    "Brings my classroom to life!"

    November 4, 2008  |   By ShannMcC


    In and out of the computer classroom, SMART Ideas engages my students like I've never seen before. They jump at the chance to come up and manipulate boxes and contribute on the classroom SMART Board. SMART Ideas has brought teaching to a new level.


    I can't think of anything I don't like or would change with this product.


    I use SMART Ideas on an almost daily basis. Whether it's for my own use--arranging student seating plans, working out group projects or planning assignments-- or providing students with a blank map to fill in for assessments and projects, the colorful and easy to use format makes every day use of SMART Ideas not only simple but enjoyable. When I teach, I use SMART Ideas to break down my lecture points into easily-digestible bits of information. Students are more engaged when I lecture with SMART Ideas than rare times I do not. And better yet, I can simply save the file and send it to them through SynchronEyes and they're set for study notes. They love coming up to the SMART Board to fill in answers and move boxes around the screen and I love to see my students so enthusiastic and interested to learn.
