What is a SMART Board?  How will it change my child's educational experience?  This article will explain these questions and more.

Your child may have told you that the SMART Boards were installed on Monday and Tuesday.  You may have replied, "What's a SMART Board?"  A SMART Board is commonly described as an "interactive whiteboard."  Essentially, this board can do everything a regular whiteboard can do and more.  This board is also works as a projector and as a giant touch-screen computer.  I can use this board to project textbook pages, worksheets, lessons, etc. without having to print copies and hand them out.  This means that eventually students will no longer need their books in class.  With the pages projected on the board, they will be able to look to the board to see the pages rather than carrying the books around in their backpacks and having the books take up so much space on their desk!  Additionally, if your student was unable to copy down some of the notes from class or missed school, no worries!  In the near future all notes will be on the SMART Board which I can then turn into a PDF document and post online.

How can children access these notes from home?  My class knows that all their homework assignments and class news are posted on my Twitter page: www.twitter.com/ReidMathTMSA

If students need to refer back to any notes from class, they can visit this page where I will now post class notes and classwork as well as homework assignments!  We use Twitter because it is free and you do not need to sign up or log in--all you need to do is go straight to the link listed above.  You can also use Twitter to ask me questions, but you DO need a twitter account to do that.  If you do not want to create a twitter account and you have a questions then you can simply email me at This email address is being protected from spambots.
