At Laurel School of Arts & Technology we have equipped every classroom in kindergarten through fifth grade with an LCD projector, document camera and a SMART board. A SMART board is a whiteboard with a touch sensitive screen that allows a student or teacher to manipulate images and text with a touch of a finger.
It is rewarding to see students' excitement and enthusiasm (as well as teachers) when they interact with the SMART board. For more information about the SMART board please go to www.smart.com
A document camera is able to project any image directly onto a screen. Document cameras connected to the SMART Board enable teachers to display worksheets, read alouds, textbooks, exemplars of student work, manipulatives, bugs, rocks... you name it!
