SMART Tech

Students sound off on how teachers are using technology. The Principal at our school wonders:
1) Do you use a Smart Board in your classroom?
2) Has Smart Board helped you learn? How?
3) Does your teacher let you use the board? How? When?

  1. Not all my teachers have a Smart Board, but the teachers that do have a Smart Board use it everyday because its faster. With the Smart Board I can see more better because the words are more clear to me. I do enjoy it because it is fun drawing on the Smart Board. All my teachers let me use the Smart Board by witching the side when we are showing a power point presentation, or writing on the Smart Board.

  2. Well i think the smart boards are really cool because they're funner and easy to work with and i can see what the teachers are writing really clear and when the teachers want to show us something from the internet they have it connected to the smart board and use it in there. the smart board are cool but it doesn't really make a difference in my learning because it does not really matter what the teachers use to teach us i just think is a more funner way to teach. What is more fun is that the teachers let us use them as well so thats really cool.

  8. I do never use a Smart Board in my classroom and I was thinking that Smart Board was only for the teacher. Yes,the Smart Board helped me to learn it because that Smart Board can use internet, movies, white board and can save it when the teacher write it. The Smart Board is helping you to good save money on markers and paper . It is cheaper. Sometime, I enjoy using Smart Technology in my classroom. My teacher will let me use the Smart Board. I will show my teacher about something important from English story on Smart Board.

  9. Since I've been in my English class, we have been using the Smart Board. It's been helpful to me because I understand things more because of the smart board. Ever since my teachers use the Smart Board, class has been interesting. And sometimes our teachers let us use the Smart and it's fun. I like to write on the Smart Board because to me it seems cool. But in some of my classes our teachers doesn't let us use the Smart Board because she thinks we are going to break it. I mean all we want to do is write on the Smart Board.

  10. I think the smart board is cool because it makes the class fun. Before the smart board the classes were kind of boring just sitting there watching the teacher write on the white board. The smart board really does help me learn because it's easy to see what the teacher is writing. We also watch movies and the announcements on the smart board. It is also easy to watch movies because the screen is so big. Most of my teachers use the smart board but not all. Yes our teachers let us use the smart board. It is just like going up on the white board to answer a question the teacher wrote, just a lot funner.

  12. Since I've been in my English classes, the Smart board have been helpful with my learning skills because usually when we would take notes on the board or the overhead it would be messy and unreadable. Also we would have to write things down fast and have to erase afterwards. Now my teacher can put things up on new technologies like communicado. Now a days when a person misses school we would have to go to the teacher after school the next day or when ever day you do come to school it would be more trouble especially if you were absent more then 2 days. So now the technology we use for communicado we could be at home sick but still have the work right there in front of you. I enjoy this technology because it's enjoyable. The teacher let us play around and experience the kind of tehnology around the room.

  13. We do use a Smart Board in class and we use it everyday. The Smart Board has helped me out a lot, for example when we used the overhead projector the only way I can see was to sit in the front row because it was so blurry. But now that we have the Smart Board I can see it from anywhere and it's not blurry. It is really fun and joyful to use. The Best part about it is that the teacher lets us use it to do work.

The smart board helps me learn because it is like if you were watching TV and i enjoy it cause it is a good technology system that helps you learn.

  15. I think smart boards are very cool because it helps you a lot and the smart board also helps to see the words better and there more clear to see the writing. And also because the writing is bigger on the smart board then in a regular board. It also helps you because if your sitting in the back seats you could see the writing in the smart board because the letters are big. Another good thing of the smart board is that you could see movies in it and the announcements.

Ms.Cestone does let us use the smart board, just so we can get used to it. The class, Ms. Cestone, and I enjoy using and learning with the Smart Board. It is a genius idea.

  18. Yes we do use a Smart Board in our classroom and we pretty much use it everyday. It has helped more on my assignments because before we had to write on the board and we had to use an overhead and we couldn't see clearly everything was blurry. Our teacher does let us use the Smart Board and that's mostly like everyday because she wants us to get used to it and it'll help us learn more and stay focused on our classwork/assignments.

  19. We do use smart boards in some of my classes. I think the smart boards are the best boards the teacher's can use because they can save the lectures that they write and they can save them, they don't have to erase it because they run out space.I would like more teachers to use this boards.Not all my teachers use this boards because they don't know how to used them.

  21. In almost all my classes there is a Smart Board. This is very helpful with my eye site and the teachers don't have to worry about getting there hands dirty with the markers. Smart Board helped me learn a lot, for example you can watch videos in it and also you can save some work that you finish last class.I enjoy the Smart Board a lot, like i said, my favorite thing is that you can see movies in it, its like being at home watching on a Big Screen TV. Well yeah the teachers have to let us use the Smart Board, all my teachers let me use the Smart Board.

