We've got an inservice coming up in a month, at the beginning of February, and I've been given an hour to introduce the Smartboard to the rest of the staff and give them some ideas of how they can use it.
The audience will range from elementary through high school, all subjects. So I'd like to give a sampling of various subjects at various levels, then demonstrate some of what's needed to make the Smartboard work.
Most teachers haven't used a Smartboard before, but all are familiar with computers and should get up to speed quickly. I figured I would show the basic operation--how everything on the screen shows up on the Smartboard, how you can manipulate the Smartboard directly in all software--then get into Smart Notebook and show what you can do with it.
Has anyone done anything similar? What would you suggest I focus on?
All ideas are welcome!
