Blog post. For a couple of years ago the headmaster in our school decided to buy smartboards to all the classrooms in the school. I work in a school with children from 6 years old to 12 years old. We are all using the smartboards a lot some teachers use them more than others. A smartboard is an interactive board which is connected to a computer and all that you do on the computer shows on the smartboard. The smartboard itself has a lot of tools to be used. For example if you are reading a text together in the classroom is there a function called spotlight there you can focus on a special part on the text with help of the light from this tool. As a teacher you can use it to make lessons in all the subjects in a file called notebook. You can write down tasks and put them in the smartboard instead of copying lots of papers and all the children can see them on the board. You can also write on the smartboard. You can look at websites together in the class on the internet and ypo can watch movies. The children can use it to show for example powerpoints. There are programs so that you can practice geography or English and since the board is quite big it is easy for everyone so see. The only problem is that there are so many things you can do and so many things to learn and so little time to learn. Catarina Olivos

  1. We have also smartboards at our school but we are not using it like you do. I agree with you that it is a very good tool to use in the classroom but it it very important that you as a teacher are sure about how to use it. I am learning how to use it and I also belive I can use it like you do some day. I agree with you that there is so many things to learn but no time to do it. If we hade more time we do so much more. The spotlight was a good tool to use I have to try it sometime. Annelie Tholander
