The benefits of a Smart Board in a classroom are huge for children.Prepared materials: Good teaching requires a lot of planning and Smart Boards make the planning extremely easy to organize. Teachers can prepare the materials for an entire unit on their computer and then easily put each day on the Smart Board. Materials are organized, typed, visually pleasing, and help students fully understand the material as it is presented.Endless space: Unlike a chalkboard or whiteboard, teachers will never run out of space with a Smart Board. Instead, the teacher only has to pull up another slide and continue writing. Also, teachers can save material from each day, so that the next day he or she can pull up yesterday's slides to review or to easily catch up a student who was absent. No information will be lost.Engaging media: Children need to be engaged in classrooms and Smart Boards make it easier to keep them interested. Photos, sound, and video are easily integrated into lessons with the Smart Board, ensuring that students learn all that they can.Hopefully it will not be long before every classroom will benefit from all the things Smart Boards have to offer.
