New SMART Table 442i Inspires Collaborative Learning

Latest Innovation From SMART Engages Early Learners and Students With Special Needs

SMART Technologies Inc., a leading provider of collaboration solutions and the company that pioneered interactive learning tables, introduces their newest innovation — the SMART Table® 442i collaborative learning center.  The SMART Table features an engaging 360 degree, multitouch surface with a brilliant 106.68 cm (42″) high-definition 1080p LCD display. The SMART Table enables up to eight students to interact simultaneously and actively collaborate to achieve shared learning goals.

Educators can access over 1,500 ready-made activity packs from the award-winning SMART Exchange website, or create their own engaging lesson content using the included SMART Table Toolkit. Teachers can also import ready-made lessons and 3D multimedia content, with award winning SMART Notebook collaborative learning software (included with the SMART Table).

The SMART Table is designed for durability in active classrooms, and is supported by a virtually untippable pedestal base that makes it easy for all students, including students in wheelchairs, to engage in active discussions and small group collaboration activities.

Multiple USB ports allow educators to easily integrate the SMART Table with other classroom technology, such as the SMART Document Camera to capture and display live images, video and 3D content. SMART Sync classroom management software (included) enables educators to easily transition from small-group to whole-class learning by sharing SMART Table content on a SMART Board® interactive display.
