I know there are MANY ways to project and use a white board - we have SMART Boards here in Barnesville, and have for the past 12 years or so if I had to guess! We LOVE them - and have created a TON of material to go with them. The day that SMART Boards were removed from our teachers is the day I RETIRE - seriously - they are used THAT much and so much have been created over the years which is great! A few things have changed, and many things are better - and that is SMART Amp!!! If you have SMART Boards - CHECK IT OUT!!! It's free if you have Notebook (I believe), and it allows you to share with the kids so they can either follow along with you, or interact with you:)!!! YUP THAT IS CORRECT - FINALLY!! There are a variety of ways that you can share things, and you can share many things. You basically create a class, add the kids either via email, or give them a code, and then you can create "workspaces" for kids to follow along with or interact with - it's THAT simple! The BEST PART - you can see what students add to the workspace as it's instant and live. SO COOL!!! You can use SMART Exchange to download already created Workspaces - if you look on the left hand side and filter them.
Here are a few basic screen shots to get an idea of how it works
Here is the screen that a kiddo has on his/her iPad. They simply go to the SMART Amp website and join class with the code - it will automatically share screen as teacher assigned.
Have a great day all,