  22. Technology is being use in my class all the time. Some of the software we use with the Smart Board are Audacity. One activity that we did in science was that we use the smart board to see a movie. Also other thing we use in the class is a web site that is http://www.seq.org and what you do is find communicado and what you do is check your class your taking and homework. Those are some are technology we use.

    Some of the softwares we use in the smart boards are power point,photostory3,audacity and many more.Past times that I've used the smart board were funny because at first I didn't knew how to use it but now I got the hang of it and I know how to use it really well.

  24. We do use the Smart Board in class. The teacher lets us use it when we have to go look back at our notes or when we participate in the class. The smart board dosn't help me learn, its the same as the white board and the over head the better thing is that its easier to see what the teacher is explaining and with better examples. I do enjoy using it because we get to go back and look at the notes if u missed something. The teachers do let us use the Smart Board, when we have to participate or when we need to go look back at the notes.

  27. Yes I do use a smart board in my classroom. Smart board has helped me because it makes learning so much easy and fun. Like if I run out of space on the smart board I can simply click on the option button to create a new page, just with one click. My teacher does let me use a smart board. She let's me use it for the "Do Now" or for when there's a problem that needs to be solved in front of the class. Technology has empowered me as a student because i don't have to take out all my materials. It has also empowered me because it's not BORING. It actually makes learning fun.

  28. As an entrepreneur, I think the Smart Board was a great invention. It's faster to teach, and much easier to learn. With the invention of the Smart Board, students are able to understand what the teacher is writing, without struggling or whining that their writing is either messy or blurry. Having Smart Boards is a priviledge to both students and teachers, because it makes work much simpler. Smart Board isn't just a board, it can be used as a TV, or as a monitor. A Smart Board provides a variety of sources, at a reasonable price. To wrap this up, a Smart Board makes a class fun and entertaining.

  29. In most of my classes my teachers have acess to a Smart Board. They are more effircient and take less time to set up, that gives us more time to get work done and get through a lesson. It takes up less space because it is equiped with everything from an overhead to a television.

    Smart Boards are also very fun, because we can watch movies, play music, and sketch drawings. This makes us enjoy learning and coming to class everyday.

  30. As an entreprenuer participting in Build, I feel technology is a neccesity. It blows away old technology like overheads. It has so many features and yet easy enough for anybody to learn.
    Instead of having to write, then erase everything, you can just write it once and save it. It has a very large screen which allows even the people in the back to see easily. Even though it is very large, it takes away the ned for t.v.'s, computers, and even white boards. One great thing about smart boards in classes is that it makes it exciting. One big problem for students is that they say class is boring.

  31. yes we use the Smart Board in our classroom.The Smart Board has helped us learn i various ways.One its helped save time in class,for example the overheads had markers that you had to wipe away the ink and it took forever, also its very fun and simple,well once you get to know it anyways. The teacher does let us use t when they are teaching us a lesson or when they are just simply lazy and want us to teach about how and what we learned.

  32. A smart board is the future of teaching. these things are resoresful and you can do so many things with them. hopefully these thing will replace teachers because they are not rude or iffecent at teaching. also they make every thing more intenteraning and teach you directly.
    I have a smart board in 5 class room.
    I like to believe that it has helped me more every thing goes by fast and their is less distactoins. Most teachers allow me to use a smart board useally because they want me to write something on it.

  33. Only three from my seven classes use a smart board. I think that more classrooms should get smart boards because they are fun, easy, and effective. In the classes that do have them, we use them a lot and sometimes even the teachers are allowed to show the teachers how to use the smart boards. The smart board has helped me learn more about technology and other school subjects. Before smart boards and other technology we use in school, class was boring. Now, it is fun and makes learning an easy thing to do. I have learned so much more from the smart boards than I could ever learn from just a white board. My teachers let us use the smart boards with different school activities and all the students enjoy them. The smart boards make us eager to learn more in school. We get to write on them, and show teachers how to use them.

  34. In my school we have smart boards. There is a smart board in most of my classes.I think that smart boards are very cool. In a smart board your teacher can do anything what you say, anything. For an example you can use notebook software, import, power point photostory3, audacity and ect....
    However not only teachers can use them,but students can too.

  35. As a young entrepreneur I think that technology is a big part of our every day lives. For example, at Woodside, they have Smart Board's. The
    Smart Board is a piece of technology that allows the teachers and students to listen to MP3's, watch T.V., take pictures, also it's a touch screen, etc. With the Smart Board, everyone is able to enjoy a long day of school.

  36. yes, I use a smart board in some of my classes. the smartboard has helped me understand the things we are learning in class by showing us powerpoint and everything is much clearer then an overhead, because they show me pictures of the lesson we are learning on the internet and also shows different web pages that the teacher wants us to see about the chapter or lesson. the teacher has let us use the board a lot of times, school use to be boring but the smartboards make it fun and interesting and much more interactive.
