Talk:SMART Board Technology and It's Application in the Classroom
Peer Tryout -- Rbockelmann (talk) 21:14, 3 May 2015 (EDT)
I think your topic is an important one which most teachers do not fully utilize. Smart boards provide us with so many different ways to teach students and educators need to be informed on how to properly use these technologies. Your Introduction page is great and clearly outlines what it is you expect the learner to know by the end of the course. Unit one also looks great. I love how you incorporated in graphics and outside links to other sources of Smart board media. I actually used your unit as a template when I designed my unit. It is well organized and provides feedback through the use of a quiz. I noticed that you also completed your other units. One suggestion I have is maybe incorporating something about how to use the Smart board setup wizard when you use a smart board for the first time. This is often a problem as teachers don't realize that the Smart board must be setup using "smart board tools wizard" before they can use apps like "notebook." Overall I think you did a fantastic job.
Your mini-course is professionally designed in its full shape. Wow! Each of your ID components is well handled, resulting in an informative and well sequenced mini-course that addresses clear objectives.
If I have to pick out one aspect that is slightly weak, it would be classroom practices: how can smart board be actually used in specific classroom contexts. As I said earlier in the analysis phase, you focused more on the tech side, which is fine. Your unit 3 could help educators more if its has more info about how the teaching process is like in the classroom.
