Kindergartners learn with smart board
The Smartboard is my favorite form of technology. It is my favorite because of it's
many benefits in an early childhood classroom. While I have used it in pre-k, I
believe the benefits of the Smartboard could extend to upper grades as well. It helps
teach to all types of different types of learners. It has sound for audio learners, it is
very visual for visual learners, and children can get up and move things around for
those kinesthetic learners. Just as the children in the video are eager, the children that
I watch daily are eager.
There are many different websites that contain programs that can be downloaded.
These programs can be used in addition to the programs that are already programed
in the Smartboard by a company called Hatch. Hatch specializes in early childhood
learning. Below is a link where you can learn a little about the Hatch Smartboard.
