We all know that as a teacher, it can be a challenge to capture the attention of students. Students today are increasingly distracted by cell phones, laptops and other devices of the modern age. Engaging students can become a challenge. I think that active participation in the classroom help students learn more effectively. But how can this be done?
After using the smartboard I myself was more engaged. The smartboards are visually pleasing to students and have qualities similar to the modern devices students own today. It is touch responsive and have "markers" that can be used to draw on the board, both are qualities that can be used to actively engage students in a lesson. Im really excited to explore the smartboard and learn more of what it has to offer.
