Use in Education




external image empty.png TRETC.notebookSmartboards are an awesome classroom tool. I attained my SMART Master training certificate the summer of 2007 and have been learning ever since. I have a number of templates that I have created or modified for classroom use. Some of the links that I am providing are from educators that I have networked with at one time or another. They have allowed me to share their site. Please pass on these resources to your fellow educators to encourage the networking of great teaching tools. Some of the links are interactive and will provide hours of educational fun...even without the Smartboard in some cases. ( registration is needed) K-3 Sites for Using the SmartBoard
