My name is Anthony Imburgia and I am a 30 year old graduate student through SUNY Albany's Distanced Learning Program. I am an elementary school teacher on Long Island, and I live in Glen Cove, NY. I hold my teaching certification in Childhood Education 1-6. In my free time I like to write, record and perform music. I also enjoy watching sports, and playing basketball. I was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, so I am a huge Chicago sports fan! When it comes to being in the classroom, I love running class discussions and finding out what my students are thinking and feeling.
My mini-course, Integrating SMART Board Technology in the Classroom, is a course for teachers who have SMART Boards (or technology much like it, any kind of interactive whiteboard) and are not quite sure of the potential they have in front of them. Many teachers are unaware of the goals they can achieve with this technology. We are in an age of technology in which many programs, pieces of technology and courses can make teaching more engaging for students and much easier for teachers. This course will show them what they didn't know they could do, in a simple, easy to follow fashion.
