  • GOALS to use multi-sensory approach in teaching. to use communicative and interactive learning activities to enhance learning. teachers need to learn how to utilize the Smart Board in creating engaging and effective lessons. learn how to adapt and edit ready-to-use lesson activities. share their learning activities with each other.
  • GOALS less preparation time for creating learning activities. make teaching more efficient by using the same learning activities for future classes. eliminate copying and printing of lessons. efficient use of learning activities due to sharing with other teachers. promote teamwork.
  • SUMMARY OF NEEDS ASSESSMENT ANDPURPOSE OF TRAINING most teachers expressed adequate knowledge of using the Smartboard and the Smart Notebook. they asked for more refreshing and more up-to- date information. most do not use IWB often. they think that it is time-consuming to use the IWB.
