• Students listen to the class.
• Teachers write on the blackboards, and students write
in their notebooks.
• There is no immediate feedback.
• Evaluation: The teacher does a written exam, and the
students take the exam.

• SMART has the world’s leading interactive whiteboard for
• The board helps engage students in lessons, no matter their
learning style.
• Its touch screen allows for teachers to write, erase, and use it
as a whiteboard, but also allows for their fingers to be used as
the mouse to easily move through presentations.
• Interactive programs can be found online to help involve
students with fun art projects, learning how to tell time, making
music, science projects, and much more.
• SMART technology is already being used in over 700,000
classrooms around the world.
Library Resources
• There are so many new sources available simply within the libraries at schools.
Databases on computers
• These sources are all easy to use and efficient. It speeds up the process of doing
research and allows students to expand where they get their research from.
• Although this is a great source of
new literacy, there is a cost behind it.
Expenditures include the above
mentioned, but also software to run
the databases, the equipment, and
other required needs for the library.
In some cases the school doesn’t
fund for the library itself, but students
also start to pay a percentage of the
Emailing Information Vs. Letters & Flyers
In a classroom there is a lot of news, updates and important
events that need to be shared, as well as communication with
the students’ parents
• Letters and flyers are left up to the students to bring home
and be given to a parent, not to mention they waste a lot of
paper and a lot of printer ink!
• Email offers an easy solution to these problems, and best of
all it is free, simple to use and goes directly where you want it
to (parents!)
• Emailing also has many bonuses that letters and flyers do
not, such as it being completely confidential and also being
able to do things like attching links to websites, student
projects, other school news, ect.
School Budget
• The Department's elementary and secondary programs annually
• More than 14,000 school districts,
• 97,000 public schools,
• 28,000 private schools.
• Federal Budget for Educational Technology for 2008: $ 272
• The Educational Technology State Grants program (ETSG) was
founded in 2006, with a fund of $22 million. It gives advice to
teachers on the use of the newest technology.
• Teaching technology has come a long way
throughout the years.
• School systems are now using new technology to
help educate their students, while still incorporating
the old systems of books, blackboard, and
• Teachers need to know how to use these new
electronic tools, such as interactive white boards and
email, in order to teach their classes.
• In order to take advantage of all of the new
technology, schools need to have a larger budget.
Ideally, the budgets should increase each year, but
with the economy, money is being taken out of
school budgets.
