Advanced Education participates in the 1st Annual Simcoe Muskoka SMART Users Conference.

On Saturday, April 10 2010  Advanced Education was part of the organizing commitee for the 1st Annual Simcoe Muskoka SMART Users Conference at St. Bernadette School, in Barrie, Ontario. Advanced Education provided a number of resources such as SMART Boards, document cameras and other classroom technology (removed ‘s). Advanced also gave away exciting prizes in the user conference and demonstrated new classroom technology, such as the Dual Touch SMART Board and the SMART Table.

The focus of the sessions held during the event were for current SMART users in the districts to share their expertise. The teachers participating wanted to make learning more interactive with a hands on approach in the classroom.
SMART has been hoping to duplicate these types of events in school boards across Ontario. With much desire, the organizers tried to replicate and create a SMART community within  Simcoe County DSB and Simcoe County Catholic DSB. The intent was also to create SMART champions and experts who can support new SMART users as more technology is introduced into the schools over the next couple of years.
The conference was a great learning experience, changing teaching and learning with the use of technology targeting SMART Boards. The SMART Board and its SMART Notebook software allows teachers to create more engaging interactive lessons. The event assisted teachers in developing new ideas by collaborating with other teachers ideas. It also helped teachers build a network of educators who understand the value of technology in education.

The sessions at the user conference were about how SMART boards are used to support Ministry of Education initiatives in Literacy, Numeracy, Special Needs and Student Success. These areas represent the main thrust of education reform in Ontario. All the presenters were volunteering their time to share their successes with other teachers, who in turn will adapt those strategies into their classes. They are using SMART technology as a tool to address curriculum expectations and Ministry of Education initiatives.

With more than 25 teacher presenters and more than 180 attendees, this tells us a lot about how serious teachers are about reaching their students and providing the best education experience for students.  This is a true example of community building.

Thank you to all who had turned out, it was a great time.
