Laura Goley, a Spanish teacher, said over the past year her SMARTboard has livened up her room and encouraged more interplay between students. “We use it a lot for story telling,” she said. “I can put some pictures up on the SMARTboard and let the class tell a story in Spanish about them.” She said she embraced the technology right away. “Having grown up with technology, I was looking forward to have something more interactive in the classroom,” said Goley, 26. “It’s just so easy to display these things to your class on the SMARTboard. It’s better than having them crowd around your computer screen.” More than 1.7 million SMARboards have been installed throughout the world in education, business, government and military settings, according to SMART Technology’s website.
