Professional Development Title 2: Go back to Interactivity, with SMART Notebook software
Date: 21st January 2013, 9:00-3:30
Descriptor: Are you using your SMARTboard like a data projector? Looking for more interactivity? With the recent rate of production of new computer technologies and the filtration and integration of computer technologies has been phenomenal. However, this rapid pace of educational technology often causes confusion about what we should be doing as teachers. Sometimes we try to take on too much, which often results in teachers using technology mainly to give lessons a fresh look, often the interactive pedagogy is pushed aside especially when using our SMARTboards. This session will explore basic SMART Notebook 11 tools in order to bring interactivity back into your lessons. The same tools can be applied across most curriculum areas and year levels.
Cost: $150 per person per day (includes morning tea/lunch)
