This podcast is an interview with Beth Carter, a fourth grade elementary math teacher in Oklahoma who frequently uses a Smartboard in her classroom. Beth reviews the reasons for using a Smartboard, the ways a Smartboard can be used to not only present but encourage students to interact and actively engage in mathematics lessons, and how teachers can download lesson activities and templates from the Smarttech website to use and customize to fit their instructional needs. Beth also demonstrated using resources from the National Library of Virtual Manipulatives website, a free interactive website ideal for use with a Smartboard.

One Response to Podcast67: Engaging Math Students with Smartboard Technologies and Resources

  1. Cheryl Oakes says:

    This was a great podcast, just enough to get me together with the roving smartboard we have in the school. I love Virtual Math Manipulatives I use it for about 50% of my computer lab lessons for math.
    Thanks again.
