CLASSROOM SMART BOARD GREAT FOR DISPLAYING COINS

Dick Johnson writes:

I liked this article for the use of -- not only coins in the classroom -- but also how technology in improving learning visualization in education.

Smart Board According to Mid-Pen Technology instructor Tammy Hereau, a "smart board" is a white interactive board which is replacing slate chalkboards and two dimensional pull down maps.

"Teachers using the smart board are able to connect and interact with a computer. A smart board replaces the former overhead projectors most of us remember from grade school," said Hereau.

Hereau said use of the smart board technology in the classrooms allows for the students to view and listen to streaming video on the Internet as a learning aid.

A document camera used as part of the technology is so advanced, noted Hereau, that a teacher can scan in on a coin to show what the naked eye cannot see.

"The document camera can act as a microscope, allowing a teacher to zoom in on the back of a penny so close, the students can see President Lincoln sitting on his chair in the center of the Lincoln Memorial," she said.

My kids have Smart Boards in their classrooms here in Virginia. I wasn't aware of the camera zoom capability, but it sounds very useful. -Editor
