MGIS finally has Smart Board Technology available for use!
This Smart Board can enhance classroom lectures and curriculum. With its interactive whiteboard feature, our teachers have the ability to elaborate on classroom demonstrations and save their material by recording every step of the way. This great asset integrates technology into a modern classroom in a very unique way.
What is SMART Board?
SMART Board interactive white board turns you and your computer into a powerful teaching, presenting, and interactive tool. A projector projects the image from your computer screen onto the board. These components allow teachers and students to come up to the board and “touch” it. Basically, it allows you to become the mouse that is attached to the computer.
What can it do?
In addition to allowing the user to become the mouse, the interactive whiteboard comes with a set of writing tools. The pen tray comes with four pens and an eraser that, when used, allow the user to write and draw on the interactive whiteboard. The pens do not contain any ink; rather sensors within the product tell it which colored pen you have and draws the appropriate color when you touch the board. Using the free notebook software included with SMART Board, you can assign different colors and patterns to any pen.
