whiteboard system comes with Notebook software. This software provides a variety of tools to help oppositeiate instruction. By having a SMART Board, professors and students are adequate to(p) to write with a digital pen or with their finger, onto the SMART Board screen. Files from Notebook muckle be saved in different formats, printed, emailed or stick on therefore, giving students complete access to course materials. E ssentially, anything that can be done on computers can be improved by having a SMART Board available.In the elementary and secondary levels, teachers are constantly trying to create lessons and activities that meet the needs of all pupils. I think that at the high reading level, this mindset secures lost. The majority of courses are lecture based with essays and written examinations. Beca mapping of this set up, I feel that college students loose their love of learning and att fireance and participation in courses begin to drop. If a student was a visual learner in high school, he will still be a visual learner during college. The interactive whiteboard caters to all different learners because it incorporates images, sounds and stimulations. Students are able to see, hear and interact with what they are learning.Pace University needs more technology. Pace University has been looking for ways to improver their enrollment numbers, as well as retention rates. Installing and assimil ating technology onto their campuses could be just one factor in accomplishing those tasks. As a former Pace University student ambassador and representative, I was constantly asked questions about the types of technology that are in the classrooms and what students are being exposed to. By having interactive SMART Boards on campus, I think these questions would be eliminated because you can physically see them. Pace University overly has an entire school dedicated to Computer information and Information Systems. I feel that by having technology seen in the classroom, will also nicely reflect the impact of that individual school on campus.The students at Pace University would expediency from the purchase of an interactive whiteboard in a variety of ways. Students will look at attending class as something exciting. Students will also gain a better understanding of the curriculum and concepts being taught, due to the assortment of tools and resources that the SMART Board has that c an be incorporated into lessons. Pace University, itself, would benefit from having SMART Boards in campus because students will be go bading on their communication and technology skills for the 21st century, therefore separating themselves from graduates from other colleges and universities.Pace Universitys motto is Work toward Greatness. I believe that by integrating the use of an interactive whiteboard into different courses that Pace has to offer its students, professors will inspire their students more. The Pace University School of Educations motto is Creating reflective practitioners who heighten justice, create caring classrooms and school communities and enable all students to be successful learners. I believe that the students within this school, specifically, will benefit tremendously from the interactive whiteboard. They will be exposed to a new technology that is widely being employ in schools all throughout the United States. Students will be able to render an open mind when it comes to technology and integration in elementary and high schools. Not equipping these students with these skills would be harmful to their wellbeing. Todays world is filled with different types of technology, from cell phones to IPads. Students are constantly surrounded with technology throughout their daily lives, which only makes sense to have that same technology become a part of their education.2. OBJECTIVES3. ACTIVITY4.
