Smart Table Pilot
I recently found out that I will be part of a team piloting a Smart Table program for our district. A Smart Table is similar to a Smartboard, but it has like fifty points of touch! The teacher creates interactive lessons for small groups of students and they can all interact with the product at the same time. The reason I was chosen for this pilot is because when our district was doing walk throughs in the fall, I happened to be doing AWSOME Smartboard lessons both times! One of the people in the walk through was the head of the technology department. When the pilot program was announced, my name was thrown in to the list of possible participants. I am one of only three teachers in the district involved in this pilot!! Last night was my first training. I think it's going to be a lot of fun! My students will be so excited and I truly believe it will make small group centers a lot more effective. I sure hope this is a sign that I will be invited back for a second school year!
