Fresh from its first Global Education Technology Summit in Calgary, SMART Technologies, maker of the SMART Board interactive whiteboard, was on hand to share the knowledge and stories gleaned from education leaders representing the United Kingdom, Canada, South Africa, Italy, Mexico, Australia, the United States, and other countries. T+L Conference attendees who stopped by the SMART booth also had the chance to learn best practices from SMART Exemplary Educator Renee Marts. A seventh-grade science teacher at Durham Middle School in Lewisville, Texas, Marts reportedly has used the SMART Board to boost student interaction in her classes and improve students’ scores on standardized tests. Though the company didn’t announce any new products at the show, it is said to be gearing up for a major product rollout at the upcoming Florida Educational Technology Conference in Orlando Jan. 24-27.
