Intuitive yet powerful!
With SMART Learning Suite’s integration with mobile devices, it’s easy to make classroom and online learning collaborative and fun.
Introduction to SMART Learning Suite – six-hour session
Ideally, all teachers should participate in a full day SMART Learning Suite introductory professional development session so they can learn how to best use their interactive whiteboards, projectors, or flat panels. This training allows for hands-on creation of lesson activities and elements.
We’ll discuss and demonstrate effective integration of SMART Notebook and SMART Learning Suite Online tools into daily instruction. Exposure to and hands-on creation using SMART Lab interactive activities as well as SMART Response for formative assessment will be covered. The session will introduce teachers to best instructional practices and unique features that will better enable them to design and deliver engaging lessons in the classroom and/or online. Through hands-on practice and mini-lesson creation, teachers will walk away with lesson resource knowledge and design skills that can be used immediately.
“Everyday teachers creatively impact student learning outcomes with SMART tools and SMART’s award-winning Notebook software. With the recent addition of SMART Learning Suite Online, we’ll not only teach your staff the technical how-to’s for using the SMART Board, interactive projectors, and/or interactive flat panels, we’ll teach them effective application skills to meet differentiated instruction and your customized school district goals.”

Teachers know the value of professional development delivered by experienced trainers.

This half-day event will introduce new instructional practices and unique features that will better enable improved lesson design and engagement. There will be time for some brief hands-on practice and each participant will walk away with lesson resource knowledge and design skills that can be used immediately.
Mini-introduction to SMART Learning Suite – two-hour session
