Members of the OCCC Science and Math Division researched the latest in classroom technology when they participated in a demonstration of SMART Board technology recently.
OCCC hosted the summer conference for the Oklahoma Council of Teachers of Mathematics June 11.
There, Susan Sawyer, certified SMART Board trainer, gave a demonstration.
The SMART Board Sawyer used was a third-generation model, produced by SMART Technologies.
Sawyer said they cost more than $2,000 each but could be shared by multiple teachers.
Math Professor Gail Malmstrom said SMART Boards also allow teachers to save step-by-step class presentations, so if a student misses a class, it would be possible to could go online and get the information they’ve missed.
