SMART Boards Classrooms have evolved since the chalkboard days where chalkboards were one of the main tools for teaching.
SMART Boards are interactive boards that are used today in many learning environments.
They provide teachers with a variety of tools to create a learning environment for kids that is both fun and efficient.
The cost of a SMART Board varies from how large the board is and how many features it includes, just like many electronics. The price range is from $500 to $7000.
SMART Board Features You can say that a SMART Board is just a whiteboard but it is much more than that. It is an interactive board that comes with many features that make teaching easier for teachers. It projects that is on your computer, it allows you to compile notes and save them for a specific class. Students are also able to interact with the lesson and become hands on in a very easy way since it is a touchscreen. You also are able to access multimedia to help students get engaged.
