Amanda Grayce's insight:

After watching this, and our assignment video "Mrs Moffitt's Kindergarten class" I wonder how much of the classroom time is actually spent interacting with the smartboard through the day?

 

I also wonder how much time this saves her in lesson planning, and if a written copy of lesson planning is still needed when using smartboard lessons? If so, I wonder how she writes them out since it is using technology and apps instead of worksheets and books,

 

I wonder if children are given assessments based on lessons from the smartboard, or if the smart board lessons are only used in addition to regular lessons and activities?

A Cheer for Spelling

Give me an S-P-E-Double-L, and what have you got? A really fun game that challenges your students to get their spelling words right. Ms. Carlos’ teaching activity is simple and easy to implement, and great for all learning styles.
Amanda Grayce's insight:

This artilce details a spelling activity that a teacher uses with her SMART board. I think it is a great example of NETS-S # 2c - "

Design and Develop Digital Age Learning Experiences and Assessment - "Customize and personalize learning activitiesto address students’ diverse learning styles,working strategies, and abilities using digital toolsand resources."

This activity brings visual, reading/writing, and hands on learning styles together for a spelling activity that is also engaging for the students. This is a way to customize the spelling assignment by using a digital tool of a smart board to build  a digital age learning experience for the students!

One of my big experiments this year is learning how to use my iPad like a SmartBoard. The first step was finding the right app that would allow me to annotate PPT files like you can with SmartNotebook software.
Amanda Grayce's insight:

This article links two of this week's topics together, brining in the Ipad into the classroom and using it like the smartboard. It shows how both technologies are important and can be used to heighten learning in the classroom setting.

This is an example of another technology resource that could be used in addition to the technology featured within the video of SMART boards that I chose.

As this article talks about the Ipad can be integrated into the SMART board technology by actually using the Ipads as individual SMART boards. Bringing the interaction from the SMART board to the Ipad allows each student to do each activity instead of taking turns on one board. I think there are pros and cons to each, and maybe using both would benefit the children most for certain activites.
