This week I found an article that listed the top 8 reasons why classrooms should have SMART Boards. Personally, I have had great experiences with SMART Boards in high school and believe that if the school is able to get their hands on some, they should. Some of the reasons that the article listed that I thought were especially interesting were low-maintenance, going green, and provides flexibility. The article notes that the SMART Boards were easy to use which I would agree with as long as the teacher is well informed on how to use it. I thought it was interesting that they noted the SMART Boards encouraged classrooms to go Green because it would use less photocopying, ink, and writing. Finally, and most importantly, the SMART Boards provide more flexibility and the teachers are able to include different forms of media at the touch of a button.
