SMART Board Professional Development

SMART Board Professional Development

SMART Board Professional Development Proposal Created By: Jennifer Jones Overview What is a SMART Board? An interactive whiteboard with a touch sensitive screen that works in conjunction with a computer and a projector Project Goal: Facilitate the training of Millennium Middle Schools teachers in the use of the SMART Board, as well as its software and applications Need To supplement our lessons with an available technology (SMART Board) that is not readily used in order to provide the students with an active and constructive approach to learning. This will help students create meaningful connections and increase retention of the skills and concepts. Why focus on the SMART Board? Offers a variety of capabilities: Manipulate text and images on the screen Take notes in digital ink and save them for future use Use web-based resources Show and write notes over educational video clips Demonstrate or use software at the front of the room Showcase student presentations Use software provided by SMART Technologies Versatility in accessing Internet or commonly used programs (i.e. PowerPoint) Why focus on the SMART Board? Creates active learning environment Utilizes the constructivist approach Allows for use of Brophys strategy teaching method Teacher can model skills or activities while conducting think alouds Why use PD time for this? North Central Regional Educational Laboratory The primary reason teachers do not use technology in their classrooms is a lack of experience with technology. Ongoing professional development is necessary to help teachers learn not only how to use technology but also how to provide meaningful instruction and activities using technology in the class Plan of Operation Teachers and Subject Matter: Media Specialist (Expert) and Project Director will design and develop the training and materials. Setting: Training sessions will occur during weekly department meeting times. Learners: Each department (science, math, language arts, social studies, music and art, and electives) would be assigned a training day.

We would need time for: Teachers to complete the survey Media Specialist and Project Director to develop training materials Survey is short so it can be completed during prep time Release time would be ideal, but would cost extra money One hour of each departments meeting time No monetary cost as meetings are required, but does take time away from other focuses, such as NCA Alternatives Training Eliminates small group setting SMART on-site training More release time and more funding would be needed SMART online training Eliminates interpersonal and individualized focus SMART at an all staff meeting off-site training Increase cost but would reach less staff members Conclusion When the alternatives are considered, the proposed training is the most effective use of time and resources. Overall, costs of this project would be kept to a minimum and seems a small price to pay for the utilization of a technology that can be used to increase student achievement.
