For this course, I'll be demonstrating using an LCD SMART Board interactive display. Though, this may look different than the smart board in your class. The functionality is essentially the same. The smart interactive whiteboard mounts on to the wall in your classroom and while appearing like a rail whiteboard. It's a touch-sensitive device like the screen of your smartphone. This means that your whiteboard is now a window to the world, allowing you to access any resource that's available on the computer connected to the SMART Board.
With a laptop connected to a projector, you can share content, but with the SMART Board you're able to interact with that content from in front of your classroom. So, when a student asks a question, you can search out the answer without running back to your laptop. You can move the Earth with Google Earth. Or you can pull up a map of the value of the kings, all by touching the surface of your SMART Board. In this chapter, I'll be sharing the basics of how to get your SMART Board up and running.
