Smartboards here I come! That was a great experience working with the SmartBoard for my SuccessMaker PowerPoint presentation. It was rather easy to manipulate after I got comfortable and gained more confidence. Really you follow the same methods as using your desktop computer but instead of a mouse you use your finger. Double tapping on the screen still seems weird to me though! I enjoyed learning more about interactive white boards through Michelle's presentation. I'm interested to see and try some of the applications she spoke of like changing print to type, highlighting, and using the writing pen and eraser. My school district currently has a smartboard for each school and the elementary school will be getting another this year so I'm sure I'll get the opportunity to try these applications.
