  4. 4. A LITTLE ABOUT ME…  I am originally from the Chicago suburbs and have lived in Las Vegas for the past 4 years  I have been married for 13 years and have 3 wonderful children.  I have been an elementary education teacher for over 10 years  I have taught Kindergarten Science, Kindergarten, Art/Music, 4th , 2nd , and 3rd grade  I have a M.Ed degree in Curriculum/Instruction: Technology and I am currently working towards my Ed. Specialist degree in Educational Technology  I have always LOVED to explore new gadgets from the Apple IIe to the Laser Disc and virtually anything that has a plug.
  5. 5. WHAT AM I GOING TO LEARN? In today’s workshop participants will:  learn how to connect the Smartboard, calibrate it, and what various tools are used for  design two assessments (a vocabulary assessment and a group choice) that replaces a traditional paper/pencil assessment.
  6. 6. SMARTBOARD BASICS  What is a SMARTBoard? The term sm artbo ard usually refers to a specific brand of electronic whiteboard made by the company SMART Technologies, but the term is increasingly being used to refer to any brand of electronic whiteboard. Most smartboards have the same features, allowing users to input data through the use of plastic pens that contain no ink, the user's hands, a wireless mouse or pointing device. The software for the smartboard is loaded onto a local computer or network, where smartboard-compatible software can then be called upon for use on the screen. (www. wise g e e k. co m /what-is-a -smartboard. htm )  http://smarttech.com/  Hands-on experience with the SMARTBoard
  7. 7. SMARTBOARD BASICS LET’S LEARN THE TERMS!!! Pen Stylus Eraser Keyboard, Right Click buttons, and Help Touch Sensitive Board Directions: Touch and drag the box with the words next to its place on the SMARTBoard pictures.
  8. 8. TIME FOR A BREAK Please take a few minutes to stretch your legs and take care of any necessary business. During this time please come to the SMARTBoard and write down any questions you may have at this time. To do this activity: pick up a pen and write your question below. Please take turns as only one person can write at a time.
  9. 9. CLASSROOM IDEAS
  10. 10. YOUR ASSIGNMENT…  Today your group will create two assessments. One will be a vocabulary assessment and one will be a traditional paper and pencil assessment that can be converted into a SMARTBoard interactive assessment using the online program, Webspiration.  Please review the tutorial in your handout for the vocabulary assignment and complete this assignment first. Then decide on your traditional assessment that you will covert to interactive using the same online application.  Each activity should take no more than 3-5 minutes for the entire class to complete  Your group will be determined by grade level and should have no more than 4 people. If needed, please form more than one group per grade level or if there are not enough people please join a grade level close to your own.  Your group should choose a "teacher" to present your lesson to the group in the last part of today's workshop.  Please review the rubrics in your handout to ensure that all components are covered.
  11. 11. IT’S PRESENTATION TIME!!! Groups will be chosen in randomorderto present theirlessons to the group.
