In today’s era, information technology is developing rapidly, and electronic devices supported by technology are coming to the traditional classroom one after another, in which many teaching media, including the traditional blackboard, have also been replaced, and the smart board has surfaced on top of the classroom of advanced education.
The Smart Board is not just a hardware teaching aid, but an ecosystem that can truly immerse itself in the teaching context and become an infrastructure for teachers to teach.
Enhancing the student learning experience
Students work best when they are fully engaged, and hands-on learning is one of the most efficient ways to increase student engagement. In addition, the multi-functionality of the Smart Board helps kids view charts, views, maps, etc., thus enhancing the student learning experience.
Humans are visual creatures and generally prefer to focus more on vibrant and dynamic visual effects. Using traditional blackboards and chalk is not very appealing to students because the constant colors and static nature will inevitably produce visual fatigue.
The Smart Board is the perfect alternative to chalkboards and whiteboards, with a high-definition screen that provides a clearer, more vivid picture that captures students’ attention and improves student interaction.
Smartboards are great for collaborative learning because students can draw or write on the same Smartboard, which greatly stimulates their creativity. By having students create on the same Smartboard, teachers can get students to venture out and create something unique.
Access to resources at any time
Teachers cleaning the board at the end of the day can erase the day’s lessons. Each lesson on the Smartboard can be saved for easy access or sharing at any time. Students can easily access a variety of resources to help them complete projects or conduct research.
Reduced maintenance costs
There are still some people or institutions that are skeptical of digital technologies and tools in teaching and learning applications. They think digital tools are complex and may require higher maintenance costs.
Smartboards are very easy to use and require very little maintenance. Instead of using chalk or markers, Smartboards use only your finger or a special dedicated pen, and you will also find them very easy to clean.
Smart boards not only eliminate the accumulation of chalk and markers that can burden traditional classrooms, they also reduce the amount of paper used for writing. Students can perform their writing work on the Smart Board instead of on paper that creates waste.
