Today I attended another online chat hosted by the ASTD--I'll be back with more details.
I also had the good fortune to be able to provide some inservice training for a group of elementary teachers in Calgary, AB. The training delivered was on the SMART BoardTM (model SB 580) which is produced by my employer, SMART Technologies, Inc.
Today's session involved an overview of the SMART Board and SMART Board Software and opportunities for each participant to interact with the SMART Board. Each learner was provided with some exercises and activities and encouraged to practice using the Board and Softeware over the next week.
In a week we'll meet again and work together to develop SMART Board- and SMART Board Software (Mac and PC) -based curricula for this group of elementary school teachers.
