I recall when I first saw a SmartBoard. I was in college, substitute teaching, and they brought in a SmartBoard to install. I didn't really think anything of it. I knew vaguely what they were, and they sounded nice enough. I now have one in my room. My school sings the praises of the SmartBoard. It is the new wave in teaching children at a higher consciousness or something. I'm sorry to speak controversely, but I don't get it. Sure, the SmartBoard makes some neat use of technology, particularly if one is clever and thoughtful in the use, but I'm failing to see how this is significantly greater than... anything. Where do you stand on SmartBoards?
